Bras Basah Complex, Singapore

2.8
#81 of 139 in Shopping in Singapore
Bras Bash Complex was completed in 1980. In the early 1980s, Bras Basah Complex hosted small-scale Xinyao recitals and performance which were immensely popular and drew large crowds. During its peak, there was an event taking place almost every Saturday at the complex. There were also other arts and culture-related activities such as book fairs and art exhibitions which helped to attract customers.

Bras Bash Complex certainly flourished in its early years. Book collectors, students and bargain hunters looking for second-hand books to save a bit - all of them knew that Bras Basah Complex was the place to go to.

Where to stay in Singapore

For leading chain hotels, head to the area around Orchard Road, considered the tourist center of Singapore due to its varied selection of rooms, good travel links, and tourist-focused businesses. At the eastern end of the road, you'll find more luxurious and expensive options, with hotels located in impressive colonial-era architecture. North and south of this main artery, backpacker hostels and budget hotels provide affordable rooms with basic facilities.
