Lots of fantastic shopping, from a real mix of local and global brands. The shopping centers all have their own personalities, ranging from Ion's airy, glass-covered luxury to rabbit-warren of independent vendors at Far East Plaza. Whatever you are looking for, you should be able to find it at Orchard. The shopping centers also have numerous underpasses (often mini-shopping centers in their own right), meaning you can get still get your AC fix or shelter from the rain! The area is well connected, with Orchard, Somerset, and Dhoby Ghaut MRT stations linking you to the city and the north of the island and many buses to take you everywhere else.
