Shopping in Singapore
Although it’s far from being called the ‘cheapest shopping destination’ in Asia, Singapore is still a ‘shopping paradise’ to many people. Whether you’re looking for world-class brands or for cheap china-made products, you can find them on this wonderful island.
This 2km-stretch of shopping centres is the most popular shopping street in Singapore. Although dominated by high-end malls selling branded goods, you can still find bargain products at Lucky Plaza or Far East Plaza.
If you’re looking for Chinese delicacies, Chinese snacks, souvenirs, artwork, jewellery and clothes, be sure to check out Chinatown. The Chinatown Street Market is a good place to start if you don’t have the time to explore the whole Chinatown.
Just like Chinatown, half a day is not even enough for you to cover half of the stores in the area. From electronic shops to jewellery stores, fashion boutiques and Indian restaurants, Little India has almost everything and anything.
Besides the upmarket Bugis Junction and Bugis+ Malls in Bugis, there are hundreds other smaller and cheaper stalls in Bugis Street. They have eateries, fashion stalls, electronic stores and many other shops waiting to take payments from you.
