Number 10: Sentosa Island.
Let’s start out by not going to Singapore, how about that? Trust me, it makes sense, in “Crazy Rich Asians”, both main characters, Nick and Rachel, find themselves alone as they broke up (temporarily…), and ironically, they both ended up on an island just outside of Singapore, Sentosa Island.
It’s easist to think of this island as a massive resort for people who want to get away from the city. There are tons of hotels, beaches, theme parks, and more. As well as nice little areas to get away from it all. It’s a popular spot for families, as well, and if you’re near Singapore, you should definitely check it out.
Number 9: Changi Airport.
Singapore is beloved for a reason, and one of those reasons is that they know how to turn a simple thing into a glamorous or luxurious thing. And if you don’t believe me, you need to look no further than its airport. Changi Airport was a big thing in the film Crazy Rich Asians, mainly because it was the “first glimpse” into the world of Singapore. And the main character noted that the place looks more like a resort than an airport.
Ironically…she was right. For that wasn’t a set, it was the real deal. Changi is a massive and luxurious airport that defies all conventions. If you go to airports around the world you’ll see some things that are “basic”, like stores, restaurants, and the like. But Changi has numerous flower shops, a movie theater, stores that will offer you just about anything you want and so much more.
Plus, if you want some more “natural” entertainment, the place even has a Butterfly Garden! And ponds full of Koi Fish! This isn’t just an airport, it’s an experience.
Number 8: Newton Food Center.

Now, we’ve all likely been to food courts, or places where they have tons of options and you just need to pick the dish you want to eat and then enjoy it. But in Singapore, they take this to a new level, and the Newton Food Center is the place to experience the “hawkers”. What are they? Well, they’re street vendors, but with a twist. For as revealed in the movie, these street vendors only offer up one dish. That may sound odd, but it’s more about tradition than anything else. For these dishes have been cooked and refined by the vendors families for generations, and thus, it’s the culmination of everything they’ve been working on.
There are actually a ton of hawker centers in Singapore, and Newton is the one that is the most popular, which is why it was featured in the movie. Those that live in Singapore actually say it’s not the best of the bunch! But it’s still worth a visit.
Here’s a fun fact for you, the Hawker Stands are the only of its kind in the world to get Michelin Stars.
Number 7. Merlion.
As anyone who has been to a big city knows, the real way to connect with the city isn’t just by going to the best buildings and malls and theaters and such, it’s to find the little things that are associated with the place. For Singapore, that would definitely be the Merlion.
Why is that? Well, it’s a really cool looking statue, and obviously, it is a fusion between a mermaid and a lion. It’s very well crafted, and the fact that it shoots out water into the nearby waters is actually a really cool effect. The film made sure to show off this Merlion in both the trailer and the film itself, and it’s not surprising.
The Merlion is a really big tourist attraction, said to get over 1 million people visiting it every single year. And with the release of the movie, it’s fair to say that this number has likely gone up.
Another reason that this Merlion is so famous is that it’s right across the bay from a certain famous hotel that you’ll be seeing on this list a little later on.
Number 6: Raffles Hotel.
Now, while it’s true that Singapore does what it can to truly stand out from the crowd with bigger, better and newer creations, that doesn’t mean that it doesn’t have a sense in history. And to prove this, Crazy Rich Asians had the main characters stay in the Raffles Hotel, which was built all the way back in 1887. That’s a lot of history within a single hotel, and while it may not look exactly like it did back then, that just shows how much the people of Singapore cared about the place.
