"Uncovering the hidden gems in every town"

TownQuest is Scratchbac’s latest campaign to encourage locals to explore Singapore, one town at a time. Explorers are encouraged to document and share their unique experiences with others on the Scratchbac app as they embark on their quest.

โ€‹

Kicking off this series with the vibrant Chinatown, this campaign is a week-long from 19 - 26 July 2023. Every town offers its own unique stories, hidden gems, and experiences. AND WE CAN’T WAIT TO HEAR THEM FROM YOU! We invite you to be a part of this exciting exploration, where every step leads to new discoveries (no matter how big or small, if you found a very delicious chicken rice stall, WE WANT TO KNOW! ๐Ÿ˜).
