From all of us at Seedly, we would like to say a big THANK YOU for the overwhelming response to our first ever Seedly Great Travel Giveaway!

Many of you have been asking and wondering:

  • “119 destinations?”
  • “Is there a list of 119 destinations?”
  • “I can’t find the list of 119 destinations?!”
  • “Why 119 destinations?”

Well… Did you know that our MRT network has a total of 119 stations in operation?

A Chance To Travel To Any Destination Of Your Choice

Here at Seedly, we’re all about responsible financial planning and prudent spending.

But hey, we only live once right?

To thank YOU for sticking with us on our journey to help each other make Smarter financial decisions in our daily lives, we have decided to give 2 lucky winners the opportunity to travel to ANY destination of their choice from a list of 119 destinations.

On an unrelated note (Notice we said “unrelated note”?), here’re some of our team members’ favourite destinations (around Singapore. We just dressed the part and made it look like the picture was taken in some overseas destination.).

Bali Buona Vista MRT Station

(What it appears to be: A casual, summery OOTD outside a cafe in Bali.)

(And did you notice this? ?)

This popular, island holiday destination in the Indonesian archipelago needs no introduction as almost everybody knows Bali for her sheer natural beauty, lush terraced rice fields, and vibrant nightlife.

Is your hobby surfing and exploring the great outdoors? Then good news because Bali is also famous for her beautiful beaches and is a surfers’ paradise!

Not a fan of the outdoors? Why not treat yourself to a day of pampering at the many spas and resorts that dot this tranquil paradise? Feeling hungry?

Bali has plenty of beautiful cafes and restaurants which serve everything from Australian style breakfasts to authentic Indonesian fare that is sure to satisfy any palate.

Hong Kong Coney Island

This city garnered the most votes among the Seedly team members – a lot of whom are photography enthusiasts – as having one of the most unique and iconic photography spots in the world.

Is food more your kind of thing? Well, who can visit Hong Kong and not try dim sum in a traditional tea house or indulge on fatty yet crisp-skinned roast goose at a Chinese restaurant that’s packed with locals?

Not forgetting fragrant milk tea and crispy condensed milk buns at a dai pai dong (open-air food stall) and freshly made egg waffles from the night market.

Hong Kong is also known as a wonderland for shopaholics who love picking up the latest high-fashion apparel from boutiques in Admiralty and SoHo, as much as they love bargaining for trinkets at street markets that open till the wee hours of the morning.

Either way, you’re sure to eat and shop to your heart’s content!

New Zealand Seletar North Link

(What it appears to be: A wintry morning by Lake Taupo, in the North Island of New Zealand.)

(What it is in reality: “Eh, faster take the pic leh… It’s damn hot sia!”)

You probably know this place from movies like The Hobbit and The Lord Of The Rings. But did you know that New Zealand actually comprises two islands?

Really hardcore landscape photography enthusiasts will know that the North Island is famed for its pristine beaches and snow-capped volcanoes, while the South Island is home to glaciers, steep fjords, and vast mountain ranges.

Should you ever find yourself looking up at the night skies over Lake Taupo or Lake Tekapo. You’ll be staring at awe at black tranquillity married to a poetry of stars.

Be it hāngi – traditional New Zealand Māori cuisine – or Kiwi burgers and hokey pokey ice cream, foodies will also be spoilt for choice when they visit the Land of the Kiwi.

Looking to immerse yourself in New Zealand’s Maori culture? Then you’ll definitely want to visit the infamous Mitai Maori Village in Rotorua to learn more about this unique culture. Wondering when is the best time to visit?

Closer to fall is our favourite time because the summer crowds would have left, and the foliage will be ablaze with orange, gold, and amber.


The Winners Of The Seedly Great Travel Giveaway (GTG)
