Question

Hello, my husband and I will be visiting Singapore with our 1 yr old son this coming November. We are staying at Orchard Road for the...

...sake of convenient rather than anything else ( for my son to go back to nap by mid morning and for me to shop just along Orchard road). We only have 2 nights there before moving to sentosa island. I just want to ask what are the shops and eateries that I should not miss while there (along orchard road for quick, affordable and irristable lunches and dinners and snacks) so we don't have to lug our baby along looking for food for too long as they are so many choices. And I plan to do some shopping around the area as well. I am not brand concious but just looking for affordable street fashion apparels for my whole family. Any suggestions? Any sales during that time ( 13 November)?

Dear Gina, there are many nice eateries in Cuppage plaza, opposite Somerset MRT. Cheap and good. If you are staying near Orchard MRT, Far east plaza 4th level also have many nice eateries. You can also find food court in Wisma Atria, Lucky Plaza basement. For shopping, OG, Centrepoint will give good bargains. Far East plaza basement has many boutiques for the young and trendy too. Hope this helps. Enjoy your holiday in Singapore! Cheers,
Serena has given a good response. There is a tourist center (if memory serves well) on Orchard Road where you can obtain more information on shopping and eating. Bargains are everywhere, so it will be a breeze. No worries, you will have plenty of assistance in your pursuit. Welcome to Singapore!
i agree with Serena. Just went to cuppage with my family during the weekend with my family to have dinner. As mentioned, Far East Plaza and Lucky Plaza also have those cheap and nice eatries. Try to avoid Ion food court as that is the most expensive food court in Singaoire. Heeren top level also have a few nice resturants too. Try to avAs for shopping wise, Far East is very popular among the youngsters. OG has alot of nice clothes and shoes for your 1 yr old son. (Just bought a pair of shoes for my girls during the weekend. Now they having 20% on almost all items!) As you walk along the stretch of Orchard, I am sure you are able to find alot of nice place to eat with your son. Just walk around and have fun!
