Yes it is the most busiest but fashionable street of Singapore. Passing time here from walking along the road is good fun and you find number international brands showroom for shopping but it is said that it is the costliest place to shop. The orchard road is well connected by Singapore MRT.

Can be overwhelming so do your research online first. Very repetitious. Lots of high end brands. You get lost and confused very easily as a lot of the malls are linked to one another so in the heat it's not great. As compared to Aussie prices there are no real bargains unless things are on sale

Nice if you're a shopaholic needed a shot. Otherwise, I see no reason going there. Or, during the day that is, because at night you can have a lot of fun at Orchard Towers.

The shopping meca! If you cant find something to buy here then there is something wrong.

Allow plenty of time to visit all the shops. There are some amazing shop window displays. Becareful of some of the cheaper food court types as we suspect one caused some sickness.

In all the shopping we did, only encountered one rude salesperson.
