Think you know all about the latest season of the Emmy-winning HBO drama series Westworld? Here’s a cool fact that you may not know about the upcoming eight-episode series – parts of the third season were filmed at various locations in Singapore!
Various locations in Singapore were used as the backdrop for the latest season of the hit sci-fi series. This includes 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).
As a destination known for its varied architectural styles – comprising a unique juxtaposition of iconic skyscrapers with futuristic designs alongside rustic heritage buildings – Singapore was able to offer up an engaging and rare blend of old and new. The city’s unique, yet cutting edge architectural attributes was a key reason behind its selection as a focal filming location for Westworld.
Filming in Singapore was assisted by both the Infocomm Media Development Authority (IMDA) and Singapore Tourism Board (STB).
