About: The Orchard area has three sub-zones; Tanglin, Boulevard and Somerset.

History: Singapore Orchard Road was named after the many nutmegs plantations, fruit orchards and pepper farms that used to line the street in the 1830’s. Takashimaya’s current location used to be a Chinese cemetery.

In the 1840s there were no houses south of Orchard Road. As the city developed and progress inland from the Padang area, plantations along Orchard Road gave way to houses (mainly bungalows) in Scotts and Tanglin Road. Commercial development sprouted up in the area in the early 1900s and it soon became the shopping hub of Singapore.

Place of Interest: Stretching almost 2.5km from Tanglin to the Singapore Istana (President’s residence), Orchard Road Singapore (District 9) is a world-renowned shopping district. Popular Shopping malls include Takashimaya Shopping Centre, Wisma Atria, The Paragon, The Heeren, Centrepoint Shopping Centre, Orchard Plaza, Plaza Singapura and many more


Residential: There are many condominiums available along Orchard Road e.g., Scotts 28 Condominium, Grange Residences and the king of all condominiums here is Admore Park which is highly sought after by expats and Indonesians. Cost of living in this district is extremely high because of its prime location.
