ION Orchard

With its reputation as one of the biggest megamalls in Asia, ION Orchard is a huge tourist attraction in Singapore. The mall is conveniently located on the famous shopping strip of Orchard Road and is directly above the MRT station. Whether you’re looking for unique luxury fashion items from some of the most sought-after high end brands or something as cheap as $2 from Daiso, this 8-storey shopping haven is a must-visit for all shopaholics.

Highlights

  • Luxury and high street brands all under one roof: Expanding four floors under and four floors above the ground, ION houses a mix of brands and boutiques ranging from high-end to mid-range and high street brands. Level 1, 2 and 3 are dedicated to luxury brands such as Gucci, Prada and Dior. However, the price point drops as you descend into the basement floors; here shoppers can find a wider variety of affordable brands like H&M, Zara and Uniqlo.
  • A range of specialized services and exciting deals for tourists: ION is one of the few malls in Singapore that has concierge desks situated throughout the mall to assist their customers. Here tourists can find all the information they need on the latest discounts and offers to enhance their shopping experience. Customers can also get assistance in making reservation at a restaurant or getting taxi service at the concierge desk. Tourists receive a complimentary airport transfer in an exclusive limousine ride upon minimum spending of $5000.
  • Fantastic view of the cityscape from ION sky: Shoppers can spend a relaxing evening 56 stories above the Orchard Road, taking in the breath-taking view of the city through an impressive 360-degree observatory situated above ION Sky. Here you can also indulge in a memorable dining experience at the renowned Salt Bar & Grill owned by celebrity chef Luke Mangan.
