Yes..I realised that the Orchard Rd streetscape is very leafy!

The green really stands out, as compared to shopping districts in other cities.

Also, it is quite colourful, no boring greys. Wisma has done a good job updating their streetfront. :)


How many brands can you spot?


Borders 'bookworms'


I'm lovin' it


McCafe


Street Cafe at Wisma Atria

McCafes have never really taken off in the United States.

I guess we have Starbucks to thank for that.

Looks like a great street to create memories in.

Great pics RC!

I have heard so much about Orchard Road and the pics transport one to the place virtually!

It looks so modern, clean and yet bustling with activity.

Will have to visit Singapore some day.

:)

On a side note:

I noticed this store 'Mumbai Se' (from Mumbai)



Apparently it is the first of its kind high end Indian fashion store in Asia (outside India) and opened in August 2004. A second store opened in Dubai's Ibn Batutta Mall last month.

btw anyone knows if the shophouses in orchard emerald are "authentically old"?
I think they are. Theyre the ones at Emerald Place seen in the 4th pic, and behind them is a nice estate of rowhouses at Emerald Hill.
