Orchard Road

20090425 Singapore 104 Orchard Road is a major shopping area in Singapore. It has several large malls all right next to each other, plus stores along the street itself. All the stores are high-end, fancy stores like Louis Vuitton and Burberry, and lots of boutiques.

Purvi and I decided to go down and see what all the fuss is about. Saturday night the stores all stay open until 23:00, so we ate dinner and then went up and down the street window shopping. We stopped at a stall that sold fresh juice. I had a slush with mango and dragon fruit – delicious! We also found a sweet shop. Not at all like what we have in the US! The lady behind the counter was quite helpful. She helped us pick out some things to try. I had a candy made of red bean and sticky rice. I also had a sticky rice and coconut candy. We had a great time walking up and down the street, peaking into the shops and people watching!
