Stephanie Yip 29 August 2018 NEWS

Live the crazy rich life the next time you're in Singapore.

The fabulously fun rom-com Crazy Rich Asians has finally hit Australian cinemas.

And to celebrate, we're taking a look at four of its real-life Singaporean film locations and how you can visit, stay or drink at them – whether on a budget or not – so you too can experience what it's like to lead the crazy rich life.

1. Singapore Changi Airport

This is your first port of call if flying into Singapore and arguably the best layover airport in the world.

Built like a world of its own, it has won countless awards and features green spaces such as cactus and sunflower gardens, has games and cinema rooms, sleeping pods, a rooftop pool and free Wi-Fi throughout.

Singapore Changi is featured early in Crazy Rich Asians and is where the main characters Rachel and Nick arrive after flying out of the US to visit family in Singapore.


2. Raffles Hotel Singapore

Singapore's famous Raffles Hotel is the hotel of choice for Rachel and Nick in Singapore. It's a 5-star hotel (naturally) and renowned for being the birthplace of the drink the Singapore Sling.

On top of the crazy rich Asians in the movie, it has housed crazy rich celebrities such as Elizabeth Taylor, Michael Jackson and the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge aka Prince William and Princess Kate.

  • Crazy rich: Stay the night at Raffles Hotel. It's currently under renovation but will reopen in early 2019 for bookings.
  • Crazy budget: Sip Singapore Slings at the local bar or on a night tour for $65, including dinner.

3. Gardens by the Bay

Part outdoor garden part light installation, Singapore's Gardens by the Bay is an icon of the city and can be visited between 5am and 2am daily.

It boasts numerous venue spaces for hire, including the Secret Life of Trees which sits at the foot of the Supergrove Tree installation (pictured) and is the filming location of the wedding after party in the movie.


4. Marina Bay Sands Hotel

Shaped like a boat and sitting on an enviable waterfront location, Marina Bay Sands has cemented itself into the Singaporean cityscape since its inception in 2010.

Hit level 57 to reach its rooftop, which features an infinity pool that stretches 150 metres across or visit the observation deck for similar panoramic views and stellar cocktails.

The hotel and its Ce La Vie bar make a brief appearance at the end of Crazy Rich Asians as a party venue.

  • Crazy rich: Pamper yourself with views and rooftop pool access by booking a room in the hotel. Rooms start from $681.
  • Crazy budget: Take the lift up to Ce La Vie and snack on bites from SGD$12, drink beer from SGD$16 or clink wine glasses from SDG$24 a glass.
