As a shopping paradise, Singapore offers a lot of place for shopping. From Orchard - the most famous - to boutiques at Haji Lane. From Bugis Junction to Bugis market. Yeah!!! Singapore really
Bugis Market, who doesn't know about this market? For shopaholic this market absolutely would be their playground. If you want to buy souvenirs, you can find it here. Cheap boots? You can have it for under s$ 25. Clothes? Some local cuisines? Accessories? Just explore the market and you will find those stuff here.
Well, probably I can say that Bugis market is the real paradise for shopaholic.
Unlike with its neighbor - the Bugis Junction Mall - the stuff price is cheaper here. Some shops give us fix price while others allow us to make a bargain.
My journey to Bugis Market began on the last day of my trip. Singapore was really hot at that time. But on behalf of souvenirs for my friends and colleague and cheap stuff for me, I had to go to Bugis Market and bought all the stuff that I need in there. First I came to souvenir shop. I bought some key holders and magnetic accessories. It was quite cheap. I forgot what the price was but it seemed they gave me good price.
After bought a lot of things there, I bought a glass of longans in a syrup with ice. Standing in the front of a shop, I drank it and finished it immidiately. I still bought some stuff after it and stopped shopping when I found that I didn't have any money left in my wallet.
And yes, I recommend this place for shopping. It's not such a cozy place for shopping but I guarantee thay you will get a lot of things in a good price. I suggest to wear comfort clothes, flip flop or flat shoes, and of course money! I don't see any atm machine around here. And it seems you can only pay by cash.
Bugis Market is easy to reach. Just take the mrt to Bugis station and then follow the direction in the station to Bugis Market.
