Protravel America, a corporate and luxury leisure agency, is dangling an exclusive deal for fans who covet an over-the-top, luxe Singapore lifestyle adventure akin to the one portrayed in the blockbuster 2018 movie “Crazy Rich Asians.”
The six-day, highly curated vacation experience — dubbed the “Crazy Rich Americans Love Singapore Tour” — starts at a high price that Nick of “Crazy Rich Asians” would have no problem with: $30,000. That’s fitting, as the tour allows guests to visit many of the same locations in Singapore that are featured in the popular rom-com smash, such as the iconic Marina Bay Sands Hotel.
Here’s a peek at what to expect if you choose to book this incredible journey that you won’t be able to replicate anywhere else.
Arrive at the Changi Airport — where Nick and Rachel landed after traveling from New York — and a VIP car service will take you to the lovely Marina Bay Sands Hotel. There, you’ll have an on-call butler at your service round-the-clock.
Once you unpack, you’ll be able to lounge in your two-bedroom suite — which books for $575 per night and up — take a dip in the infinity rooftop pool or indulge in a massage. Later, sip cocktails at the open-air Ce La Vi and enjoy a memorable, upscale dining experience at world-renowned Chinoiseri.
A car will arrive to take you on a private tour of the city, including Chinatown, Arab Street and Little India. After lunch, you’ll shop top luxury brands such as Chanel and Bulgari, as well as offerings from local designers. Then on to souvenir shopping at destinations such as Tanglin Mall or Dempsey Hill.
For your evening meal, you’ll visit Newton Circus — aka the open-air food court Nick and Rachel visited — and enjoy an after-dinner cocktail at the award-winning Manhattan bar.
After breakfast at the hotel, you’ll visit the shophouses of Bukit Pasoh, where you can channel Rachel as you learn the secrets of Mahjong — a complex game with deep roots in Asian culture. Lunchtime will find you viewing Asian art at the National Gallery where you’ll also enjoy lunch at the Michelin-star French restaurant Odette.
Afterward, your car service will whisk you away to the five-star Capella resort on Sentosa Island where rooms book for $538 per night and up. There, you can check in and prepare for a sunset yacht cruise followed by another Michelin-star dining experience at Forest.
Here’s What I Do: My Favorite Ways to Save on Luxury Vacations
Enjoy a day on Sentosa Island, filled with a private colonial homes tour and an exploration of the stunning botanic gardens. While there, enjoy Chef Jason Tan’s sumptuous Gastro-Botanica cuisine at Corner House, another Michelin-star restaurant. You’ll also visit Chijmes –a former church where the wedding scene from the movie was filmed. Finally, you’ll dine at yet another Michelin-star establishment: British restaurant, Jaan. Afterward, you’ll have options to take a night safari tour at the Singapore Zoo — tickets start at $35.55 — or check out the club or bar scene.
On your last day before departure, you’ll witness the craft of Peranakan beadwork with a top fashion designer and dine at Malcolm Lee’s Candlenut, the only Michelin-star Peranakan cuisine restaurant in existence. After lunch, experience another movie location — Gardens by the Bay, which costs $8-$28 per admission. The attraction includes the Flower Dome, Cloud Forest and Supertrees. To end your evening, you’ll dine at Indochine, a restaurant perched in the top of the Supertrees.
Your private car will arrive to take you to the airport after breakfast where you can prepare for your journey home.
