Did You Know About Orchard Neighbourhood?
Orchard Neighbourhood is known for its Orchard Road, a 2.2-kilometre stretch of road that runs from ION Orchard and Tangs Plaza to Plaza Singapura on one end and ION Orchard and Tangs Plaza on the other. Orchard (NS22), Somerset (NS23), and Dhoby Ghaut (NS24/NE6/CC1) are the three MRT stations that service it. Hotels, serviced apartments, and wonderfully planned malls line both sides of the Boulevard, offering fantastic eateries and nonstop shopping. Because of the abundance of fruit trees in the region in the 1800s, Orchard Road was given that name for Orchard Neighbourhood.
Orchard Public Library
The library at Orchard Neighbourhood serves as both a community place and a meditative with a collection of around 100,000 volumes, specific exhibition sections, and three programme zones. The library, which offers a wide range of programmes and reading options, is focused on lifestyle, design, and the applied arts. The fiction and nonfiction titles, audiovisual materials, and magazines in the library@orchard collection are available. It is easier to find magazines grouped alphabetically and with the covers facing out. The Book Tree is one of the library’s most distinctive features.
Parks & Gardens – Orchard
Istana Park is a prominent feature in front of the Presidential Palace. With an area of 13,000 square metres, you can expect to be wowed by the flower arrangement, which is themed around the year’s holidays and the oasis of light as night falls. A 26-meter-long Festival Arch rises from a rectangular reflecting pool with slow-flowing water as the park’s focal point. Stone benches, open grass areas, picnic facilities, and a playground are all available in the park. Furthermore, the park gives a vantage point for observing the Istana’s monthly changing of guards ritual. The Orchard Fountain Corner is another one not.
Eat from the orchard.
Look no further than ION Orchard’s Basement Four Food Court and Tang Plaza’s basement food court on Orchard Road if you want to experience local dishes in an air-conditioned setting. Wild Honey (expect a line for brunch on weekends), Antoinette (desserts), and Japanese food are all available at the Mandarin Gallery located next to the Mandarin Hotel. Souper Tang (sample the soups and soya bean pudding with brown palm sugar), Din Tai Fung, Chicken Up, and Dapur Penyet are just a few of the mouthwatering dishes available at the newly renovated Centrepoint.
When buying a home on Orchard Road, one is spoiled for choice. Prices are generally costly because you are in the heart of everything and at a prime position – the Central Business District is only 2-4 MRT stops away. Emerald Hill Conservation storehouses are one-of-a-kind quaint colonial structures with lots of history that are often tastefully rebuilt in terms of landed property.
A few landed properties are also available along Jalan Jintan and Jalan Lada Puteh, located on a short hill behind Lucky Plaza. Oxley Road and its environs also have a few landed properties. Those searching for high-end condominiums will be spoiled for choice, as there are far too many to list.
