If you love to shop, eat, then shop some more then this is the place to go. You'll find anything and everything here. I think we stayed here all day long and there were still other shops that we wanted to see. The layout is a bit confusing though. Plus if you are planning to buy those high end brands... More

This area is crowded not only by tourists but also by locals as well. Lining both sides of the road are well-known departmental stores like Robinsons, Takashimaya, Metro, OG and many others. Blocks of shopping malls lined the road from one end to the other end. Best time to visit is in June where they have the Great Singapore Sale... More

Orchard Road was a disappointment. How many Guccis and Pradas does one road need? It's spectacular to see the size of these shops, but what good would that do when hardly anyone actually goes in, or let alone, purchase anything in these shops.

No matter what your budget is, you will find a suitable shop here. There are shops and shopping centres lining the entire area. Orchard Road is much more modern than a number of other Singapore districts and has been hyped up to be "The place to shop in Singapore". If you are after a bargain, you will find them with... More

The buzz of Orchard Road is great all-the-year-round, but at Christmas time they really pull out all the stops and its well worth taking an open-topped bus ride to enjoy the colours and sounds. The shops are varied, I prefer to eat at 'hawkers' always fresh and very good value, but Orchard Rd. has lovely places to eat, great coffee... More

We enjoyed looking but if you want cheap avoid the brand shops and go into the shopping malls cheap food gifts and just about anything else. The Aussie dollars not to good at present but you can still find bargains

So much choice! With 42 or so shopping malls you need a bit of time to experience a good selection of these. Lucky Plaza if you want the old style mall with multitudes of specialty shops. Be warned, Sunday is when the Philipino girls, house maids etc, have their day off and meet here; thousands of them! The other major... More

Everything you could possibly want to buy is on Orchard Road, from high end (thank you LV for my gorgeous new handbag) to inexpensive souvenir shops. Make sure if you see steps leading down from the footpath you go and explore as there can be some amazing little shops in these arcades. We thought Singapore was on a par price... More

Orchard Road has been hyped over the years. It has been publicised by word of mouth as THE shopping destination in Asia. I couldn't disagree more. There are a lot of malls and stores here on the stretch. You can window shop and ship until you cannot walk anymore. But with the currency fluctuations over the last couple of years... More
