I make frequent trips to Ngee Ann City, but only to visit a specific stall, Kinokuniya. Hence, this review may not fully capture the essence of what Ngee Ann City has to offer.

From the exterior, Ngee Ann City is indeed imposing, its majestic facade can be seen easily once you alight from Somerset MRT or choose to walk down from Orchard MRT. The main attraction would be the famous Takashimaya, where crowds flock to get everything under the sun, from toys to clothes to perfumes to shoes. There are also quite a lot of eating spots in the mall, and a French bakery near Kinokoniya which sells fabulous bread. However, the best thing would be Kinokuniya itself. Home to the richest collection of books in Singapore, this place is really worth visiting. More rare editions of manga and comics (Doraemon) which I would never think be found were procured here. Moreover, the selection of books (non-fiction) is great as they offer a variety of well-written works by respectable researchers. The fiction section is huge too, with virtually all the most recent top-sellers and classics available.

However, if you choose to tour the mall for a whole afternoon, there is a lot more to see. For instance, a lego stall, where you can marvel at your favourite kid past-time and other clothing and food outlets.

Definitely one of the places worth a visit in town!
