How you can book a Crazy Rich Asians sightseeing tour in Singapore
STORIES about Crazy Rich Asians filming locations in the Southeast Asian countries of Malaysia and Singapore are probably done to death by now.
But who can blame them for continuing to rave about the movie, perhaps one of the most (if not the most) successful all-Asian cast flicks of our time?
Directed by Jon M. Chu (of Now You See Me 2 fame), Crazy Rich Asians stars Henry Golding, Constance Wu, Michelle Yeoh, Gemma Chan, Lisa Lu, Harry Shum Jr., Pierre Png, Carmen Soo, Nora Lum (otherwise known as Awkwafina), and many more.
Based on the novel by Kevin Kwan, Crazy Rich Asians centers on New York City Chinese American economics professor Rachel Chu (played by Constance Wu) who accompanies her boyfriend, Nick Young (played by Henry Golding) to Singapore for his best friend’s wedding.
It garnered exceptionally good reviews, raking in a whopping total of USD 26.5 million during its opening weekend.
Expectedly, Crazy Rich Asians left quite a dent in the Singaporean tourism industry, with Gardens by the Bay seeing a 10 percent rise in bookings on Klook.
In fact, the travel activities and services booking platform reported a 55 percent increase in page views for a Singaporean street food experience.
Acknowledging the opportunity, Klook has created a Crazy Rich Asians-inspired tour, offering tourists the chance to “live like a ‘Crazy Rich Asian’ for the day.”
“Have you seen the acclaimed Crazy Rich Asians movie? Are you enamored with the lavish lifestyles of the characters? You’re in luck!” Klook wrote.
Fans can either book a Crazy Rich Asian experience for four or seven, a Crazy Rich Asian luxury experience for four, or a Crazy Rich Asian ultimate experience for four.
The Crazy Rich Asian ultimate experience comes at a cool price tag of RM11,467 (US$2,767), which works out to about US$691 per person in a group of four.
The Crazy Rich Asian ultimate experience itinerary includes being picked up at your hotel by a professional English-speaking driver in a luxury car of your choosing (Merc E200, Audi A6, BMW Series 5, or a similar vehicle)
Then, you will be taken to Marina Bay Sands and Gardens by the Bay, Singapore’s gorgeous iconic landmarks where you can indulge your Crazy Rich Asians fantasies.
There is also a premium sky dining experience on the Singapore Flyer, a giant Ferris wheel (and the world’s largest observation wheel) located along the Marina Promenade. Feast your eyes on the sweeping views of the Marina Bay as you tantalize your taste buds with the finest cuisine.
And if that is not enough, there is even a four-hour private yacht charter and a 15-minute supercar driving experience so you can really feel like a crazy Asian.
As Klook says, “This is a must for fans of the film and the book.”
