The Spooktacular Experience

Singapore wants to offer more than the sights and the sounds in the hopes of attracting more tourists. Singapore tourism is now focusing on “experiential tourism”. This is a new concept but many people are considering it because it engages all senses. Travelling is now more than just your traditional sight-seeing.

An example of “experiential tourism” is Spooktacular. Every year, Singapore celebrates the Halloween but this year is different. Sentosa’s Fort Siloso will be transformed to a haunted village called Laddaland. This is the 1st year of the 3 year contract signed with a film production house in Thailand. The Horror film production house is named GMM Tai Hub. The partnership will surely upgrade the scare this Halloween.

If you want to check Laddaland, you are free to go to Fort Siloso and feel their presence. Here are some information that you might find valuable:
