Win a magical trip with Singapore Airlines

This competition is now closed. Thanks to all who entered. The winner will be announced on May 12.

SilkAir, Singapore Airlines' regional carrier, is celebrating its 20th anniversary by offering some lucky Herald Travel readers the chance to experience the magic of travel in Asia.

It is offering a $10,000 prize package of return economy air tickets for four flying Singapore Airlines to Singapore, a two-night stopover in Singapore, including accommodation and several excursions, and four return economy air tickets to any of SilkAir's 28 destinations in Asia.

That could be Siem Reap and the ancient Cambodian temples of Angkor Wat; Chengdu, the home of China's giant pandas; the Indian seaside city of Kochi, gateway to the tranquil waterways of Kerala; Indonesia's island paradise of Lombok; the mysterious city of Yangon, hub of Myanmar; the extraordinary Nepalese capital of Kathmandu; the fabulous Thai beach resort of Phuket; the beautiful island of Langkawi in Malaysia; the Vietnamese city of Danang and the famous Marble Mountains; or colourful Cebu, oldest city in the Philippines.

The winners will be responsible for their own arrangements in whichever destination they choose.

All you have to do is send in a description of no more than 150 words outlining the most magical travel experience you've had.

The 10 best entries will be selected by Herald Travel editor Jim Eagles and nzherald.co.nz travel editor Eveline Jenkin.

The winner will then be chosen from those finalists by Singapore Airlines general manager Looi Tein Po.

Enter online or post your magic moment to Silk Air Competition, Herald Travel, PO Box 3290, Auckland.
