Tripoto, Singapore Tourism Board come together with travel web-series ‘Trails 2 Passion – Singapore Redefined’

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 was aired on April 1.

‘Trails 2 Passion – Singapore Redefined’ takes 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, a creative guy who is extremely busy in life and ruled by stress will indulge in well curated, local experiences, whereas Veer Rajwant Singh, a happy go lucky guy, will have ultra-luxe experiences.

Speaking about the experiences Naveen Kasturia said, “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 travelling through Singapore, revelling 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 said, “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 Singapore Tourism Board and coming with such fun series, Michael Lyngdoh, Co-Founder, Tripoto said, “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 traveller. Our new web series ‘Trails 2 Passion’ is the story of two friends travelling through Singapore and discovering their passions along the way. It’s entertaining, fun and informative; just as great immersive travel content should be.”

The series will be around themes such as food, exploration, adventure, culture etc., to showcase Singapore as not only a fun and adventurous destination but also high on art and culture.
