What was once a simple road leading to various plantations of fruit, nutmeg, and pepper, Singapore’s Orchard Road has since become Asia’s top shopping destination.
An iconic road which cuts through the very heart of the city, visitors can take full advantage of its central location and proximity to everything there is to see and do in the world’s greenest city. So for those who care about location, Orchard Road is where you’ll want to stay.

The Ion Orchard shopping complex is a piece of art in its own right, and offers some the world’s most iconic and luxurious of stores including Louis Vuitton, Prada, Armani, Cartier, and YSL. It even offers exclusive bathrooms set aside for celebrities and big spenders. Needless to say we stuck to using our Marriott bathroom, which was likely just as glamorous anyway!
As incredible as Ion Orchard was to browse, we chose to make Orchard Central our spot to actually spend money as it was more representative of our status. Offering the World’s largest indoor climbing wall and brands like Quicksilver and Levi’s, this newcomer of shopping malls will prove to be a tourist favorite in the years to come. Be sure to pick up a Orchard Central discount passport for further savings on brands.
Head to Far East Plaza to snag a bargain at one of over 800 outlet stores or for the younger travel wanting some excitement head to Somerset Mall which offers more affordable brands and live music and fashion launches.
Trying to list all the attractions Singapore has to offer would be impossible as it seems each year brings about more and more. Rest assured though that situating yourself on Orchard Road offers easy access to everything across the city.
Of course the 100+ hectare Gardens By the Bay with its impressive nighttime light and sound displays is on top of the must see list. The gardens Supertree Grove looks like something out of a futuristic scifi movie.
Check out the impressive views from Marina Bay Sands Skypark, or head for some exhilarating fun at Sentosa where you’ll find Universal Studios theme park, a large man made beach, golf courses, and opportunity to take a selfie in front of the giant 120 foot Merlion statue.
Head to Chinatown or Arab Street for some culture and experience incredible temples and mosques. Stepping inside the Masjid Sultan Islamic Mosque was a rewarding experience as was simply walking the streets to witness architecture and surroundings that will fill your cameras memory card in a hurry.
Nature & Wildlife
If Nature and Wildlife is your idea of fun, you can easily catch the MRT and head up to MacRitchie Nature Trail. You will be transported into a different world as you walk among wild macaques, monitor lizards, colugos, owls, pitcher plants, and more.
Although Singapore offers incredible zoological gardens and experiences like Night Safari, we preferred the much less crowded and naturally wild hiking MacRitchie provided us with.
Singapore offers attractions suitable for the wealthiest and glamorous of travelers to the nature eco minded traveler. Adventure, incredible cuisine, limitless shopping, and an all around incredibly clean and green city awaits you. At the heart of it all is Marriott Tang Plaza, allowing you to capture as much as possible of what Singapore has in store.
