Orchard Road Shopping
Where to Shop and What to Buy in Orchard Road
Similar to London’s Oxford Street or Hong Kong’s Tshimshatsui, this bustling boulevard got its name after the nutmeg and pepper plantations that once lined it in the 1800s. Flanked on both sides by local and international department stores, tiny boutiques, offices, spas, beauty salons, hotels, entertainment spots, restaurants, and cafes, one could spend a whole day trawling the stretch starting from Tanglin Mall on Tanglin Road down to Plaza Singapura at the lower end of Orchard Road.
Shopping malls and centres are stocked with practically everything under the sun from apparel, consumer electronic items, local/international fashion labels and housewares. There is always some kind of fair or activity taking place in the malls and centres so there is never a dull moment. And if you are weary, take a breather at one of the many alfresco spots along the road and watch the world go by. The changing skyline on Orchard never fails to amaze. Malls or buildings are either sprouting up or being spruced up to keep up with competition. Buskers and performing artistes do take to the sidewalks on weekends.
On Saturday night, Orchard Road takes on a vibrancy when participating outlets extend their shopping hours till 11:00.Read More
