Singapore's most well-known shopping district, Orchard Road, is a shopaholic dream come true, with glitzy malls lining this 2.2km road from end to end.

From the world’s most lavish luxury labels such as Chanel, Gucci and Prada to high-street labels such as H&M and Topshop for on-trend apparel and accessories, you name it and you’ll find it here.

Besides shopping, there are also plenty of excellent restaurants, cafes, spas and art galleries here.

Orientate yourself by heading to Ion Sky, the 56-storey-high viewing gallery in Ion Orchard – the unofficial ‘heart’ of the shopping strip – to get a bird’s-eye view of the city state.

When you need a break from all the material luxuries of life, it is time to get close to nature to soothe your soul. Fort Canning Park and the Singapore Botanic Gardens flank either end of Orchard Road, so you’re never too far away from some greenery.

Now that’s why they call Singapore ‘the Garden City’.
