Some people can’t imagine traveling without going on a shopping spree. If you happen to be one of them, Singapore won’t leave you disappointed. From local markets to high-end stores and malls, this city has something in store for everyone, and here are some shopping experiences that you shouldn’t miss during your visit.

The Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands

Marina Bay Sands is Singapore’s most extravagant attraction, and it goes without saying it’s home to a luxury shopping mall. The Shoppes have everything your heart desires, from luxury brands to high street stores, and its architecture is as stunning as it gets.


Surprisingly enough, The Shoppes isn’t Singapore’s largest mall and that title actually belongs to VivoCity. Modern and sleek, this shopping center covers three floors and two basement levels, filled with stores, restaurants, theaters, and even a rooftop amphitheater and an open-air playground.

Orchard Road

If you want to take a break from the malls and do your shopping in one of Singapore’s most bustling streets, Orchard Road is your best bet. The city’s shopping hub is the no. 1 spot for upscale shopping in Singapore, and it offers everything from renowned department stores to fancy cafés and restaurants.
