Reflecting the facets of a ‘lifestyle centre,’ VivoCity is the largest shopping mall in Singapore and one of the bigger malls in Asia. Under its roof is a lengthy list of outlets and high street stores from where Marks & Spencer and Zara can be picked up. Also, the facility’s 15 cinema screens will make you want to catch the latest blockbuster while the open-air playground will surely keep the little ones busy as you mull over which restaurant to stop by for a quick bite.

Stroll through Orchard Road

Merging the brand new with the old is Orchard Road where a wide spectrum of shopping outlets is spread out over 2.2 km. Labelled as the undisputed shopping hub in Singapore, visitors can set foot within the glitz and glamour of Paragon or ION Orchard before making for Lucky Plaza which is a magnet for bargain hunters.

Join the crowds at Bugis Street Market

As Singapore’s largest street market, Bugis Street Market leaves no stone unturned in attracting retail fans with varying tastes. Located under one colossal canvass roof, the Market showcases some 800 stalls from where you may purchase clothes, electronics, postcards, keychains, and whatnot for ridiculously low prices. If you are seeking cosy holiday apartments in Singapore then make sure to opt for Pan Pacific Serviced Suites Beach Road, Singapore, just 1 km from the Bugis Street Market!

Hop across to Haji Lane

A far cry from the Lion City’s mall culture is the hipster haven called Haji Lane. Once here, you will be greeted by scenes of wall paintings that will serve as an outstanding backdrop to inspecting the numerous boutiques and vintage stores that scatter this narrow road.
