Shopping Malls & Areas

Orchard Road is the place to go for the trendiest shopping in Singapore, where you will be able to find all the biggest malls and famous fashion brands on display. Like most countries, this area has a ton of pretty buildings all displaying the same brands with an LV, Chanel and Prada located in nearly every one of them. Takashimaya, Paragon and the new Orchard ION are the most popular buildings and they are located right in the middle of Orchard Road.

Apart from that belt, most other shopping centres are heartland malls catering to the towns around them. In the place of luxury brands are supermarkets, smaller fashion shops and other businesses. As a tourist there is really no point to visit a heartland mall!
