With the announcement that Singapore will be opening up in the coming weeks, it is the perfect opportunity to start planning for an exciting day in the Lion City. Explore Singapore with a fresh pair of eyes with the help from Native, a premier lifestyle concierge that helps you discover and get inspired. The young, fun-loving company has a wide range of curated experiences and exclusive events tailored for well-traveled millennials and those who like to have a good time.
Originally founded in 2018, Native is a Singapore-based travel booking site that has undergone a revamp in 2022. It was during the pandemic that Native’s co-founder Kevin Chow decided to expand the company’s product offerings, and shift its focus to elevated experiences and events within the tiny city-state. For Chow, Native is a conduit that links lifestyle partners (think restaurants, bars, art studios, yacht companies, and more) to like-minded individuals seeking an escape from reality. Similar to his dynamic nature, the company keeps up with what’s trending and in-demand to curate its selection of offerings.
In celebration of the lifestyle company’s revamp, it has launched a campaign to “Make your ordinary, extraordinary”. The #LikeANative campaign features exclusive events alongside specially curated activities in unique collaborations with top players across the lifestyle, F&B, wellness, arts, and culture sectors.
“The pandemic has forced us to a standstill, but who is to say we can’t find a little magic right at home? We still want to celebrate life, and Singapore has all we need. Get messy at a NFT art-jamming session, enjoy exclusive culinary adventures, or try out a simulated golfing experience for the first time. The Native audience will be surprised at the wide variety of activities we can do right at our doorstep,” says Kevin Chow, partner and co-founder of Native.
Handpicked by Native’s team of global citizens, guests can have the chance to discover all the exciting and under-the-radar activities in their own neighbourhood. Who knows? There might just be a hidden gem located two streets away!
Some of the ongoing events and experiences include: A Gin Cocktail Masterclass at Flow Bar for the alcohol-lovers, conducted by award-winning mixologist Ricky Paiva; an exclusive Chef’s Table dining experience at Sake Labo, with front-row seats of the kitchen to witness culinary magic; and a hand-ons Rug-Tufting workshop at Studio An, where attendees can flex their creative muscles.
What’s even more compelling about Native’s curated offerings is that they are seasonal. This means some of its events are available for a limited time only, so you’ll have to keep your eyes peeled for all the latest happenings. You can access Native via its website and mobile app to get inspired, and book your next convivial outing.
