The Singapore Tourism Board will be hosting four live streams, called 'Singapore by Stream', on Twitch allowing anyone watching from around the world to get a virtual tour of the city. The streams will allow everyone to experience the landmarks and hidden gems of Singapore in a choose-your-own-adventure video.
A virtual taxi will take subscribers to their destination.
Explaining the concept, the tourism board in a statement said. "The taxi driver and a host will help give an insider guide to Singapore, sharing tips on where to find the best chicken satay and kaya toast (spoiler alert: it's Maxwell Food Centre and Ya Kun, respectively) and making stops along the way to show the best of Singapore while we're still stuck at home."
The board further added that the viewers will be encouraged to engage with the taxi drivers throughout their experience. It will "create the feeling that they too are canvasing the Lion City while travel remains on hold."
