  • We visited Bugis market as recommended by few friends. Market was good and had lot of shops selling from bags to all vanity items, garments to undergarments to toys to adult toys.  more »
  • We were hesitant to go to bugis street as we had been to Chinatown, but I am glad we went. The shopping is very different from Chinatown. It is a full on market at Bugis St and the wares are so cheap....  more »
  • Bugis St is predominantly female clothing and predominantly cater for smaller sizes! A lot of other things there too: shoes and novelties etc. Is a very busy crammed place. A good atmosphere though ! ...  more »

  • You will find narrow indoor streets of little market-style retail shops selling mostly youngster's clothing and fashion accessories. There are also street snacks at the front facing shops. Come here to experience the bustling vibe. It gets crowded on the weekends. Take your time and don't visit the place in a rush!
  • Very nice street, near MRT, there's a market nearby Fu Lu Shou Complex which is so cheap that you can buy souvenirs or promotion items before you come back home
  • It's a good place to buy presents and personal stuff! You can find bits and pieces to bring to your family back home; from ref magnets and keychains to shirts and bags, etc. Most items in the malls, you can find it here, too and for a much cheaper price. You'll get your moneys' worth esp. if you know how to haggle! Some shops open at 11am so it's safer to come in the afternoon when all shops are ready. Enjoy your shopping! ;-)
  • Singapore traditional wet market, tourist trap A wet market. A tourist trap. But still a safe place to go. The place and the people survives as traditional shops selling fruits, food, souvenirs and other stuffs typically sold in traditional market, thanks to successful tourism. So many isles to see. Sellers are not so aggressive and rude as in other southeast asian cities. But also, the place was not as exciting as similar places in Asian cities. Do not miss to see Sri Khrisnan temple and Kwam Im Thong Hood Cho Temple, and the pedestrian walk in front of the two temples. Bugis street is bordered by a mall, Bugis Junction, where the MRT station is.
  • Last time I was here with my family. Good place to get Singapore souvenirs. Aircond-ed marketplace, you don't have to worry about the hot weather. Many kinds of products, sold here with a good price. Although I prefer Chinatown, for better price, Bugis Street have larger choices you can find.
