Reviewed November 2, 2012 via mobile

Absolutely a must go location visited Bugis Street markets and street markets. The place come to life after 12:00 and is a shopping Mecca for bargain hunters especially women's clothes. Will be coming back again with empty suitcases next time!

“Shopping”
Reviewed November 1, 2012

This is a good place to shop if you are looking for low price for current fashion. Alot of varities since there are three storeys. You may find the same item with different price across the shop. It is good to make comparison before buying.

It is always crowded. You are not allow to try since it is cheap.

“One of the last Singapore frontiers”
Reviewed October 27, 2012

Bugis Street has always been "the" place to shop in Singapore. Probably one of the last areas that haven't been knocked down or removed in the pursuit of progress.

Yes it's crowded, but that's half the fun. This is how visitors to Singapore should see the city. Vibrant, exciting and honest. A market place you can walk through without fear of being pick pocketed or harassed. Not for those of us of a larger size, but hey this is Asia - anyone over a size 12 can forget seriously finding anything. But the fun is still there.

“haggle away!”
Reviewed October 27, 2012

the only place i know of in singapore that you can haggle with the vendors.
the clothes are fashionable, cheap and either one-of-a-kind or following the trends. Choose the style you love! There are vintage clothes, cheap funky pieces, something for everyone. Especially for the fashionista who is not attached to the price but style of clothes

“Night market kind of feel”
Reviewed October 27, 2012

Lots of bargain deals for Singapore souvenirs, clothes and food. Interesting undercover street styled shops. Please do look around before buying. Just at the back of the "village" is more interesting places like Kwan In Temple and Rocher thief market. Great place to meet up for backpackers.
