Newest and best shopping mall in SIN?

Which shopping mall is the newest, biggest, bestest and most modern shopping mall in SIN please? I'm not into these malls myself - I'm asking on behalf of one of our family who is a shopaholic and delights in "retail theatre" and she hasn't visited SIN for twenty years. Thanks.

Newest major mall is 313 Somerset or Ion, both on Orchard Road. Largest by retail space in Jurong point, largest by total area is Vivio City. Best?- well it depends on what your after. For example if you want deparmental shopping, that would be Nee Ann City Shopping centre (think Selfridges).

For the shopaholic, I would recommend ION Orchard. This mall sits right above the Orchard MRT stn. Connected to Wheelock Place, Shaw House, Tangs, Wisma Atria and Takashimaya Ngee Ann City.

ION has River Island, Bershka, Pull and Bear, Zara, Uniqlo, Daiso "$2 per item Store", Paul Frank store, Top Shop, Top Man, Neu Look, etc. Wheelock Place has M&S and Borders. But with the weak £ and €, it is actually cheaper to shop in UK and Europe. A friend of mine now frequently shops at ASOS.com. It is cheaper to get from UK than at the retails stores here.

Shopping Mall?

How about just simply 'Orchard Road'

You will come across all the shopping malls on that one street

''You will come across all the shopping malls on that one street''

''All'' ? I get your driffed....................but...........

Vivo City and Sun-Tec City aren't on ''Orchard'', and they're massive malls.

Yes of course there are other shopping malls than 'Orchard Road'

But they tend to have the same stuff as all the Malls on Orchard Road

You forgot to also mention Raffles City - which is connected to Suntec and Marina Square.

Gerry the traveller - you can also tell your shopping companion to go to Raffles City - from there, you are linked to Marina Square, Suntec, Millenia Walk etc. ANd while there rest a while at the Raffles Hotel for a Singapore Sling.

If you not after higher end gear, some of the suburban ones are especillaly large, like Jurong point and the collection of Malls at Tampinese - all right next to MRT station too. You can also finst outlet type stores in them selling end of line and last seasons stuff at a discount.
