It includes but isn't limited to popular tourist spots like Orchard Road and Chinatown, as well as at futuristic infrastructure and iconic architectural gems such as the Helix Bridge, National Gallery Singapore and School of the Arts (SOTA). Filming in Singapore was assisted by both the Infocomm Media Development Authority (IMDA) and Singapore Tourism Board (STB). I shall reveal the places so keep your eyes peeled while watching the series!
