Skywatch Friday - Orchard Central Mall - Ride along the escalators

The one thing I like Orchard Central is their escalators. They have escalators facing the main road of Orchard Road - a shopping district.

I am going to ride the long escalators up, it looked quite scary but there's a glass panel protecting us so that we would not fall out while looking at the scenery.
This is the long escalator ride up. The escalator is the same one as the above photo.

Photo taken through the glass panel.

From the escalator, I could see rows and rows of shophouses opposite me. All the shophouses are protected and preserved.

Most of the building along Orchard Road are malls after malls. The whole Orchard Road is a shopping district with malls on both sides. Come christmas, the whole Orchard Road would be decorated with fairy lights and it will be very pretty.

A short video showing my ride up the escalator and my two friends are behind me giggling at

Did I tell you we went on this? I just shopped at Robinsons and then on our way to Joh Little. Only John Little wasn't there any more. We went on these long exterior escalators. I also took a pix of the tall lady. Only I haven't got organised to post my pix.


You fast? LOL

Singapore is a very interesting place.

The escalator looks scary for a person who is afraid of heights. Perhaps the fear factor plus the added bonus of a beautiful view is reason enough to attempt it.

What a way to go - the faster the better to the shopping malls! S'pore astounds with so many 'luxuries'.
