Velocity @ Novena Square:
This extension to the Novena Square Mall is one of the top shopping destinations in Singapore for sporting goods, and one of the only places in the world to offer a shopping centre specifically for sports and outdoor brands. From Adidas to Outdoor Life, sports-loving shoppers are sure to find the equipment they’re looking for here.
One of the most modern and most popular shopping areas near Novena, the Ion Mall in Orchard is known as one of the top shopping destinations in Singapore. An architectural marvel in itself, the store offers some of the best designer clothes alongside more familiar brands – and is also home to the well-known Food Opera food court.
One of the lesser-known shopping malls near Novena, the Square 2 is a shopping centre with more of a local vibe. Separated from the glitz and glamour of Orchard Road’s shopping malls, Square 2 offers an excellent selection of household essential stores; such as Harvey Nicholls, as well as a number of supermarkets and food produce shops. Albeit not one of Singapore’s top shopping attractions, Square 2 has plenty to offer the local resident – and is almost guaranteed to offer better prices than some of the more glamorous malls.
