Bugis Junction, Singapore
This mall is where they say most of the bargains are. However I found bargains everywhere. Everything here is so much cheaper than in the states, Europe, and Caribbean. Bring your credit cards and charge charge charge.
Just about every train and bus goes here.
What to buy: clothes, furniture, glasses, herbs
What to pay: prices range
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.
- an old building, renovated into a shopping mall
- the open area is roof by glass (or fiber?) roof
- a fun water feature where the children usually play and get wet
- can be reach by mrt
- close to old bugis area
What to buy: everything
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.
this large market runs from the morning till late in the evening and seems to foucs mostly on clothes however food and local crafts are also available. Very crowded with locals!
Don't miss the 'pasar malam' (night market) which stretches from its entrance along Victoria Street facing Bugis Junction to another entrance along Queen Street facing Albert Street.
