Part of the landmark development Millenia Singapore, Millennia Walk is a swanky double storey mall that has a range of retail shops, what seems like a gazzillion gourmet coffee shops and a Japanese supermarket.

This mall is home to the Harvey Norman Flagship Store in Singapore where you’ll find the widest range of high- and low-tech home items, from appliances to soft goods, all at competitive prices. If you’re not a fan of haggling over home electronics at places like Sim Lim Square, this store often has pretty good deals on home electronics.

A day or half-day at Tan Boon Liat Building is a rite of passage for new arrivals in Singapore – and for anyone who loves home decor. The lure? It is 15 floors of furnishing stores, ranging from ultra-modern chrome furniture, to cane and rattan furniture for you, to Asian antiques… the options go on and on.
