“Nice little street with lots happening”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2012

Whether you want to eat some street food, drink some coolers, shop for nicknacks or eat some of the local food, Bugis has it all under one roof. Nice for an afternoon out since its covered and offers some respite from the heat

“Great for shopping”

The malls has good selections of boutiques and shops. There is a street called Bugis Street selling very cheap clothes watches bags etc. You can bargain for better price.

“A hidden gem”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2012

This is one of my favourite places to go in Singapore. It's close to Arab Street and other attractions but has a more local feel. I love to wander around Bugis Market and eat at Fatty's Restaurant. There is always lots to see and lots of placed to eat and drink. Definitely worth a walk around

“Street Market”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2012

This was a pretty average street market experience - very crowded and I didn't see anything particularly unique or amazing on offer. While could certainly purchase souvenirs there if you so desired there wasn't anything particularly uniquely Singaporean about this experience - similar to Paddys Market in Sydney, Camden Markets in London or Takeshita Dori in Tokyo..

“Bugis Village arcade ”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2012 via mobile

This a must see covered market adjacent to a modern shopping mall with lots of knick-knacks for sale. I can't say the items for sale here are different from what you might get from other parts of Singapore. Prices are economical S$5 for a Copy watch. Ended up strolling through the market quite quickly as it is actually quite small.
