Your Crazy Rich Asians 2-Day Itinerary:

Changi Airport Lounge

First of all, Changi Airport isn’t your ordinary airport, so expect nothing but luxury from the world’s number one airport. The first Singaporean scene we see in the movie offers the magical tropical getaway – it would be a crime not to explore it!

Brighten your day (or night) by visiting the airport’s gardens with the most alluring array of sunflowers, orchids, and butterflies collection you’ll ever see. Not really a nature lover? Then buy a ticket or two to a family-friendly indoor airport theater.

But if that’s not ‘crazy rich’ enough for you, recharge by staying at the upscale lounge offering V.I.P. hospitality, relaxing services, and spacious environment.
