Don't get me wrong, I know Orchard Road is a world renown shopping center but its massive and if you're in Singapore for only a few days, I would recommend finding out first what part of Orchard Rd you should visit, rather than just wondering aimlessly through 100's of malls.

The things available for sales as well as the variety is beyond words. Though one can expect things to be pricey here

Took two hours to cross the road, gave up in the end and walked one end to the other to get to cross the road by the lights.

Avoid weekend if not necessary. Use underpasses to avoid heat. Famous uncle ice cream sandwich located on the road (around takashimaya) and you can easily find street performer.

Endless shopping options with many underground. Several centres with a different focus - seek local advice to determine which will best meet your needs. Too many to list!

Right now the street is full of Christmas decorations! Each centre has its own and there is competition. This is not the place for bargains. Stores with Christmas decorations for sale includes Robinsons (only their Orchard Road store), Crate and Barrel, Metro Mall, Tangs. Marks and spencer does not have any decorations for sale even thought it is an English... More

This place is for you. Amazing malls, top-tier shops, and great food all surround the premier shopping street in SE Asia. I prefer the more natural elements of Singapore (botanic gardens, etc.) but Orchard road is a must visit....
