In the 1830s Orchard Road was home to a community of nutmeg growers whose trees shaded the road for travellers. These days the only cultivation done in Orchard Road is of shoppers’ desire for the good things of life. The interesting aspect of Orchard Road is that in spite of its many 21st-century shopping malls, it retains a distinctively Asian flavour.
One popular stop for tourists is Lucky Plaza which has a tremendous range of shops, boutiques, restaurants, bars and nightclubs. In the food court, visitors can choose to sample the inexpensive food that the locals eat, or stick with the more familiar fast food products.
Ngee Ann City is another famous shopping centre in Orchard Road. Here, shoppers can choose expensive name brand products or the cheaper goods in the basement. Anybody who wants to experience the true buzz of Asian daily life should set aside a couple of days of their itinerary to spend in Orchard Road, Singapore. Despite the expensive shopping malls, there are hotels and hostels available to suit every budget.
