our hotel the holiday inn is along orchard road so we enjoyed our leisurely walks here, they were putting up the xmas trees when we were there and it was nice to feel the early xmas rush everytime we walk towards the sommerset train station. we were travelling on a budget so we enjoyed the window shopping..

When visitors come to Singapore, they know why this little island state is known as a shopping paradise when they visit Orchard Road. On a stretch of 3 km or less lies the shiniest, most glamorous and most expensive stores in the whole nation. All the big international brands are located on the best stretch of Orchard Road. There are excellent restaurants to be found as well. Salt is located at top floor of Ion Orchard, from this vantage point you have an excellent view of the city. Ask for a window table, away from the sky light, unless you like to wear a sun hat and sunglasses indoors.
If you're looking for a food court, you can find an excellent one at Wisma Atria. The basement in Takashimaya is a great place to visit for food, bakeries, cafes everything under one roof.
Tangs is 80 years old and the oldest department store in Singapore. Go there for for the best cosmetics floor in Singapore.
Mandating Gallery and Ion Orchard are new additions to the shopping scene. Paragon has anew wing and is still fairly cosy. Ngee Ann City seems to have all the biggest international brands under one roof.

Shoppers for 'fine' things, this is your place to shop. The food courts are nice but, expensive, as compared to places like Bugis or Lavander.

Orchard Road is just a very long,busy and overrated shopping destination.We in Australia and in many other large cities, already have the same brands,the same shops and even the same eateries you find there,we visited on a Saturday and it was crazy,mainly it was packed with locals and foreign workers,many of them mailing money home.We entered one of the malls and the stairs were clogged with shoppers (the lifts were not working) you could count on one hand the people that were actually walking with their head looking forward,90 per cent were texting...very unpleasant and almost unsafe
