Singapore travellers opting for exotic, pricier places

SINGAPORE: More Singaporeans are travelling this year and they are opting for exotic and pricier destinations, undeterred by the costly packages which can go up to S$10,000 each. Tour agency Chan Brothers said it sold 1,000 travel packages within three hours at this year's travel fair at Suntec. Sales amounted to S$9 million so far. Tour agencies said the robust economy is seeing more travellers heading off to South Africa, South America and Europe.
