This road is where its happening at night. The street was well decorated for the Christmas season and was alive all the time. Branded stores, food stalls, entertainers were all seen side-by-side. The colours, the brands and the people made this street come to life at night. Beware, traffic moves very slowly. Visit the Lucky Plaza. Lots of bargains and... More

The main shopping area of SIngapore. Plenty of shops, all very high end and no bargains to be had, Exclusive boutiques. Underground, a plethora of Malls. If you like shopping, you'll have lots of choice but maybe an empty wallet all too soon!

If you need to find something to buy, it is probably in one of the shops on Orchard Road. If you just prefer to people-watch, not annoyed with crowds and would like to soak in the hip and chic side of Singapore, you can just sit on one of the benches, buy Wall's ice cream from the vendor and feed...

Orchard Road just thrives with bustling crowds, going hither and thither, one wonders to where they are going. There are so many shops, so many arcades with so many stores. Department stores of the highest name quality,and not just one of them, but lots in different places. One cannot imagine how they ever make profit, but the thousands of people... More

We went a few days after Christmas, kids were out of school, the crowds were crushing and noisy , not fun, lots of lines for everthing, shopping is over the top with selections and variety . I would go to Harbor Front shopping center for better prices and near equvalent prices. Of course none will beat China town for prices... More

Wish we hadn't bothered. Hot and traffic filled roads polluting the atmosphere, old fashioned and worn out shopping arcades full of shops you can get anywhere in the world these days. Marina Bay Sands is a much better shopping experience. We couldn't wait to get out of there.

This area was once a shopping haven, but now the prices have clearly sky-rocketed, and it has moved increasingly to become a high end shopping strip, but still suffers from the difficulty with being able to cross the road in the main shopping district. On the plus side, the dining options are very good for a lunch whilst shopping.
