If you are hell bent on shopping, this probably isn't something you'll notice. An old street of colourful and restred houses, some now housing small businesses. Good ohoto stop but I wouldn't go out of the way to get there.

Adjacent to Orchard Road near the Centrepoint Shopping Mall... Nice place to see old peranakan houses and to catch a drinks along the way.

A refreshing treat just seconds from buzzing, brash Orchard Road. Interesting colonial architecture of Singapore on show in shop houses. A short street but well worth the detour.

Stumbled across this but not worth a special trip if you are short of time. A few very busy bars in the street then just rows of terraced houses with shutters, pleasant to look at but not really a tourist attraction in my book.

The Emerald Hill is one of the hip hangouts off Orchard Road if you fancy having a drink at one of the local pubs. Lots of options, so go bar hopping.

Just back from the noise and glitz of Orchard Road you will find Emerald Hill, a pleasant up-market and historic area of Singapore that is far more pleasant that the tourist trap it is so close to. Along Emerald Hill Road and the surrounding streets...More

We did an open house art tour in this lovely little neighbourhood here. Amazing that sich gorgeous heritage houses still exist just around the corner from my pet hate (loud, overpriced, gaudy Orchard Road). The houses here are all restored Peranakan shophouses. Whilst you will...More

This is an incredible area of beautiful historic property, it is exuding high levels of wealth and exclusivity though, but is worth seeing. The bar just of orchard st is great and well worth a visit.

In less than a minute from the bustle of Orchard road, al is a calm old world of Singapore of 100 years ago, well worth a stroll up the road to transport one to another era.

Orchard Road
Shopping is a national pastime for Singaporeans, and
after a visit to Orchard Road it’s easy to see why.
This seemingly endless boulevard boasts a dizzying
selection of shopping centres. From bargain basement
foragers to designer label big-spenders, there is
something for everyone. For those just browsing, there
are countless restaurants, food courts, and cinemas,
as well as the odd street entertainer to keep you
