THE Natas Fair, one of the largest consumer travel fairs here, opened at the Singapore Expo yesterday.

The three-day fair, organised by the National Association of Travel Agents, has 158 exhibitors including travel agencies and national tourism organisations.

First-time exhibitors at the fair include theme park operator Legoland Malaysia and Japan Next. The latter is a booth hosted by the Japanese government to express its appreciation for the support shown to the country following the quake disaster last March.

The booth, which also showcases Japan's recovery efforts, will be offering free samples of iconic Japanese food items such as premium beef and Japanese rice wine.

A long queue of eager holidaymakers formed outside the exhibition hall yesterday before the doors opened at 10am.

The fair aims to draw 65,000 visitors and hit sales of $90 million.

It is open daily from 10am to 9.30pm until tomorrow. Admission is free for those below 12 years of age and $4 for the rest.
