I really enjoyed walking/shopping down Orchard Road! Everything is there! Even if you aren't a big shopper, I still think the atmosphere of the strip is awesome.

Let's see... crowded, hot, expensive, rude sales people... why? I can't imagine why people would come here to shop. There are no bargains here and no attractions other than overpriced goods.

Air-conditioned malls line this street, and are always filled with Singaporeans for whom shopping can often be a preferred activity. The malls themselves give the shopping experience a whole new meaning, and contain eating places, supermarkets, luxury brand names, etc..

On your way back from Europe via Singapore and just looking for a bit of sun and swimming. Well Orchard road is the exact opposite. There are heaps of high end shops and everything you wish to purchase is here. From camera's to Gucci. Prams to Prada. Heaps of restaurants and eatery's.

Take your time,use a whole day and be prepared for anything!! If you can't get it in Singapore, you'll never find it. Enjoy the smells and sights of orchard road and be prepared to bargin, and go with a shopping list in mind. Also use public Transport to get around and save costs.

We weren’t impressed by the shopping district. Just hustle and bustle of a big city. There was a lot of traffic and if you don’t know where you want to go, it is a hit-or-miss shopping experience.

Not only there's shopping, but there's heaps of food too! Endless supply of shops. Food is also ridiculously abundant. It wasn't a question of what u want to eat, but more or how much can u eat!

Yes, you can indeed shop till you drop in the wide collection of supersmart shopping malls that Orchard Road offers, but there are alternatives: go more than once, taking it in bit by bit, or go with a single mission, heading for the purchase of that elusive CD in the impressive HMV collection, for example. Once that is accomplished, seek... More

We read this was the place to visit in Singapore so headed there on our first day. But really it is just full of plastic chain shops with no character. You could be in any capital city in the world. The market streets in Chinatown have way more character and charm!
