  • Came here to grab some things I forgot to pack for my holiday and found everything I needed at really great prices. Lots of locals here, not many tourists as it is not flashy like the other malls.  more »

  • Here is a Burmese place. But of course local business is here as well...but once a community is born... It usually grows... And here is no difference. So if you are looking for Burmese stuff this is a good place
  • Great place to browse for fashion (many little shops). And a couple of very good Japanese restaurants: Nanbantei at L5 and Sushi Bar at L4. These are some of my favourite restaurants in town.
  • Lost it's hype. But a good place for reasonable and quick bites. Also packed with services. Needs a new lease of life to draw crowd in, as struggling tenants fold from low foot traffic
  • Best place to make your nails and hair. A lot of shops which providing such services. Also has several tailors and alterations shops. Not expensive. But shopping mall is old, don't be surprised by seeing cockroaches.
  • A shadow of its formal glory. Not much for shopping but a good place for food. Quite value for money if you consider that you are taking a meal in orchard area. The nicest food stalls are always the hidden gems located weird corners.

Where to stay in Singapore

For leading chain hotels, head to the area around Orchard Road, considered the tourist center of Singapore due to its varied selection of rooms, good travel links, and tourist-focused businesses. At the eastern end of the road, you'll find more luxurious and expensive options, with hotels located in impressive colonial-era architecture. North and south of this main artery, backpacker hostels and budget hotels provide affordable rooms with basic facilities.
