Orchard Road is famous among visitors for its many shopping malls with several items that offer value for money. However, Orchard road is not only a shopping paradise. Here are a few other places to look out for while doing your shopping here.
Fort Canning Park
This is a pleasant clump of green just by the side of the road. Feel like escaping the hustle and bustle of the city? Head over here and take a small walk along the many paths and explore the tunnel network called Battle Box just behind the museum.
National Museum of Singapore
Formerly known as the Raffles Library, the National Museum of Singapore is now a national monument. The exhibits are displayed over a space of 18,400 sqm and are truly amazing! This attraction is situated close to many 5-star hotels in Orchard Road Singapore.
Singapore Art Museum
Located just a 10-minute drive away from Grand Park Orchard, this is one of the most visited attractions in the area. The museum not only shelters artwork and paintings but also photography and installation pieces. A café and restaurant are also available here.
Emerald Hill Road
In contrast to the whole façade of Orchard Road, it’s an attractive street where the elite Chinese and Malay descendants used to live. The street appears to be a piece of the past that has been fitted into a tiny corner of a busy urban world. The architecture here is simply amazing.
