Holland Village, Singapore
Holland Village is favored by young Singaporians, expatriates and people just looking for something away from the city centre. The only reason i knew of Holland Village wa because of of my girlfriend Nadine, who lived in Singapore for 12 years. She insisted that we visit the area and i am glad we did.
Though we didnt get to sample the food in the area, we did our fair bit of shopping. There is a huge variety of asian craft shops that were great for picking up some cool souvenirs and trinkets.
A great stop if looking to get out of Singapores city centre.
Pure Earth is a nice, but small clothes store in the Holland Village shopping center. They sell lovely handmade Indian style clothes made in Mumbai. They have larger sizes and can make clothes for you (but this takes time). They have nice scarves.
This may not be the most attractive mall, but it has great shops inside. A lot of housewares, such as Lims-a favorite for most visitors. You can find art, clothes, Thai textiles, laquerware-all sorts of things.
There is cafe 211 on the third floor-which is quite good. They have an indoor section and outdoor garden. There are more shops and restaurants around. Check out Jalan Merah Saga, which is behind the POSB bank building (across the street from the Holland Village shopping center).
