    Question Overview of Orchard?

    I was wondering does anyone knows anywhere, which is easily accessible, where I can take photos of the overview (million dollar view) or Orchard Road district?

    Thanks.

    Try Chatterbox on top of Meritus Mandarin. They have a nice 360deg view.

    Good idea, but is it open to public at the highest level?

    My understanding there is a viewing platform meant for public. The top floors are carparks....You can try your luck there.....just be careful on the security.

    I don't think Wheelock Place is high enough to capture an overview of Orchard. (million dollar view)

    ********

    Anyone knows how whether Shaw Towers allow public to go up to high floor levels?
    But is there windows at the lift at high floors? (Heard there are tution centres/language centres up there)

    Thanks!

    I remember the cinema floor above ISETAN has a round glass view over that crossing, not sure if you can see Orchard road itself......
