Revisit Singapore Part 7: Orchard Road Part 2 (Night Light-up)

オーチャード・ロード 夜 アイキャッチ画像

[Introduction]

I traveled to Singapore in late June for the first time in two years. In addition to famous tourist areas, I went around spots I have never been to before this time. While I have lived in Singapore for a year and half before, I find something new whenever I revisit Singapore. In this article, I will write about a night walk around Orchard Road as part of Day 2.

Night Walk around Orchard Road

Following the previous post, I will take a night walk around Orchard Road.

I started walking from “Wisma Astra”.Singapore Wisma Astra1

Light-up started in the evening, so Orchard Road looked bright more and more.Singapore Wisma Astra2

I came to “ION Orchard”.""

I took lots of photos around “ION Orchard” two years ago (see the related article), but I found I had retouched photos too brightly, so I will retouch pictures modestly this time.Singapore ION Orchard1

“WHEELOCK PLACE”, which was adjacent to “ION Orchard”.Singapore WHEELOCK PLACE1

In the adjacent hotel, there was “CHATTERBOX”, which was famous for chicken rice (see the related article).Singapore Mandarin Gallery2

It was cool, wasn’t it?Singapore Orchard Gateway3

There was a passageway “the tube”.Singapore Orchard Gateway tube1

As you can see, it was a popular photo spot.Singapore Orchard Gateway tube2

Then, I returned to the hotel and the second day of my Singapore trip was over.

[Closing]

That’s it for the article about a night walk around Orchard Road as part of Day 2.

As far as Orchard Road was concerned, I thought the west side from “Paragon” and “Ngee Ann City” to “ION Orchard” was the main area while I had not spent so much time on the east side so far. This time, however, I took night photos at Somerset and found the east area, especially around “Orchard Gateway”, was very attractive. If you have a chance to visit Orchard Road, I recommend you visit the east side as well as the west side 🙂

In the next article, I will write about Sentosa (Madame Tussauds/Merlion etc.) as part of Day 3.
