"As Singapore’s tallest vertical mall, Orchard Central is an exciting and inviting spot to do your shopping. Designed such that glass is a central feature throughout, the mall has a breezy and welcoming feel.

Billed as an experience for the stylish shopper, Orchard Central has everything from fashion to food, including Singapore’s first Mediterranean-style marketplace, which also gives it a clear point of difference from other rival malls. "

This is an impressive vertical shopping mall opened 2009 in Orchard Road and offers a wide range of shops and restaurants.It is claimed to be the first and only vertical mall but if you like shopping and high rise buildings try this one.

Right at the middle of the Orchard road, it's a huge mall with all the global brands available here. The Somerset MRT is accessible right through this mall. Lot of eatery joints. A good place for a relaxing stroll and enjoy the dazzling lights of the evening.

This shopping mall has a weird layout which is pointed out by some of the TA members. A lot of dead ends and isolated shops/eateries within the building as you go up the floors with the escalators. It has a very long escalator that you can take towards the top floor for a good view of the Orchard area. Just... More

I guess their most profitable tenants are F&B outlet, Apple Store and possibly Tokyu Hands It houses some really popular eating places such as Kilo@Pact, Tanuki Raw and Lady M This place can be pretty dead - quiet with underutilized space I hate to say, the worst thing about this mall is its layout. Some of the escalator and lifts... More

One just need to walk around to understand how confusing this mall is, with its poor design & complicated shops layouts. It's so tedious to find the shops that one wanted to go to, let alone to browse through the whole mall. So many empty units can be seen all over the mall at all levels - for a long... More

Decent mall, there were not much choices for food. The space at ground floor were small especially when there was a fair on going. Love the library as it was quite new and elegant, with plenty of seats available!

This is an average mall, having some shops and restaurants, ice cream parlors and sale of small items like shoes, curios etc in the mall ground floor hall. I spotted a tall 20 meter high lady. Please see the picture. A description is also given in the attached picture. One visit is recommended.
