    Imagine one shopping where, instead of clothes, shoes, bags or cosmetics, you only have computers and accessories.

    Good! Imagine that, everywhere, large screens show you a soccer game. That’s the final revenge of men. We saw the Paradise in Singapore.

    And... Believe me! All Singapore was wathching... Portugal playing with Argentina (a draw!)

    If you are into well known brand like Prada, Louis Vuitton, Dior, Chanel, Cartier Orchard Road is for you. It is a long street about 2.2 km filled with shopping complexes. It’s not only the hub for shopping there are also hotels, food court, restaurants, cafes, bars and entertainment centre. I found its enjoyable just to look around and mingling amongst the crowd.

    This can be quite a bit of fun. During the day many companies host open-air promotions to help sell their products and services. Pictured here are the semi-naked models promoting a furniture store. On the same day I took the first photo I stood near a temporary stage watching a band sign autographs and selling their new album. Not far away I came across a temporary pavilion promoting health and beauty products. They did this by giving free samples, make-over’s and had some athlete exercising on a bike. The promotions change in terms of days, companies and format. They are also absolutely brilliantly done and really highlight the ingenuity, creativity and industry of Singaporeans. More than a blatant sales come on, this is a real slice of Singapore culture. Come on down and stand around. The shows should be starting soon!

    Just take a look at the walkers and shoppers on Orchard Road on Easter Sunday. Photo taken near CK Tang's and Marriott Hotel heading towards the Lucky Plaza for an early morning breakfast in the basement where the foodcourt is located.
    Get a laksa or a fishball noodle soup in one of the stalls and despite the queue, its well worth a visit (see second photo.)

    Orchard Road was named for the orchards or plantations that the road formerly led to.

    Orchard Road is a major tourist attraction and being the most popular shopping centre and entertainment hub of Singapore.

    My cousin Gerard drive us all for sightseeing, Orchard Road is so beautiful at night and so crowded with people and a lot of food to eat too. I didn't stop here, just enjoyed the joyride.

    A walk in shopping heaven

    Singapore is famous for it's shopping. And the shopping is famous for Orchard Road. There are other shopping areas in Singapore. There are even better ones. But none is as famous as Orchard Road.

    The street goes straight over Singapore city center, and last time I checked there were 19 shopping malls on it. 19. That. Is. And then all the normal shops aren't counted.
    So no need to be scared to not find what you're looking for. Rather then be scared you'll also find all the things you weren't looking for.

    It's high status to have your shop on Orchard Road, so the rent is high, which unfortunately also make the prices quite high. You can definitely find things cheaper in other places. But at Orchard Road you'll find all the status brands, so if you're looking for luxury, this is the place.

    The street is crowded, both by cars and walking people, and worst of all it's during Christmas. The decorations then are for sure something special, and it's a rather weird feeling seeing thousands of christmas decorations when it's 35 degrees Celcius. Maybe even more for a guy like me, who is used to minus degrees and snow everytime someone even mention christmas...

    Orchard Road is so much more than shopping though. It's filled with buildings in different architect stiles, every one cooler than the next one. Here are also loads of luxury restaurants a 5 star hotels.

    Luxury Shopping In Singapore!

    Maybe I should Place my Tip into the Tourist Trap Section hehe because this place is the most expensive place to shop in Singapore. On A Revisit, I have seen that much has changed in orchard Road for the Better. If Hong Kong has Nathan Road and New York has Fifth Avenue, Singapore has Orchard Road. Orchard Road is named after the nutmeg orchards that used to line it in the 1830s, one of them coincidentally belonging to a Mr Orchard. The central shopping area is concentrated on Orchard Road. It rivals all other areas in terms of sheer volume, quality, and choice. Many of its shopping centers are filled with a variety of products from around the world. Most malls carry the concept of "everything under one roof" mentality (catering to all economic markets) Virtually everything that is desired can be found in these shopping centers. For Sheer luxury, try the Ngee Ann City/Takashimaya Shopping Centre and Paragon Mall! (I've never said that I am a budget tourist).

    Colourful Orchard Road is a pretty interesting place to meet up with friends, have dinner with them, coffee afterwards, and take photos. A friend has just arrived in Singapore and we decided to meet up with her in Orchard. Some of the establishments are still closed in celebration of the Lunar New Year but then the place is being geared up for Chingay or the Parade of Dreams. This means the Orchard stretch is now bright and colourful and ideal for picture-taking, especially if you're the type of person that wants to capture every corner of a beautiful city.

    Orchard Road is named after the orchards that covered the area up to the 19th century. Today the area is a showcase for shopping. Here you'll find rows of modern shopping centres as well as international hotels, restaurants & bars.

    Last Christmas, I really enjoyed walking along the Orchard Road. The Christmas Spirit was very alive. The streets were filled with Giant christmas trees and glitters of the christmas lights, colorful decorations from Sta Claus and the reindeirs, from Mr. Snowman to classy christmas balls. I would really like to go back to Singapore to bring my sons for him to witness a true christmas atmosphere...

    Live Shows along Orchard Road

    It is very nice to stroll along Orchard Road especially during the Christmas holiday season where the street and buildings are beautifully decorated with lights and decors. Christmas trees are also aplenty along the walkways. Another added bonus is you can enjoy live show performances along the sidewalk. A very lively and glittering place indeed!
