Travel-starved Singapore residents can look forward to gaining new perspectives on the city they call home through Pelago, a recently launched travel platform owned by Singapore Airlines. This new digital resource features a series of long- and short-form stories written by a team of in-house journalists, all linked to bookable experiences like the Dale Chihuly: Glass In Bloom exhibition at Gardens by the Bay, which runs until August 1.

Pelago’s current lineup, which caters to a wide range of interests, includes more than 200 curated experiences across the Lion City. Foodies can book a masterclass in making Singapore Slings at the Raffles Hotel, join a street food tour of Little India, or learn the techniques of wrapping Nyonya bak chang rice dumplings at Kim Choo Kueh Chang — a 76-year-old institution in Joo Chiat. Options for the adventure-minded range from bungee jumping in Sentosa and kayaking a mangrove-lined river on Pulau Ubin to a guided exploration of abandoned World War II bunkers in Marsiling. History buffs are also in for a treat: they have the chance to delve into Singapore’s little-known Jewish heritage with visits to two beautifully restored synagogues, and tour the last remaining kampong (traditional village) in the city-state.

All activities offered on the platform adhere to the Singapore government’s latest health and safety guidelines. As Pelago is part of the Singapore Airlines family, KrisFlyer members are able to pay for their bookings directly on the platform with KrisFlyer miles. They can also earn one KrisFlyer mile for every S$1 spent. Click here for more details on Pelago’s KrisFlyer mile redemption program.

Customers can now sign up and enjoy a 10 percent discount on their first booking at pelago.co, valid for one-time use and capped at S$10 per booking. More information here.
