A modern city-state reveals its gems

Orchard Road

Singapore’s entertainment and shopping hub is regularly frequented by locals and tourists.

The street, an endless string of luxury malls, is named for the nutmeg, pepper and fruit orchards that used to lie on either side of the street in the 1800s.

Today, the area contains numerous restaurants and nightclubs. It is also home to the official residence of the President of Singapore, the Istana.
