Shops in a Singapore street

Riverside Shopping

On the northeast fringe of Chinatown you’ll find a wonderful riverside district that's known for its restaurants, bars and nightclubs overlooking the river. What you should also know is that there are some wonderful stores and shopping centres in this area too. They may not be up to the standard of Orchard Street, but you really can’t beat the view over the river as you make your way between stores.

Where the colony of Singapore was first founded, this site now offers views of massive skyscrapers and the large, ornate buildings that are now the big banks of Singapore.

Amid all this you’ll find a number of shopping arcades, malls and centres selling a range of electronics, gourmet food items, eyewear, sports, clothes, music and beauty products. Perhaps the best part of shopping at Riverside is the huge selection of restaurants and bars where you can relax after a hard day of shopping.

Why even leave? There’s plenty of Riverside accommodation with amazing views. With the bars and restaurants as well as the shopping, you won’t need to venture very far from here at all.
