In the recent years, Singapore has become a very popular destination for travelers. And as it offers a more metropolitan view of tourism, visiting Singapore is a dream for every shopaholic. As the website www.yoursingapore.com says “There is practically something for every shopper in Singapore”. There are so many shopping malls and outlet stores, which offer a great variety of products. In addition, as the popular quote says, “Shop till you drop”.
Mustafa Centre is located in the Little India district and you will never find it empty. It is one of the favorites in Singapore and it is the best place to visit if you wish to get a bargain on everything. Interesting fact is that it is open round the clock and may be this is why the government had to issue a court order to close a floor for too much crowd. Best time to go is early in the morning or after midnight.
The hotspot for shopaholics is definitely Orchard Road. In its spaceship-like design it comprises eight retail floors, plus residential ones, and it is full of different shopping malls with its own “clientele” and type. Ion Orchard is the place to be if you wish to do more luxurious shopping with international labels like Chanel, Dior and other.
Sungei Road Thieves’ Market
You should also visit Singapore’s oldest market – Sungei Road Thieves’ Market. Head there if you are on the hunt for more retro stuff, which you will get on a good bargain. It is a bit chaotic but it is also a great deal of fun as you will find true gems from used clothes and not only.
Want to find a vintage treasure? Then head to Haji Lane – the shopping hotspot for vintage stuff, indie lovers and local designers. Be sure to leave more time for it as the colorful street has to offer a lot of beautiful stores filled with quite the unconventional apparels. You will not find stuff like this in the regular shopping mall. Nonetheless, the street is so beautiful that even if you are not a big shopping fan, you could take some photos and take a stroll down Haji Lane.
Bugis Village or Bugis Junction
Bugis Village or Bugis Junction is the place to be to get the most from a low fashion budget. Interestingly designed, part of the mall has the form of an air-conditioned shopping street with glass ceilings. It offers everything you can imagine – accessories, apparel, shoes – really everything. The prices of the products are unbeatable as you will get everything on the best one possible – rumor is that you can get a pair of earring for 2$ or a dress for about 10$. Moreover, the most fascinating thing is that everybody loves it, even famous stars like Steven Tyler who has been spotted there buying shoes – obviously great stuff on great prices.
