Looking to shop till you drop? Full of shopping malls with designer brands, Orchard Road is the place to be if you want to indulge in some retail therapy.

If it’s working hours and you find yourself strolling along Orchard Road at a leisurely pace, you are living the tai tai life. Orchard Road is our equivalent of Rodeo Drive in Los Angeles or Shinjuku in Tokyo, Japan.

What’s the best way to dive into the malls and get all your retail therapy on full gear? Well, we’re here to help you shop #likeataitai. With the entire shopping belt spanning over 2km, the best place to start would be in the heart of Orchard Road, the junction of ION and Scotts Square.
