The Splendour of Orchard Road Jan 14, 2012
It is been quite a while I wrote something favourite about a particular place. I have been the one who admires the fatal flaws of something, be it a place or person or roughly anything. However to admire beauty to me, is forbidden. Aha. Every place has its own charms and when it comes Orchard Road in Singapore,it has a charm that attracts a lot of people Worldwide! The atmosphere and the grand feeling of walking through the busy streets admiring its high rise buildings is pretty amazing. Orchard Road as it is known, is a World famous area and street known for its grand and magnificent display of lights the lid up the roads during the Magical Christmas. Known for one of the busiest shopping places in Singapore or a paradise I would say, I often see it as the ''Little New York" in Singapore. It has a long walkway at the side of a road where you get to see the shopping centers and the Hotels that surround it to give a beautiful urban landscape. It is also quite a place where you will be able to check some of the expensive clothing and merchandises in Singapore. By afternoon, the place is mildly crowded with the commuters and busy workers and office elites of various nationalities making their way to grab a coffee. By evening or Night the place becomes a real deal of Las Vegas. You will get to admire the amazing skyline and as well as hear the soothing jazz music that plays from a distant. Various food cuisines such as Japanese or Western and Indian can be found in Orchard Road to delight your tastes. The sight of glittering lights that hangs along the contours of the buildings and as various neon lights that shines with a hustling busy traffic, Orchard Road becomes a fast paced place. However, it is not until Christmas that you get to see the real Orchard Road. As part of Christmas Celebrations, Orchard Road puts up its amazing display of lights and it is this that captures any travellers in the forefront. A couple of Large Christmas trees will be decorated and erected in front of buildings where you can probably snap a picture. People along the streets will be ushering and giving out free goodies which can be quite cute..as they will be either in their bulky Santa Claus costumes..Throughout the night, there will be various Christmas performances and many people will stay up till late at night. One time I remember I got caught in the crowd and I missed my last bus!! I was stuck till early in the morning! well I suppose, people have to be careful in crowded places. As for safety, Orchard Road is amazingly a safe place although you need to be practice precautions at night. Orchard Road is also a place for some discreet adult business. In terms of expense, you will find expensive and costly merchandises where if you have deeper pockets, you will probably want to spend some and afford the Louis Vuitton Bag. I once bought an expensive Jacket which cost about US95 dollars. But the thing is, you will enjoy buying in Orchard as it leaves you wanting more. So if you do not mind this all, you will probably enjoy Orchard Road as it is:) They say Christmas isn't Christmas without Snow! But Orchard Road still has the charm to capture the Christmas atmosphere without the need for snow! As a tourist, this place is a definite hot-spot ..oh wait..cool-spot:P
