Over 300 new tourism establishments and lifestyle venues have been added as PokéStops and Gyms for players to capture Pokemons and to explore precincts, discover hidden gems, and support local business!
The Singapore Tourism Board (STB) teams up with American AR technology company, Niantic, to showcase tourism offerings and encourage precinct exploration with the popular smartphone game, Pokémon GO.
Over 300 new PokéStops and Gyms have been added to tourist establishments across the island, including hotels, retailers, local attractions and food and beverage outlets. They are also located at tour ticketing stations in 10 areas, including Changi, Chinatown, Joo Chiat and Mandai.
The one-year partnership is part of the SingapoRediscovers campaign launched in July to support local businesses.
