Tourism board presents time-lapse video of Singapore, ‘Where imagination touches the sky’

Singapore Tourism Board has launched a time-lapse video of Singapore.

The city state is presented as a “pulsating metropolis that’s brimming with an energy unlike anywhere else” in the two minutes 49 seconds film uploaded to YouTube this morning.

Welcome to Singapore

The video, which was produced by film-maker Rob Whitworth who specialises in time-lapse videos, gives the viewer a ‘flow motion’ tour of the city, including the construction of Marina Bay Sands, and sights such as the zoo, Sentosa, Changi Airport, Gardens by the Bay, and Lau Pa Sat hawker centre.

This video is designed to give local and international travel trade partners a “quick snapshot of Singapore’s dynamic environment, and share how the city is an ideal destination for leisure,” according to a statement from STB’s director of digital and content Terrence Voon.

“Through a time-lapse format, we also aim to showcase the city’s concentration of leisure offerings and inspire our partners in designing and packaging Singapore experiences for their customers. The intention is to capture the essence of Singapore as a culture-rich destination with innovative attractions, great food, diverse retail offerings, and world-class connectivity,” he said.

STB is currently working on a plan to create a new global brand platform for Singapore. One of the government body’s top marketers questioned whether STB was “telling the Singapore story right” at an event in Singapore earlier this week.
