Crazy Rich Asians is inarguably the most talk-about film of the year, being the first Hollywood’s masterpiece with all-Asian cast in 25 years after The Joy Luck Club. Those iconic scenes were filmed at Singapore’s hit list of must-go places.

1.Stay like a Crazy Rich Make sure you book a suite at Singapore’s oldest hotel, The Raffles. The building has neo-colonial design while its name derived from the country’s founder, Sir Thomas Stamford Raffles. Apart from the historic charm, the place is popular for its original Singapore Sling which remains a must-do ritual for both visitors and locals. In contrast, those who are up for lavish parties and nightlife, it’s time to indulge yourself at Marina Bay Sands® (MBS). MBS is famous for its architecture designed by the renowned Moshe Safdie. A variety of activities are just around the corner to fulfill your shopping hunger at Louis Vuitton’s Island Maison or The Shoppes. You can also visit the international art exhibitions at ArtScience Museum.
