“Orchard road”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 20, 2013

Just another shopping strip.very clean and plenty of high end shops. if you miss it do not worry. If it wasn't for the history (W.W.2) you would not even rate it as a vist site. This is a personal reflection on the road, I personally do not go overseas to shop. So if you are not a shopper, you have not misse much

“Endless materialism in the most sanitized venue”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 14, 2013

Not much into shopping so I sat in a local drinking establishment while my wife and daughter enjoyed themselves. Not sure who spent more, me with $15 Tigers or the girls with bags of goodies I dared not look at the receipts. Lots of energy on the street and in the stores and in the bars and cafes. A little something for everyone.

“One day is NOT enough for Shopping here !”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 13, 2013

Tons of department stores on this street... both sides. Enjoy shopping for your favorite things eg. street-wear, luxury products, brand name, sports wear, food, books, toys and much more. All department stores have food court to stop by for eating & relaxing.

“Seemingly endless parade of upmarket designer shops - but impressive nonetheless.....”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 12, 2013

This is possibly the most impressive shopping streets I can remember visiting. It certainly knocks the likes of Oxford Street into a cocked hat. An endless parade of very upmarket shops - Jewelers, clothing etc etc as well as other more normal outlets such as Marks and Spencers and endless Malls with all manner of outlets in them.
We visited at night and it is a very impressive sight.
They do play a typical trick - to get across a road you have to use the underpass - which forms part of a mall - and it's never properly signposted so one gets disorientated and and up traipsing around the Mall which is v frustrating.
Plenty of places to stop and eat.
When a shop like Louis Vuitton & Giorgio Armani start to become commonplace they start to lose that "Special" status and after 30 mins or so we began to tire of the endless parade of "exclusive" upmarket outlets - but people who like shopping will love this !

“Endless shopping day or night in a very busy city that does north sleep”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 11, 2013

Luckily, my hotel allows me to walk down this endless mall location via bridge, tunnel basement via excavator down or to cross the street to the lucky plaza where bargain souvenirs or exchange money's at a bargain basement. Of coupes em Chinatown can also have a varied souvenir hunting and foods to the hawker center site where locals cans still enjoy the best of the best foods at a bargain. The ion mall beehives look can be had day or night and closed at 1030 pm for my daily satay fixed at level 4 B decisions. Decisions for tons of food choices longing for more as each night approach providing one is on foot and does not venture well into the night going solo, however I din make note options for 24/7 places that are open and Lebanese option can also be had in seemingly endless shopping to include Isetan which is a japanese brand of the huge mall.
Shop till you drop, literary,
