No Impact of Zika on Singapore's Tourism

With only a handful of cancellations, there has been no perceivable impact of Zika on Singapore's tourism so far.

A Singapore tourism official said in a statement that Singapore remains a safe travel destination, as the country has a robust system in place to manage Zika, with the mainstay being vector control.
