Named for the nutmeg orchards that once marked the area, Angsana trees and shopping malls line the iconic Orchard Road today, the ION Orchard, a standout amongst them. Its signature glass facade, a neon-lit digital canvas, is the gateway to more than 66,000 square meters (710,418 square feet) of retail space. Head to the observation deck, ION Sky, on the 55th and 56th floors, for panoramic views of the city, or dine on one of the moored boats turned floating eateries at Singapore River’s Clarke Quay.
