Shops in a Singapore street

Singapore Shopping Precincts

Shopping in Singapore is a great way to explore the different cultures that call this busy port home.

The diversity between each of the shopping precincts makes Singapore unique, from the glamorous designer label boutiques and extensive shopping malls on Orchard Road, to the bustling bazaars of Arab Street and Little India.

You could easily spend days in each individual shopping precinct, but if you want to try and visit them all travelling from destination to destination is made easy with the convenient MRT system.

Orchard Road Shopping

Shopping in Singapore

Orchard Road is probably one of Singapore's most famous streets and is known throughout the world for its spectacular shopping. You'll find designer labels, international chain stores, modern shopping malls that sell everything from electronics to furniture, and some of the most well priced food in all of the city.

One of the great features of this shopping precinct is that Orchard Central operates late night shopping all throughout the week. All stores are open, as well as cafes, restaurants and bars. So you can get your shopping fix after a day of sightseeing.
