Smart partners with WeChat for the latest ‘Smart WeChat Go Philippines’
Connectivity while traveling is made more convenient, thanks to the recent partnership of Smart Communications, Inc. (Smart) and WeChat as they launch Smart WeChat Go Philippines.
This program aims to serve millions of Chinese tourists as they travel around the globe, but most especially to help them experience traveling the Philippines with greater ease and convenience.
WeChat, operated by Tencent, is China’s most widely-used one-stop app with over 1 billion users relying on it for functions such as online messaging, mobile payment, transportation and travel, hotel reservations, and more.
The program has currently a vast tie-up in Europe, Malaysia, and Singapore. Not only it can be used for online messaging, but it also has options such as mobile payment, coupons, tourist information, hotel, restaurant, and airline reservations, as well as travel insurance, and many more. It also features a convenient Chinese-language user interface, easy top-up via Smart Mini Program, secure payments using users’ WeChat wallets, and more.
Mary Alice R. Ramos, VP, and Smart International Roaming and Consumer Business Head shares that customized Smart WeChat Go SIM makes the travel experience of Chinese tourists in our country more convenient, fun, and memorable. “With our special SIM, they can connect online for travel information, and enjoy all their favorite apps and services while enjoying the beauty of our country the best way possible,” she added.
