Many of us envy the lives of the rich and famous. While sipping wine on a yacht or renting a private limo may seem like a far off dream, these seemingly lavish indulgences can actually be more affordable than you think.

Instead of going for the usual barbeque party at East Coast Park or having a karaoke get-together, here are 8 luxurious yet affordable activities in Singapore where you can party it up like the rich kids of Singapore – whether for a special occasion or just to treat yourself for fun.

 

1. Hold your own private movie screening – $15/person
