Whenever Filipinos travel, shopping is always at the top of their to-do list. And among shopaholic Pinoys, Singapore has made a name for itself as a diverse and vibrant shopping destination worth flying to.
This June, the Little Red Dot offers Filipino shoppers the ultimate retail experience as it kicks off the Great Singapore Sale (GSS). Celebrating its 25th anniversary, GSS returns this year with a bang, offering 66 days of fantabulous deals as it runs from June 8 to August 12. Organized by the Singapore Retailers Association, GSS 2018 is supported by the Singapore Tourism Board (STB) and UnionPay – the official payment brand for the 3rd year running.
