Enjoy the finer things in life - at a discount!

As we’ve seen from Crazy Rich Asians, Singapore is the place to be to live like a king or queen. But whilst it might look amazing from the outside, local citizens clearly don’t live the lifestyle you see or imagine. However, that all changes as prior luxuries affordable only to the wealthy can now be enjoyed by everyone. From fine dining to buying a branded handbag, we’ve got you covered.

So if you’re seeking that luxury lifestyle in Singapore on an average pay, here’s where to go to trick people into thinking you’ve got that enviable “Instagram-worthy” life.

The media has painted yacht parties has something the elite can only afford. And it’s also gained a bit of a bad rep as it’s usually seen in films with scantily clad (and attractive!) ladies and lots of alcohol.
