Rising directly above Orchard MRT station, futuristic ION is the cream of Orchard Rd malls. Basement floors focus on mere-mortal high-street labels like Zara and Uniqlo, while upper-floor tenants read like the index of Vogue. Dining options range from food-court bites to posher nosh, and the attached 56-storey tower offers a top-floor viewing gallery, ION Sky.
