1) Find a very secluded place where light pollution is minimal, very preferably where there is no moon.

2) Check if the sky is clear; where u can see quite alot of stars.

3) Use phone apps (like planets, etc) to check where is the milky way.

4) if possible, use widest lens/ aperture as possible to capture the complete milky way. Bump ISO where necessary. Noise is inevitable unfortunately unless you're into full-frame pro. std. camera.

That should cover the very basic thing for getting milky way. As you progress, you can challenge yourself to shoot milky way in the city area, provided you're well in post-processing.
Good luck!

True, you can see milky way quite clear if it very very dark. I recommend use apps because somehow in Singapore, light pollution is still an issue. Perhaps I couldn't find a very remote place with pitch darkness.
