Shopping in Singapore
When the sweltering outdoor heat gets too much, Singaporeans love ducking inside for a spot of retail therapy and a good dose of air-conditioning. Orchard Rd is the queen of shopping malls: with all the high-street brands, plenty of high-fashion houses, and a few discount outlets thrown into the mix, everyone’s needs (and more often wants) are catered for here. If you prefer your shopping a little less mass-market, head out to local neighbourhoods for independent designers, quirky art galleries, bustling markets, Chinese medicines, Persian carpets and a sari or two.
Enjoy late night shopping any day of the week at The Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands. As one of Singapore’s largest luxury shopping malls, you will find a refreshing mix of international luxury brands and emerging labels in runway and street style.
The Shopping Gallery Hilton Singapore houses some of the most premier luxury and fashion labels of the world. For years it had been the exclusive spot where society comes to be dressed and have their penchant for the finer things in life gratified.
VivoCity is designed by internationally acclaimed Japanese architect Toyo Ito, the man behind the renowned Sendai Mediatheque in Japan, known for his signature-style, which focuses on the utilisation of nature, climate and open spaces.
