  • It is a multitenant mall where a small private shop with a sense of unification that tends to be in old Singapore. I think that the building of such a shape is gradually decreasing from orchard.

  • Unfortunately many shops are closed. Only altering shops and some small eating outlets are there. The chicken rice shop still there with the reasonable price and fast service. There are a few fruits stalls with fresh fruits and prices are reasonable.
  • Old shopping mall. Many beauty salons. But you can find a few interesting shops there.
  • One of the most iconic shopping malls in the 90s.. Now, it looks like they're struggling.. being situated further than the bigger malls like Ion and 313.. All the best FEP!
  • Shops are catered towards the Indonesian domestic worker crowds that masses here every sunday. Nothing much for tourists or locals except a few restaurants that serve delicious Indonesian cuisine
  • Far East square changes a lot for the past many years. It is now slowly evolved into a place that you can find good food. Most people visit the place because of food. Saloon and fashion retailers not doing as well as before. Couple of iconic shops retained but not sure if they are doing well.
