Shop till you drop on your Singapore city tour

Singapore tours are not complete if you have not walked the full length of Orchard Road to take in the over 20 shopping malls! Whether you are on “shop till you drop” Singapore trips, or would just like to be a part of the hustle and bustle, especially on the weekend, there’s no doubt that this area is one of the finest shopping destinations in Asia. Orchard Road’s humble beginnings date back to the early 1830s when it was an unnamed road home to fruit orchards, nutmeg plantations and pepper farms. In 1958, the first department store—TANGS—was set up by local merchant C.K. Tang. Orchard Road’s bustling boulevard is now a retail and dining paradise, with over 5,000 establishments offering the ultimate lifestyle experience to tourists and locals alike.
