From esteemed hotels to reputable shopping malls, Orchard Road has never been as built up as it now is. However, we often walk along its tree-lined streets unaware of the art and stories of yesteryear about this wonderful strip renowned to so many around the world merely for its shopping.
This insider journey brings you back into the past where things began. You begin your journey with a hearty lunch at Orchard Road’s most rockin’ restaurants which has stood the test of time!
Nostalgia then awaits. You get an exclusive Insiders tour of a grande dame hotel which is also a national monument of Singapore and once called the Teutonia Club which hosted countless notables including royalty. Listen to the interesting stories throughout the century from the hotel host and re-energize with a delectable D24 durian ice cream treat. Bring home a little gift from your hosts.
We then visit the last remaining Peranakan houses along Orchard Road hidden just off-street. These incredible statuesque houses now host the most exciting cocktail bars, one of which allows you to throw peanut shells anywhere you wish! You will get signed up to our Origin Journeys’ Insider List where you get access to 1-for-1 deals on the bars you’ve just visited, along with a host of other exciting offerings. Stay on for a drink or more!
