Singapore has some of the most well-known skyscrapers in the world. An enchanting mix of imposing imperial buildings, extravagant shopping malls, and a variety of vibrant rooftop clubs. While the Lion City is a tiny country with a small population, its skyline on the other hand, is one of the most beautiful in the world.

After all, there’s a reason they’re the inspiration behind those “Crazy Rich Asians’’ hype. So what better way to embrace your inner crazy wealthy Asian than a night out at one of the stunning rooftop bars strewn across the area
