It is the main road in singapore! Thousands of shops in really big shopping centers where you can find everything, supermarkets, restaurants, fast-food and all you need to buy!
The best is enjoying the air-conditioning in the stores because outside it is really hot and humid (at least for temperates region inhabitants).
Orchard road is really the place for people who want to get a feeling of what is life in Singapore like. Take a wlak and you will notice the latest fashion goods from well-known brands like Loius Vuitton to Zara as well as the coolest gadgets and mobile phones.
But the main thing is this stretch of road has fascinating sights and offers something for everyone. You can get everything here and even catch a movie or two. You may also just take a break and have an ice cream cone while taking a look at the people walking around this road. There are businessmen going about in their work, college students hanging around with friends. housewifes doing their shopping and fellow tourists on sightseeing.
Great place you can never miss when in Singapore!
Giant main road in the city , with skyscrapers and cafes on either side , best bet is to investigate the claustrophobic little shopping centres on either side where you can buy anything ( apart from chewing gum and pornography ).
Orchard Road is the epicenter of shopping in a country know for its shopping. This translates into being able to purchase whatever you heart desires. From tailor-made suits and women's clothing, to electronics, to souvenirs, Orchard Road has it all. The prices here tend to be a little higher than in other parts of the city, I found. But, with everything concentrated to one road, shopping life is made for convienence in this area. Electronics had the overall best value, as compared to when shopping in the States.
This activity is has been done by women's, but eventually shopping has becoming a new outdoor activity for men as well.
