Orchard Road

Orchard Road is one of Singapore's main throughfares.
It is a busy street where you find a strip of shopping arcades, stalls and department stores.
We came over at rush time, around 4 p.m. and many of Singapore's executive workforce stroll along along the wide sidewalks and fill the malls.
There is an MRT station at Orchard so it is very accessible, not to mantion the different buses that pass by to drop and pick up passengers.
True, Singapore is a place many come to shop.
Be ready with the cash though, as the items at Orchard are not cheap.
The signature stalls abound in this main strip.
At Wisma Atria, the shops are those you find in malls in Manila. But I was told the Singaqpore branches have a lot more available items.
If you visit Singapore, Orchard Road is a place one shouldn't miss, if only to witness the vibrance of the shopping spirit of the place.
