“Shopping Heaven”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2013 via mobile

There are so many stores, restaurants, and hotels on this street you could spend the whole day wandering around. First off it is so clean and the sidewalks are very large so you don't feel like you are stuck in a crowd. They do a wonderful job decorating the street and making it an attraction in itself. I loved walking down Orchard Road I just wish I had more money to go shopping.

“The essense of today's Singapore”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2013

The Singapore of today is really Orchard Road. Old Singapore still charms everyone China Town and a lot more but Orchard road is what modern Singapore is.
Some of Singapore's best malls, restaurants fancy and cheap, shopping and a lot more.
Among the best is Ngee Anne City, the main occupant of the mall is the Takashimaya department store.
I was saddened by the closing of my favorite book shop Borders a couple of years ago but in Takashimaya on level 3 is the 43000 sq ft bookshop Kinokuniya, now Singapore's best.
If you feel like a cold beer, go behind 313 Somerset to Discovery walk and visit Brotzeit. For breakfast stopover at one of the Coffee Club branches and have their Scrambled eggs with mushroom and pesto bruschetta.
There are 3 MRT stations and many bus stops connecting you to every part of Singapore.

“Come here to see, and to shop”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2013

Here you can spend as many hours as you want. You can eat at so many places in each shopping centre. There are so many stores. Maybe not so many budget places, but during sales you can make good bargains. Read online at the malls homepages to see which one fits you the most, or just try one by chance. If you don´t like it, go to the next.
