Ranked 78 among Places to Visit in Singapore
Time Required: 3-4 hours
The biggest, cheapest place for shopping, Bugis Street is a paradise for shopaholics. It is a huge part of Singapore with its main roads as Rocher Road and Victoria Street. The place is filled with various cultures and few of Singapore's key attractions. Bugis Street or Bugis Village is a large complex of over 600 shops and stores varying in items and wares. The place attracts tourists and locals alike and is almost always crowded with hoards of people looking to buy stuff or just to window shop and enjoy the atmosphere. The street that used to be known for its dodgy way of life is now a renowned urban multicultural prime spot.
The shops at Bugis Street sell all sorts of things- from clothes, souvenirs, shoes, and jewelry to paintings, artifacts, and cutlery. There is no end to the variety you get at this place and all at low prices. Bargaining is practiced to a large extent at this street. The ground shops are mainly for the tourists selling souvenirs and other knick-knacks, but the further you wander, the more serious the goods buyers sell are. Some things sold, however, may not be as original as they look. To make it more shopper friendly, the recent renovation saw an addition of a cover to all the streets shops so that the weather doesn't prevent shoppers from gathering here.
