"As Singapore’s tallest vertical mall, Orchard Central is an exciting and inviting spot to do your shopping. Designed such that glass is a central feature throughout, the mall has a breezy and welcoming feel.

Billed as an experience for the stylish shopper, Orchard Central has everything from fashion to food, including Singapore’s first Mediterranean-style marketplace, which also gives it a clear point of difference from other rival malls. "

Quality Shopping Away From Crowds

A self-paced shopping experience that is unhurried and generally not crowded. Ironically, it could also lead to the mall's demise if business is not supported. Until then... read more

This is one strange shopping mall, one which I have never experienced before in my life. Sure, there is an array of shops and unique boutique brands away from your usual Forever 21 or Esprit. I truly believe whoever designed this mall needs to go back to architect school, because one would require a GPS or at least a paper... More

A self-paced shopping experience that is unhurried and generally not crowded. Ironically, it could also lead to the mall's demise if business is not supported. Until then, well.... its great for leisurely buys, patient browsing, casual window shopping. Well designed and dressed up, stores are eye-candy - balanced variety of merchandise and eateries. A great way to shop.

This is an impressive vertical shopping mall opened 2009 in Orchard Road and offers a wide range of shops and restaurants.It is claimed to be the first and only vertical mall but if you like shopping and high rise buildings try this one.

Orchard Central replaces whatever that used to be here and it's a leap in improvement. This is where Asia's UNIQLO flagship is based. There are other shops, restaurants, cafes, etc. It is apparent that alleyway mall is also becoming an in-thing here in Singapore, and Orchard Central has the bring the outdoor indoor format. Yes, it might be just another... More

Right at the middle of the Orchard road, it's a huge mall with all the global brands available here. The Somerset MRT is accessible right through this mall. Lot of eatery joints. A good place for a relaxing stroll and enjoy the dazzling lights of the evening.

This shopping mall has a weird layout which is pointed out by some of the TA members. A lot of dead ends and isolated shops/eateries within the building as you go up the floors with the escalators. It has a very long escalator that you can take towards the top floor for a good view of the Orchard area. Just... More

I guess their most profitable tenants are F&B outlet, Apple Store and possibly Tokyu Hands It houses some really popular eating places such as Kilo@Pact, Tanuki Raw and Lady M This place can be pretty dead - quiet with underutilized space I hate to say, the worst thing about this mall is its layout. Some of the escalator and lifts... More
