Far East Plaza Singapore

Experience One of Singapore's Veteran Emporiums

Singapore has many malls, emporiums and markets to hang out and/or indulge in some retail therapy. One of the earliest malls to appear in Singapore was the Far East Plaza, and is still going strong.

The Far East Plaza is situated on Orchard Road, and opened its doors in 1982 along with a clothing shop that has since closed down. Eventually the mall grew to feature more than 600 shops and various eateries.

Youth Hotspot

Due to the inexpensive nature of the mall, it became a hub for the city’s youth, and eventually the mall capitalised on this reputation. Most of the fashion stores in the mall cater to young folk, and feature colourful, and at times even outrageous, fashion.

Street Food Galore

You find any of Singapore’s elite dining establishments here, although many Clarke Quay hotels in Singapore along the likes of Park Hotel Clarke Quay are nearby. Instead, Far East Plaza has some of the finest street-food you could hope for. Resto Surabaya is famous for its ayam penyet and Su Korean Cuisine is renowned for serving indulgent Korean culinary goodness.

Body Modifications

Since the mall is popular with the young trendsetters of Singapore, there are many places in the mall where you can get piercings or tattoos. These can be found on the upper floors.
