When it comes to the two far eastern cities of Bangkok and Singapore, it’s a case of two opposites complementing each other perfectly
For decades, Singapore has been thought of as stopover city on the way to Australia or New Zealand, but now has become an envious Eden, mixing modern technology and architecture with lush and stunning vegetation. Bangkok, a party town for backpacking Europeans, bustles with life 24 hours a day. With its gilded Buddhist temples nestled amid gleaming shopping centres, spiritualism and commercialism live in Zen balance. And now, thanks to MasterCard, priceless memories can be made in both cities.
For two weeks, The Right Hook and MasterCard are running an on-air competition, with each contestant asked to name seven items within an allotted time from a chosen category. The successful few will progress to a grand finale, with two listeners qualifying every day.
And that’s when the real battle commences – with the 20 finalists battling it out in a Where in the World-style contest – with the winner earning the chance to create some priceless memories you’ll never forget.
A world of unforgettable adventures await you in both cities, and armed with your MasterCard, it’s never been easier. In Singapore, why not enjoy the sunset by cruising around the island in a yacht? With French champagne and canapés served to you, you can take in the stunning views on the southern islands bathed in golden sunlight. Then head on to Club kyō, the urban club for an urbane crowd. Located inside a skyscraper, a wild night dancing to hip hop and funk is guaranteed with complimentary guest list access on Fridays and Saturdays for some MasterCard users.
Or in downtown Bangkok, learn some local skills by taking a silk weaving course at The Loom. Over a two-hour class, with 10% off with your MasterCard, you’ll be able to design and weave your own scarf, shawl or bag, which you can bring home a souvenir of an unforgettable holiday. But if the idea of learning on holiday doesn’t appeal, why not head to the award-winning Thann Sanctuary Spa, where the hands-on therapists will make every stress melt away. And MasterCard holders can avail of a special deal on a body massage with essential oils.
Regardless of how you spend your time in Bangkok and Singapore, with MasterCard and Newstalk, the holiday of a lifetime is one you’ll remember forever.
