Shopping in Orchard Road
Orchard Central Mall
Orchard Central is one of the newest and best shopping centres on Orchard Road, with super-escalators transporting its customers up into the modern building. Boasting the world’s tallest indoor climbing wall, this mall is not just for shopping. However, if you are indeed after a bargain, the 25% ‘discount passport’ available at the concierge is a sure fire way to ensure you can grab a few new items of clothing, accessories and more.
One of the most iconic sights along Orchard Road, the ION mall is easily one of the top shopping destinations in Singapore. Totally futuristic architecture blends with top-name retail outlets in the ION mall, where Singapore’s most glamorous tourists and locals come to browse. The mall combines familiar brand names with the most luxurious designer names – and there are even special toilets for the higher spending customers. The ION mall also hosts regular exhibitions and runway shows, so it is well worth a visit whether you are buying something or not.
Far East Plaza
If you wish to immerse yourself in the local shopping scene, the Far East Plaza offers more history and culture than the other big malls. Attracting a hip crowd with its bespoke pieces and unknown designers, the mall offers more bargains than what might be available in other shopping areas near Orchard Road. Whilst the clothing in the Far East Plaza may be a little on the extravagant side for the average tourist, the Plaza is a great place to pick up discounted bags, jewellery and electronic items.
