Singapore (3/14)

The craziest shopping culture in the world by far has to be Singapore, the home of 24/7 malls. Singapore’s famous Orchard Road is home to some 40 large full-size shopping malls with more than 5,000 stores inside. It’s like the famous Las Vegas Strip but instead having one hotel-casino next to another next to another, you have multi-story shopping malls.

I went there in June and was thoroughly amused at how the entire underground metro system is lined with stores. Many of the metro stops are built under shopping malls. The ground floor of every major hotel is full of stores.
