Crazy Rich Asians Filming Locations and How To Get There

Crazy Rich Asians is a 2013 best selling novel by Kevin Kwan. It was followed by two sequels, China Rich Girlfriend in 2015 and Rich People Problems in 2017. A film adaptation of Crazy Rich Asians was released just this August 2018.

“Nowhere in the world are there to be found people richer than the Chinese”

                                                                                                        -Ibn Batuta

I never got the chance to read the book and a lot of my friends really enjoyed these trilogy. So out of curiosity, I watched the film and mannn, I loved it! Who wouldn’t want to be a crazy rich right? The setting of the film took place in Singapore, New York and Malaysia. Luckily, I already booked a flight to Singapore with my friends and I told myself “Why the hell not visit these places?”


Shooting Locations You Can Visit :

1. 📍Changi Airport

– The spot where Nick and Rachel land after their flight from NYC to Singapore. The airport has a garden of beautiful flowers, high-end shops, restaurants, arts-y things, a movie theater and even a swimming pool! It is also one of my favorite airports ever!

2. 📍Chijmes
