This small street is lined with colorful shop houses with great photo opportunities. It intersects Orchard Street and is an interesting detour if you are in the vicinity. Not a must see but it is worth your time to take a quick look.

Wow! Just off Orchard Road with its modern skyscrapers is Emerald Hill. This is a short street of old shop houses that have retained their external character but have been internally renovated to provide up-market living. It is a quiet street, and not a steep...More

Singapore is a shopping mall but this area shows a past of the city and is a lot more calm compare to the rest of the city. Its like small suburb.

Beautiful houses just off orchard road. I probably wouldn’t come here especially but it’s a nice contrast from Orchard road.

Emerald Hill is a little precinct off Orchard Road. A pretty street lined with terrace houses, restaurants and bars. Take some time out and savour a relaxed drink outside on a patio, eat tapas or a meal and watch the passers by and look at...More

If you are hell bent on shopping, this probably isn't something you'll notice. An old street of colourful and restred houses, some now housing small businesses. Good ohoto stop but I wouldn't go out of the way to get there.

Adjacent to Orchard Road near the Centrepoint Shopping Mall... Nice place to see old peranakan houses and to catch a drinks along the way.

A refreshing treat just seconds from buzzing, brash Orchard Road. Interesting colonial architecture of Singapore on show in shop houses. A short street but well worth the detour.

Stumbled across this but not worth a special trip if you are short of time. A few very busy bars in the street then just rows of terraced houses with shutters, pleasant to look at but not really a tourist attraction in my book.

Orchard Road
Shopping is a national pastime for Singaporeans, and
after a visit to Orchard Road it’s easy to see why.
This seemingly endless boulevard boasts a dizzying
selection of shopping centres. From bargain basement
foragers to designer label big-spenders, there is
something for everyone. For those just browsing, there
are countless restaurants, food courts, and cinemas,
as well as the odd street entertainer to keep you
