Consistently ranked as the most famous shopping street in Singapore, Orchard Road is a swanky retail and entertainment hub that spans along the boulevard all the way down to the Somerset district. Some of these malls include Paragon, Takashimaya, 313@Somerset and Cineleisure Orchard. Two blocks of office are located above the retail stores in Ngee Ann City, where road shows and performances are often held at the Civic Plaza. Prestigious clubs such as the American Club and Tanglin Club are just a stone’s throw away, providing an exclusive sanctuary away from the hustle and bustle of the city. With many apartments sprawled around the neighborhood, Skypark @ Somerset, Spring Grove, Hamilton Scotts @ Orchard, Scotts Square and The Metz provide plenty of room for everyone in this city center. Potential educational institutions for expatriates include ISS International School and Overseas Family School.
