What they say about Time Out Singapore

“I believe that our arts and creative programmes will change the way we look at ourselves and also how others perceive us. But will we be perceived as 'cool'? That is something we should leave to others to judge. Based on the Country Brand Index released by global branding consultants FutureBrand, in November 2006, Singapore was 2nd on the Nightlife/Eating and the Shopping categories and ranked ahead of the US, a country that people generally perceive as to be “cool”. Incidentally, Today reported on the launch of Time Out magazine. The Singapore editor of Time Out magazine, Ms Billie Cohen, who was the Time Out New York editor for nine years, was reported to have said, 'Singapore is such a city on the edge with a vibrant creative community...Your city is such an international city that is now making its mark on the world map.'

- Statement by the Minister for Information, Communications and the Arts, Dr Lee Boon Yang on MICA'S strategy for promoting the Arts, Culture and Heritage in Parliament during COS Debate (MICA) March 2007


“I love the magazine and have taken out a subscription.”

“Carol Smith, a jock on Class 95FM actually does a segment called 'Ultimate Urban Guide'. It’s a 1-minute weekly guide on what’s happening in Singapore, where to go and what to do. She actually uses Time Out as one of her resource materials to do her segment.”

- MediaCorp Radio Class 95FM January 2008


"Two glitzy casinos are coming up and the Formula One night race is coming to town. There are happening new clubs and restaurants and an event calendar packed enough for an iconic magazine such as London's Time Out to launch an edition here."

- The Sunday Times, March 2008
