If you are looking for window shopping in Singapore, this is a place to be at. When you explore places in Singapore, you get amused at the varieties of options that Singapore has for you, when it comes to shopping. You find the costliest and classiest shops at orchard road in Singapore and just the next street in Bugis street, you will find the pirated version of original being sold at one tenth of original price, haha!

Even if you are not into pirated or cheap stuffs, do make sure you visit bugis street for the ambience and vibes it offers. I ended buying all my sovenirs from this spot.

My suggestion of visiting Singapore will be the singapore Bozana Sales period in mid of the year (May and June) as most of the branded items are having great worth discounts with quality. Further, can go for durian and many exotic local fruits season. Easy access to public transportation such as Grab and local taxi with MRT.

You can buy souvenirs here if you'd like to buy oleh2 or gifts for your family and friend back home. The cheap store I found was named Toko ABC. You can also find good Singapore street food and juice. If you're hungry, there's a Hawker Canter called Albert - good food and not so expensive (even if more expensive than Maxwell in China Town)

Street shop were found near bugis street. Actual location is opposite to bugis Junction. 5mins walk from bugis mrt. ABC trading was one of the most popular shop for budget $1 shopping.

So I often read about Bugis street and the shopping that is it is a must go if you have time, so, I did.
It is very busy and has 3 stories of little shops ranging from food to clothing to souvenirs. The 3rd floor has alot of beauty facilities like getting nails done to massages.
Due to time constraints we didn’t try all that out but we did find a few cute pieces of clothing for my daughter.
You cannot try the clothing on there as there are jo change rooms, however, I was pleasantly surprised at the fashion and what was available. Prices are mostly fixed but
You can try.

We had a fantastic couple of hours at Bugis street market, there are hundreds of stall selling everything you can imagine. Make sure you eat at one of the local food outlets, there are lots to choose from and they all look amazing. Its where all the local people eat so you know the food is good.

Easy to get to. Lots of interesting food places with local food but also a Burger King right there for the kids as they are not as keen to try other things. Found it to be a lot cheaper to eat there than other local places. Can get crowded but people don’t push or shove and are very polite. I probably would not take little kids at night when very busy but definitely during the day. Great place to get a few souvenirs for a few dollars. Would recommend this.

This place really highlights many aspects of what Singapore is. You really get a taste for the hustle and bustle of market shopping at its best. Plenty of people, plenty of very affordable souvenirs, a big range of 'local' foods (baked and cooked)/drinks along with everyday type items such as handbags and clothing. Many locals hang out there so that's always a good sign of the quality and authenticity of what's on offer. There is more than one floor here but many visitors don't realise there's that option. Unexpectedly found here was good quality fresh fruit.
