Changi Airport to Orchard Road, Singapore

Singapore is the quintessential, world-class tourist hub that makes its way into the checklist of all avid travelers. From delicious local cuisine to the finest luxury retail brand, Singapore offers a variety of experiences for holiday makers. Pop culture references have further propelled this city into fame, and the colonial times have left their marks of romance in this otherwise-modern island.

Perhaps one of the best ways to spend a lazy weekend in Singapore is to stroll around Orchard Road, which provides a prestigious locality for grand hotels and luxurious boutiques to set up their establishments. Not only is it minutes’ away from the Fullerton Hotel, the hard-to-miss historical building facing the riverfront, it is also a central starting point for visitors to make their way around Singapore.

A Timeless Haven

The world is filled with fascinating sights, and Singapore, being a compact city-state, continues to inspire visitors with its rich cultural diversity. Intermittently, travellers may find themselves enthralled with the landmarks that tell tales of colonial occupation, but Orchard Road provides a modern edge to the carefully-constructed tapestry that is Singapore’s cityscape, and peaks as the most fashionable districts in its locale.

Retail therapy is very much a tangible concept that manifests within the iconic district of Orchard Road in Singapore. Those with shopping lists to clear (particularly during a session of self-pampering) would find themselves in awe at the expanse of luxurious boutiques and trendy stores that congregate in Orchard Road, a representation that is befitting of Singapore’s status as a world-class holiday spot.

Browse through the latest collection for internationally-regaled luxurious goods, and get your hands on the hard-to-come-by limited editions. A trip to this legendary shopping district would be incomplete without dropping by TANGS, which stands as one of the oldest department stores in Singapore.

Here in TANGS, Asian culture nods at the oriental-inspired decor, which come with striking elements such as the pagoda-style roofing and red columns which invoke nostalgia of a different time.

ION Orchard: The Modern Escapade

Having experienced the Eastern-inspired designs of TANGS, which rightfully remain an icon within the district, youngsters can traverse to ION Orchard for a modern setting.

The ION Orchard dazzles as an impressive shopping complex that houses various flagship stores, with some being fashion favourites such as H&M, Kiehl’s, Sasa and Mango. Retail lovers will delight in the spread of cosmetic boutiques and high-end fashion stores, which feature classic and timeless goods that tempt your wallet! The large complex also features a variety of trendy restaurants that serve up tantalizing cuisines, so keep an empty stomach, a wandering eye, and warm up your palates for gastronomical testimonies!

For those who have tastes that transcend beyond the leather-bound embrace of material goods, perhaps a trip to the art exhibit and gallery on the fourth floor of the modern complex could tickle your fancy. Integrating art and commerce into a singular entity, ION Art Gallery aims to introduce artwork done by international and local artists through the creative use of multimedia. An observation deck hosted in the 55th and 56th floor of the building offers visitors a chance to glimpse the city in panoramic view. It is a mere understatement that ION Orchard is an innovative, integrated space that amalgamates sightseeing with retail therapy.
