5 Must-see landmarks around Orchard Road in Singapore - Full of awe and spectacle!

Singapore is a gorgeous place to visit, and Orchard Road offers plenty of experiences to explore. Let's look at some important places around the area.



Chijmes is a wonderful and beautiful historic building that is right in the middle of Singapore's central business district, and within walking distance to the Bras Basah MRT as well as the City Hall MRT. While having been recently renovated, the building boasts of exceptional architecture. The exterior of the building is beautifully maintained with modern additions that elevate it as a nightlife and dining destination. Notable spots here include Tonzaemon by Ma Maison as well as Dimbulah that's known for its coffee.


Little India

Little India is an immensely popular destination in Singapore, and it is known to be the most colourful area in all of Singapore as well. You'll find the area filled with jewellery stores, gift shops, restaurants, fresh produce stores and a whole plethora of unique and colourful buildings that are absolutely beautiful. No trip to Singapore or even Little India is complete without trying some of the delicious treats available in these shops, where these enticing smells fill the streets. You'll learn a great deal about the local lifestyle and culture by spending a few hours here.


Boat Quay

Many locals and tourists alike recommend a visit to Boat Quay. It is an absolutely relaxing area where you could wind down, have a snack, take a walk or simply just sit and enjoy the view. You'll also find many varieties of restaurants here that offer fresh seafood, Chinese dishes, Indian dishes and even American/British expat bars. Some of these restaurants offer outdoor dining so as to not miss the view. When you're on the lookout for accommodation, make sure to check out a hotel near the Harbourfront to enjoy great views. You'll find plenty of options to choose from, like the Park Hotel Alexandra for example.


Istana Park

Istana Park is an absolutely charming and quaint little park that many locals visit to take a break. It has a large beautiful reflection pool along with a 2 storied café on one end and a sheltered pavilion with picnic tables on the other. You'll also come across a tiny pond that has lotus flowers and turtles as well. The park offers a break from the city with a little escape into nature through its ambience. The short trails, flowers, trees and stone benches all add to this effect creating a highly memorable location. Istana Park is located next to the Dhoby Ghaut MRT station making it relatively easy to find.


The Helix Bridge

Walking along the roads and cities through any country offers a sense of understanding when it comes to its culture and local life, Singapore is no different. The country is incredibly diverse and offers a rich history as well as many modern feats. You'll find buildings ranging from old and vintage all the way to modern and glass housed. The Helix Bridge offers the perfect location to oversee some of this modern Singapore as you walk across the river.
