Travel with Remote Lands for Insider Access to Singapore’s First Formula One Grand Prix

(NEW YORK, NY, March 26, 2008) - Remote Lands, the world's foremost luxury travel designer focused exclusively on Asia, is offering clients the one-of-a-kind opportunity of attending Singapore’s Formula One Grand Prix, taking place this September. While Asia hosts several Grand Prix races annually, the Singapore event is of special interest as this will be the world’s first Formula One Grand Prix taking place at night. All races begin at 8:00 p.m. and are held on the streets of Singapore, not on track circuits. Racing enthusiasts can avail themselves of Remote Lands’ Formula One Grand Prix Experience, a five-night journey from September 25-29, which includes first-class round-trip international airfare, prime viewing locations for the races, a private tour of the pits to meet the drivers and view the F1 cars up close, and more. This unique Experience begins at $50,000 per person, and can be customized based on additional services such as private jet charters, helicopters, VIP audiences, and personal staff including chefs, trainers, concierges and other professionals.

The Formula One Grand Prix Experience includes five nights at the Fullerton Hotel, one of Singapore’s most historic, luxurious properties. The races begin Friday, September 26, with preliminaries taking place on the first two nights and the final taking place on Sunday, September 28. Guests will spend their first day in Singapore at leisure, preparing for the events to come. At nightfall, they will be personally escorted to the race pits to meet with the drivers and to see their F1 cars. Following, they will be transported to one of three prime race-viewing locations of their choice. On the first night, a private compartment on the Singapore Flyer, a giant observation wheel, will offer panoramic, 360-degree views of the city and of the races themselves; on September 27, a luxury yacht docked at the city’s downtown Marina Bay will be the site from which the races will be viewed; and on the final night, guests will watch from the Fullerton Hotel, which has balconies facing the street and unobstructed views of the race taking place below. One of Singapore’s top chefs will be on hand to prepare special meals during the races, and each viewing location will have private butler service.

During the days and between races, Remote Lands will arrange for guests to explore the city, planning a range of extraordinary, insider experiences. Based on guests’ preferences, these could include spending time on a kelong, a house on stilts in which fishermen families in Singapore live; a private guided tour and spice tasting at the Singapore Culinary Academy and Spice Garden, At Sunrice; and visits to ateliers of local designers, who will create traditional garments for each guest.

For racing enthusiasts that cannot attend this event, there are races elsewhere in Asia for which Remote Lands can create extraordinary Experiences. These include Sinopec Chinese Grand Prix in Shanghai, which is scheduled for October 17-19, 2008, and the Petronas Malaysian Grand Prix race in Kuala Lumpur, which occurs annually and will take place next in spring 2009.
