The MRT series – Orchard (NS22)

Is it really that famous? Orchard road shopping belt that is. You tell us. Back in the 1980s when we were teens, none of what you see today was remotely there… And Tangs (where the Marriot Hotel is) was a 6 storey shopping building… Now you can have free rooftop views here too. And at every major festive event the street gets a light up.

Does it need a revitalizing as we debated here? Perhaps an evolution is more the order of the day. Because the retail scene has definitely changed with online shopping and the rise of the suburban malls. What do you think is missing on this stretch of road?

    1. Oh yeah, but then it is not free! We will have to check though if it is still free. Thought they had already made it a must to redeem tickets after spending money in the shopping mall!


  1. I haven’t visited Singapore properly since the 1980s. Back then, Orchard Road made our jaws drop there was so much shopping to be had, and we’d return to Australia with suitcases bulging!
