  • If you are watching the pennies or don't want to spend a fortune in Singapore you can't go wrong with heading to this area. Lots of shops with all the tourist junk you can think of, or head up stairs ...  more »
  • A market where you can find everything and after that you find something more. A lot of crap, the prices are not that low. Very crowded and perhaps not the best place to walk around with a tired kid. ...  more »

  • I'd recommend shopping at level 2 onwards. Tenants on level 1 are mainly selling touristy items and souvenirs, and is not air-conditioned. Only level 2 and 3 have air-conditioning. Shopping wise - don't expect too much but there will be surprising finds too. Bargaining is mostly OK — just use your own judgement because some owners are just not up for negotiations.
  • Cheap stuff found here! We really had fun looking around for souvenirs. This is the place of a much wider selection of merchandise. Housing 3 floors of stuff, you'll have a great time looking around until you found something that you really want to buy. Fashion enthusiasts can try and see the clothes sold here. Some escalators are not working so you need to take the stairs instead or the escalator as a stair.
  • This is a shopping paradise for some cheap shopping experience. It houses in huge small shops offering souvenirs, bags, accessories , clothing, swim suits, shoes.... Using a baby stroller would be difficult as the pathway is quite very narrow. The shops at the entrance of the mall offers some cheap cool drinks and in Level 3, there is a small food court.
  • Best place to get cheap stuff. This is a fashion paradise. Nice to see that this place has thrived after so many years.
  • To sum it up, Fashion for less. Bugis Street is one of the most common destination for tourist and locals alike looking for the newest fashion trends. It offers articles for ladies and gents as well as souvenirs for busy tourists. Haggling is sometimes acceptable and the vendors are quite adept in handling tourist queries.

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.
