Emerald Hill was on my Singapore itinerary, so it was fantastic stumbling upon it in Singapore's thriving shopping district. Perpendicular to Orchard Road, Emerald Hill is a beautifully quaint street perfect for escaping the amazing sensory overload that is Orchard Road shopping. Looking at the...More

Loved the old buildings, beautiful architecture, more subtle and understated than some of the gaudy and colorful nearby shopping precincts.

A nice area to wander through, just off Orchard Road. Interesting Peranakan buildings, lots of shops, places to eat and drink. Good bit of old culture.

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 centres. 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
