Go Chill At The Rooftop Garden Of Orchard Central

Guests at Grand Park Orchard will find the place just 2 minutes away if you have booked into the perfect hotel for enjoying the thrills of Orchard Road. Look for a Singapore hotel promotion at Orchard Road hotels to make the most of your stay. If you are located close-by, visit the rooftop garden at night and savour the magic.


Enjoy The Views From ION Orchard

ION Orchard is loved for its fab shopping allures, but did you know the mall offers a viewing gallery on its 55th floor? You must get there before 5.30 pm which is when the last lot of visitors are allowed to the viewing gallery before the mall closes at 6 pm. The views are very impressive, reaching all the way out to Marina Bay Sands and even the Singapore Flyer.


Savour The Quiet At A Charming Library

This is one library that's been made to impress; while being pretty well stocked of course. Head over to The Library@Orchard to discover Singapore's most stylish library; while the place is well supplied with books from many genres, much focus has been on design style and you will certainly be impressed with the modern lines and innovative designs displayed there, together with the literature in stock. Go find yourself the perfect book and settle into one of the cosy nooks provided and unwind after a satisfying day of shopping at Orchard Road.


Enjoy A Stroll In The Park

While being a busy metropolis of skyscrapers, Singapore is also a pretty garden city with plenty of space to get away from the hustle and bustle. Getaway from the city by simply heading out to Bras Basah area of Orchard Road where you can enjoy a relaxing hike inside Fort Canning Park; not as popular as the Botanic Gardens, this park is pretty impressive too, sans the crowds. Dedicated to war memorials the garden is ideal to explore Singapore's past and enjoy some time cocooned within the best of nature.


Take In The Art

The ION Orchard is home to the Opera Gallery one of the country’s most popular art galleries. There you will discover some very impressive work by both famous artisans such as Salvador Dali and Andy Warhol as well as, creative pieces by up and coming artists in Singapore.
