It’s been a while since a rom-com caused a buzz for all the right reasons, but Crazy Rich Asians has managed to break the mould – and moved Singapore right to the top of our bucket lists!

This trailblazing Warner Bros. movie is not only the first American film in 20 years to star an all-Asian cast; it also opens its viewers up to the sparkling world of Singapore.

Based on the novel by Kevin Kwan, Crazy Rich Asians tells the story of Rachel Chu (Constance Wu), a native New Yorker who travels to Singapore to meet her boyfriend Nick’s (Henry Golding) family for the first time – not realising they’re, well, crazy rich.

“We’re comfortable,” Henry shrugs when an awestruck Rachel is whisked away on a first-class flight. After that, the film is basically an opulent feast for the eyes. Champagne, diamonds, designer dresses… and a million reasons to visit Singapore and its spectacular sights.

Singapore Changi Airport

Fly: Into Changi Airport

It’s officially the first time a humble airport has made it onto our bucket lists but trust us – Changi isn’t like the others. Even if you’re not flying first class like Rachel and Nick, this airport offers a luxury experience. Named the best airport in the world six years in a row, it boasts attractions such as a swimming pool with jacuzzi, a cactus and butterfly garden, a movie theatre and rows upon rows of designer shops and fancy restaurants. Just don’t spend too long here – there’s still a whole country to explore!

Stay: At Marina Bay Sands

No spoilers from us, we won’t tell you what happens to Rachel and Nick at Marina Bay Sands. However, we will tell you it’s one of the most incredible places to stay during your time in Singapore. This luxury resort offers plush accommodation, the award-winning Banyan Tree Spa and its famous rooftop infinity pool with breathtaking city views as far as the eye can see. Even if you’re not staying here, it’s worth visiting for the observation deck, museum and selection of shops and restaurants.

Raffles Hotel

Drink: A Singapore Sling at Raffles

In the film, Rachel and Nick stay in the iconic hotel’s Presidential Suite. If that’s a bit out of your price range, head to Raffles’ Long Bar and order a Singapore Sling – a punchy cocktail made with pineapple juice, gin, Cointreau, cherry liqueur and lime. The hotel is currently undergoing renovations with plans to reopen in early 2019, so make sure to check the hotel’s website before your visit.

Newton Food Centre

Eat: In the food courts

Thanks to the many cultures that make up Singapore, it has some of the most varied – and most delicious – food in the world. Indian, Malaysian and Chinese dishes are best enjoyed in the many hawker centres on offer, where the food is as affordable as it is tasty. In the movie, Rachel and Nick head to the Newton Food Centre, which is probably a good place to start during your visit.

Gardens by the Bay

Visit: Gardens by the Bay

Fans will remember this as the reception venue for the no-expenses-spared wedding of Nick’s childhood friend Colin and model Araminta. Gardens by the Bay is an absolute must-see during your time in Singapore – preferably once in the day to view all the plant species on display and again at night, to see it lit up.

Sentosa Island

Play: On Sentosa Island

In Crazy Rich Asians, Colin heads to Sentosa on his stag do and you won’t want to miss it either. Technically not on the island of Singapore, Sentosa is a surreal paradise you can access very easily by cable car or express train. Once there, you’ll find sandy beaches, Universal Studios Singapore, VivoCity shopping mall, Madame Tussauds, S.E.A. Aquarium and much, much more. A perfect day out for both the young and the young at heart.
