“One of the Best Shopping Areas in the World”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 August 2012

This stretch is one of the best shopping areas, not just in Asia, but perhaps in the entire world. Shopping has sometimes been defined as the single standout tourist activity in Singapore. If so, the Orchard Rd. stretch is the best of the best. There are both upscale and local shops with everything in between. There are small shops and large department stores such as Takashimaya. There are simple local malls and elegant world class malls. Along with some very interesting shops, there are also great restaurant choices. It is accessible by Metro as there are two stops on either end of the stretch. There are such a plethora of browsing and eating opportunities that you can easily spend an entire day or more. A visit to Singapore is not complete without spending some time on Orchard.

“Shopping On A Global Scale”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 August 2012

Orchard Road really is a great shopping street. However, in this globalised and inter-connected world there probably isn't anything here that you can't find in in your own city or mall.

Whether or not it is better value than hone, is something only you know.

All in all, Orchard Road is a nice day out. Even if only for people watching.

“Stroll”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 August 2012

Had dinner and decided to head on down to Orchard to witness the change.True and thrill with the tremendous face lift and shopping mall over in the left and right. Notice there upgrading for human traffic as well via underpasses.
Great ambiance and lots of sales going on with lots of Pub and eateries all over.
Guess it will never be a fuss for shopping and charging yourself up again with wide varieties of foods.
Will visit AGAIN during X'mas time as heard the lights up are must see.

“Great shopping”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 August 2012

Great area to go shopping, you will be ble to view all the major brand stores, we found the best Tim to visit was before 3ish as it was very busy after that time. I found that I enjoyed the shopping in the quieter areas of Singapore. However Orchard road was well worth a look;)
