Orchard Road, Somerset & Dhoby Ghaut
With a plethora of shopping options, it might take a whole day to fully cover the entire street. Start at Scotts Road with some grocery shopping at Isetan Japanese Supermarket or watch the latest blockbusters at Shaw House. Stroll down to Orchard Road and pick up luxury goods at ION Orchard and Paragon, or sample local labels at the iconic TANGS. Up your street cred and immerse yourself with the youth culture at Cineleisure or *SCAPE.

Continue down to Somerset and you’ll find flamboyant Peranakan shophouses that line Emerald Hill Road. The quaint stretch offers hip bars and restaurants vis-à-vis shopping malls such as Orchard Central and 313 Somerset.

End the day at Dhoby Ghaut, home to The Istana – the official living quarters for the President of Singapore. The Istana grounds are only open on selected public holidays. However, the Istana Park is accessible every day.

Singapore Botanic Gardens
The country’s first UNESCO Heritage Site, Singapore Botanic Gardens was established in 1859 in which 60 acres of land was transformed into a treasure trove of greenery. Highlights include The National Orchid Garden, which boasts the world’s largest orchid display with over 60,000 plants and orchids.
Dempsey Hill
Explore one of Singapore’s most hip and quaint neighbourhoods, nestled away in lush greenery just minutes from Orchard Road. Formerly a nutmeg plantation in the 1850s, and then repurposed as the military camp that was Tanglin Barracks, Dempsey Hill is now a dining, entertainment and shopping hideaway.
