In today’s Instagram-centric age, it’s pretty much a requirement to take an abundance of photos while you’re on holiday.

But what happens to those photos after said holiday? More often than not those painstakingly VSCO’d pictures get lost in your phone’s photo gallery, never to be seen again until nostalgia kicks in every once in awhile.

Klook’s Travel Pawn Shop, however, is looking to change that.

Old Memories, New Experiences

Happening this Friday to Sunday at the Bugis+ Atrium, this pop-up is giving you the chance to “trade” your travel memories for tangible rewards.

All you have to do is head down this weekend, post a photo with the hashtag #travelpawnshop on Instagram or Facebook, and you’ll be given a pawn ticket that grants you entry to the pawn shop.

This pawn ticket can then be redeemed for one of Klook’s 10,000 “mystery experiences” in Japan, Korea, Thailand, Taiwan or Hong Kong, which includes cooking classes in Bangkok and go-karting down the streets of Akihabara.

And if you’re not in the mood to try your luck, you can use the pawn ticket to redeem Klook credits instead, which give you a discount on your next booking with Klook.

Not a bad deal, considering that all you have to do is dig out something that’ll take two minutes to find.

On top of that, there’ll be an Ask Klook Booth, where Klook staff will be ready to give you travel advice and answer any queries that you might have. There’ll also be flash deals on popular attractions such as Universal Studios Japan and Ocean Park Hong Kong happening at 2pm-6pm on Saturday and Sunday, so look out for that as well.

With vacation season on the horizon, this pop-up couldn’t have come at a better time. If you’re in the Bugis area this weekend, we’d definitely recommend heading down.
