Free Gifts for Travellers @ Taiwan Visitors Association (Singapore Office)

If you are travelling free and easy from Singapore to Taiwan, do not forget to visit Taiwan Visitors Association (Singapore Office) before your trip! Located at Chevron House near Raffles Place MRT Station, you can get FREE gift, brochures and maps for your Taiwan trip!



Free Gifts Available

How to know what free gift they are giving out currently? There are 2 simple methods!
Method 1: Just call their office +65 62236546 and ask!
Method 2: Read the last page of this HardwareZone forum thread, the forum participants share about what gift they received.

Take note
1. Different free gift is offered at different time of the year.
2. You cannot choose from the list which one you want.

These are what we received in early October 2015 - one-way bus vouchers between Taoyuan International Airport and Taipei, and discount vouchers for Window on China Theme Park (小人國主題樂園).



I have been eyeing for the bus vouchers! They were giving out hot spring vouchers in the previous month, so I "stalked" the HardwareZone forum thread at the same rate as checking PSI during the hazy days!


Things to Bring to Redeem Free Gift
Before you go down excitedly, please make sure that you have already booked the followings:
1. Air ticket from Singapore to Taiwan
2. Minimum 1 night of accommodation in Taiwan

Just show the staff the documents or emails on your smartphone. You are also required to key in the following information into their Excel spreadsheet using their laptop at the counter: your name, birthday, email, air ticket booking number, number of travellers in your group, and departure date.

If you are travelling with your whole kampung, no need to bring all the travellers in your group to redeem the gifts! Just bring along the document or email of flight booking with their names!

Oh, do bring along your identity card, because you need to exchange for visitor pass at Chevron House's security counter.

Take note that you can redeem the free gift only once for each trip.


Making Your Visit Fruitful 
After collecting your free gifts, do not leave in a hurry if you are not in a hurry! Take the brochures and maps! They are all free! The brochures and maps are organised into Southern, Central, Northern and Eastern areas.



Adding these to my collection of travel brochures and maps (yes, my hobby).


I was thankful that the staff at the counter was very helpful in answering my questions, like how to get from one place to another.

There are some money changers at The Arcade, which is just next to Chevron House, you may consider changing money there since you are in the area.

  3. The bus tickets you received would have been so much more useful to me than the National Palace Museum tickets I got!! Speaking of which, let me know if you want the National Palace Museum tickets okay? I never used them eventually.

  7. I did the same before I went for my Taiwan trip and I picked up the Easycard that was already loaded with a NT$100 deposit! I must add that there are many money changers in Arcade, easily more than 8 and they have one of the best rates in town.
