The prize

The lucky winner of our Pulse Survey Prize gets something very substantial indeed ­ a five-night Singapore city break for a couple (sharing a twin/double room) arranged by Pulse Travel in conjunction with Gold Medal Holidays. The prize includes return scheduled flights from London or Manchester, five nights' accommodation at the Swissotel Merchant Court hotel in Singapore, and local transfers.

All you have to do is complete our

drop-out questionnaire in this issue.

The destination

Singapore, the Lion City, is one of the world's premier tourist destinations. Located in the heart of south-east Asia, Singapore is a unique eclectic fusion of East and West where lifestyle is woven from the distinctive customs and diverse beliefs of Malay, Chinese, Indian, Arab and European races. It is a true delight to explore and the soulful ethnic districts of Geylang Serai, Arab Street, Chinatown and Little India reflect Singapore's rich heritage.

Despite her relative small size, Singapore has a good deal of tropical rainforest and landscaped gardens ­ hence its other unofficial title of The Garden City.

This dynamic metropolis offers a myriad of sightseeing options, shopping for everything from local crafts to designer fashion, dining at open-air food courts or sumptuous gourmet restaurants and entertainment from local festivals to world-class theatre and concerts.

And when you think you've seen everything, head for the resort island of Sentosa, just minutes from the city. Here you will find sandy beaches, rustic nature trails, museums, historic sights, an Oceanarium, Dolphin lagoon and much more.

The hotel

The Swissotel Merchant Court is a four-star hotel centrally located across from Clarke Quay and within walking distance of Raffles Place. It is a true urban resort, blending a great city location with relaxed resort-style ambience and facilities. The freeform swimming pool, landscaped with palm trees, offers a refreshing retreat from the city bustle.

Guest rooms are extremely well-appointed and you may dine indoors or 'al fresco' by the riverside promenade. The Amrita Spa offers a range of relaxing treatments and a fully-equipped gym.

The prize may be taken any time between January 5 and March 31 or October 1 and November 30, 2005 (subject to availability and booking exclusion dates). No cash or alternative travel arrangements are available. The duration of the trip can be extended for up to five additional nights at the prizewinner's cost.

Save £100 even if you don't win!

Even if you are not lucky enough to win this fantastic prize, don't miss a great opportunity to save £100 per couple on any Gold Medal Holidays Singapore city break booked through Pulse Travel before March 31, 2005.

Bookings must be for a minimum of two persons staying for five nights or more and the trip must be completed by June 30, 2005.
