Shopping in Singapore
Marina Bay area's shopping belt includes a vibrant mix of family-orientated malls and high-end shopping arcades, interlinked seamlessly by Singapore's only underground shopping mall. Start at Raffles City Shopping Centre and make your way through City Link Mall, Suntec City Mall, and Marina Square.
Harbourfront - To check out the latest shopping mall located at Harbourfront, make a trip to VivoCity. This mega mall boasts a good mix of retail, entertainment and lifestyle shops, including a 15-screen multiplex making it the largest cinema hall in Singapore.
Orchard Road - Named after the plantations that lined it in the 1840s, Orchard Road is known for its retail options and high-class hotels. Rest assured that you will almost always head home with a few shopping bags in hand. You'll find high street labels like Topshop and FCUK. It is also the domain of Singapore's elite, who are lured by the shopping centres, nightspots, restaurants, bars and lounges. A showcase for the material delights of capitalism, Orchard Rd also possesses some sights of cultural interest where a credit card is not required. For more information drop by Singapore Tourism's Board's (STB) Singapore Visitor's Centre at Orchard Road (junction of Cairnhill Road and Orchard Road, 1800-736-2000) open daily 9.30am-10.30pm.
