Tripoto and Singapore Tourism Board come together to create a new web series on Singapore

Tripoto, the global travel community, has partnered with the Singapore Tourism Board, to create an innovative, fun and exciting travel web series ‘Trails 2 Passion – Singapore Redefined’.  The seven-episode, web-series, which showcases the experiential exploration of Singapore by Naveen Kasturia and Veer Rajwant Singh, well known faces of internet web series scenario, will be aired on April 1, 2019. 

‘Trails 2 Passion – Singapore Redefined’ will take you along the journey of these two actors in Singapore, where they plan their own trails in order to ensure the deep exploration of their true passions, fulfilled to their hearts’ content through this journey.  Naveen Kasturia  will indulge in well curated, local experiences, whereas Veer Rajwant Singh will have ultra-luxe experiences.
Speaking about the experiences Naveen Kasturia, says, “When Tripoto approached me for this project, I didn’t give it a second thought. I said yes as I knew I had to do it. It is for the 1st time that I have done an experiential travel show and it has been quite an experience. As an actor, I had my moment of truth and got a chance to improvise and be spontaneous in front of the camera. Travel puts a lot of things into perspective and shooting for this show made me explore Singapore by breaking off the monotonous planned schedules I am used to following. Veer and I had a blast traveling through Singapore, reveling in the culture and the offbeat experiences this place had to offer. I am sure our audience too will be left awestruck following our travel trails through Singapore.”
Adding to his experience Veer Rajwant Singh, says, “I have been wanting to do a travel show for some time. It is because you are not merely acting, you are living your passion and enacting as is. I explored a whole new side of me in Singapore in an entirely different light. Most of my shots were the real-time reactions to the experiences curated. Not only did I try some cool adventure activities, but I also came in touch with local experiences, more of which you will see in Trails 2 Passion – Singapore Redefined.”
The 6-7 minutes, 7-episode web-series will have upbeat and catchy content on Singapore, with extra-worthy information and illustrated trail map of the theme at the end of each episode. Speaking on the association with the Singapore Tourism Board and coming with such fun series, Michael Lyngdoh, Co-Founder, Tripoto, says, “Tripoto and STB are collaborating to showcase a different side to Singapore. It is an amalgam of exciting culinary experiences, adrenaline pumping adventures and beautifully diverse cultures packed into one city. Singapore now appeals to the global experiential traveler. Our new web series “Trails 2 Passion” is the story of two friends traveling through Singapore and discovering their passions along the way. It’s entertaining, fun and informative; just as great immersive travel content should be.”
Sharing his thoughts on the association, Anirudh Gupta – Co-Founder, Tripoto, says “There is no better way to promote a destination than through authentic and relatable storytelling. This has always been Tripoto’s uniqueness and strength as a travel community platform. In this collaboration with the STB we have used the power of authentic storytelling and our huge distribution to reach out to the millennial audience. We want to thank the STB that has given us an opportunity to tell Singapore’s story. It is truly a destination that appeals to all and especially to millennials that are looking for many diverse experiences packed into 1 destination.”
Speaking on their association with Tripoto, GB Srithar, Regional Director (South Asia Middle East and Africa), Singapore Tourism Board, says, “With a high penetration of smart phones and growing number of digital native young consuming content online, there are new, exciting opportunities to connect with them. Our partnership with Tripoto is a creative way of telling Singapore tourism stories. We are happy to have two cool millennials — Naveen and Veer showcase their recent trip. “Trails 2 Passion – Singapore Redefined” tells their stories, in their own voices. Their escapades will entice Indian travellers to enjoy our diverse offerings and live up their own passions”
Open screening of three episodes of  ‘Trails 2 Passion – Singapore Redefined’ was held on  March 30 with Actor Veer Rajwant Singh at DLF Promenade, Delhi, organized by Tripoto and Singapore Tourism Board. Travel enthusiasts from around the city gathered for the evening where Veer Rajwant Singh and production crew shared their anecdotes from Singapore. A panel discussion was organized on “Emerging Travel Trails- Rise of Immersive, Experiential travel in India.”
