Sifting through old travel photos is the hard part

Instagram. Besides being the perineal black hole of everyone’s commute time, it is also becoming a repository of our photos and memories; the app equivalent of what picture albums used to do.

Indulging us in our favourite time-waster, travel activities platform Klook is now letting us trade in a past travel experience for a new one at their pop-up. The Klook Travel Pawn Shop will be opening for business from Nov 16-18 at Bugis+, and for those three days, all you need to do is post an image from your past travels with the hashtag #klooktravelpawnshop in order to get a free activity redeemed onsite. You can choose to post it onto Facebook instead, but why would you.

So yes, it’s essentially trading a tag for benefits, but with activities like go-karting in Tokyo and cooking classes in Bangkok for the taking, it’s a no-brainer.

You can’t choose which activity you want specifically however, but you can choose from which of these five destinations – Japan, South Korea, Thailand, Taiwan and Hong Kong – you want your activity held in. Or if you’re undecided, simply opt for Klook credits that can be used for purchasing an activity in any of their over 250 destinations covered. Time to dig up your old travel photos.


Klook Travel Pawn Shop takes place Nov 16-18, 10am-10pm at the 2/F Atrium of Bugis+.
