    Bugis Junction: Flea Market almost........

    There are 2 places one should go shopping if you like to try your bargaining skills. One is right opposite to Bugis Junction shopping plaza. This is a vast market and everything can be bargained here. You need to get off at Bugis MRT to go to this market.
    The other one is a flea market in China Town area. As the name suggests, one need to get off at China Town MRT station.
    Please do look into Singapore Strait Times for Sales adverts as there are always sales in some of the shopping malls. We found looking at the daily newspaper was the best way to get informed.

    Bugis Junction: plenty of choice, not too overwhelming

    We shopped here on our last visit and had to return again. A smaller center with plenty of choice. Local department store, food outlet, shoes shoes shoes, clothing, electronics etc.

    I bought 8 pairs of shoes on this trip and have ended up with lots of teasing, but shoes are so different to the run of th mill stuff I see at home and so much cheaper. I got 2 pairs of leather court shoes for S$120 total- the most expensive buy of the trip. Most averaged about S$40 each.

    Bugis is an easy train ride from most points.

    What to buy: Shoes, as long as your feet are not too big. Mine are size 39 (US womens 8) and i had no problems!

    What to pay: As much as you want too! There are all ranges of markets, we do not do the high end stuff, but there are designer stores everywhere. Plenty of lower end shops as well!

    That makes 4 pairs so far!

    Bugis Junction: Trendy Clothing & Accessories

    by heryanta Written Aug 8, 2007

    Bugis Junction is a large shopping complex with a glass sunroof walkway and retro architecture.

    It is a very popular hang-out place for Singaporean youth. Therefore, it is a really good place to look for trendy clothing and accessories.

    As with most large malls in the country it also offers a lot of variety on food.

    There are also other shops selling electronic products, opticians and stationery but this is the place to go if you are primarily looking for clothes and accessories to buy for your teenage children/nephew/nieces etc.

    Bugis Street: Everything from head to toe...cheap and good

    by beetlebummer Updated Mar 20, 2007

    Bugis Street used to be a red light district in the olden days. Now after a major makeover, it is now converted into a shopping heaven. Bugis Street is the Singapore two-storey mini version of the Chatuchak market in Thailand. You will find everything from nice t-shirts (retro, funk, punk, etc...), caps and shoes too. For those who wants to sample some of the local Chinese food, there is also a food alley at the back. There is a map of the shopping area, should you need help. Heh! I must highlight though that this place is not air-conditioned so come prepared, dress appropriately. Hot! Heh!

    What to buy: For tourist, looking for Singapore souvenirs (like the mini Merlion replica statue and the Singapore slang 'Lah' t-shirts), this place has good buys.

    What to pay: Prices here are relatively cheap. For the ladies, you can get a nice top for S$28. Bargainable. Start with a low price and work it up to your payable price. Don't start buying at the first shop. Walk around and you might just find the same item at a cheaper/bargainable price.

    The main entrance - just across Bugis Junction One of the lanes in Bugis Street The map in the shopping area...hmmm

    Bugis Village is "The largest Street Shopping location in Singapore".

    You can buy souveniers like watches, caps, T-Shirts, music CDs, try out the clothings and fashion apparel and accessories, manicure & pedicure, have a hair cut, purchase some tibits, try out local food at the food court, dine at a cafe, have a taste of durians and fruits, have a tatoo or even pamper yourself at the spa retreats.

    There are over 600 shops and they are opened daily.

    Bugis MRT is just opposite Bugis Village.

    Our fave place. Why??, many nice stuffs, street food and cheaper price. I was quite surprised to find Sex Shop casually located in the middle of bag and fashion shops. Bags and shirts, also girls accessories such as bead necklace are easy to find here. It’s a nice place to buy souvenirs for people back home.

    for shopping, go to...

    by yukisanto Written Apr 11, 2006

    There are numerous shops here. The most popular belt "Orchard Road" houses most of the large departmental stores like Takashimaya, Robinsons, Isetan, CK Tangs etc Quality stuff, but of course, not that cheap, although most are affordable.

    If you want fashion/ alternative stuff, head for Far East Plaza in Orchard Road or Bugis Junction in Bugis. If you're at Bugis, you also should go to the Bugis Village (opp. Bugis Junction), where small clothing shops lined a crowded alley. Good bargains here. A top ranges from S$10-S$25.

    The best time to shop is still the Singapore Sale period in June. Almost everything will be on sale, even the branded stuff.
