The roadshow will also cover - Madurai, Thiruvananthapuram, Kolkata, Rajkot, Guwahati, Nagpur and Jalandhar.
The Singapore Tourism Board highlighted some of its big attractions in the Hyderabad roadshow including the Jewel Changi Airport, which opened recently, Rainforest Lumina and events such as the Singapore Food Festival, the Singapore F1 Grand Prix in September and Diwali celebrations in November.
