Loved the old buildings, beautiful architecture, more subtle and understated than some of the gaudy and colorful nearby shopping precincts.

A nice area to wander through, just off Orchard Road. Interesting Peranakan buildings, lots of shops, places to eat and drink. Good bit of old culture.

Today is very advanced and a lot has changed the past years. So there is nice to have something that still is the same. It's nice to just walk a round in piece away from the loud areas.

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
