A refreshing treat just seconds from buzzing, brash Orchard Road. Interesting colonial architecture of Singapore on show in shop houses. A short street but well worth the detour.

Stumbled across this but not worth a special trip if you are short of time. A few very busy bars in the street then just rows of terraced houses with shutters, pleasant to look at but not really a tourist attraction in my book.

The Emerald Hill is one of the hip hangouts off Orchard Road if you fancy having a drink at one of the local pubs. Lots of options, so go bar hopping.

Just back from the noise and glitz of Orchard Road you will find Emerald Hill, a pleasant up-market and historic area of Singapore that is far more pleasant that the tourist trap it is so close to. Along Emerald Hill Road and the surrounding streets...More

This is an incredible area of beautiful historic property, it is exuding high levels of wealth and exclusivity though, but is worth seeing. The bar just of orchard st is great and well worth a visit.

In less than a minute from the bustle of Orchard road, al is a calm old world of Singapore of 100 years ago, well worth a stroll up the road to transport one to another era.

When we first visited Singapore, there were houses like this everywhere, but now they are very rare. Very exclusive residential area due to proximity with Orchard Road, with shops at the bottom in Peranakan place which use to house a museum. There are a few...More

Quaint little street just off Orchard road (between Centrepoint shopping centre and the tourist office). It’s flanked on either side by traditional shophouses, many of them prewar. The shophouses at the base of the hill are used for commercial purposes - a few bars that...More

Orchard Road
Shopping is a national pastime for Singaporeans, and
after a visit to Orchard Road it’s easy to see why.
This seemingly endless boulevard boasts a dizzying
selection of shopping centers. From bargain basement
foragers to designer label big-spenders, there is
something for everyone. For those just browsing, there
are countless restaurants, food courts, and cinemas,
as well as the odd street entertainer to keep you
