Even such type of markets is very common in Asia and not only , in Singapore is not very obvious , visit this place for cheap souvenir shopping and some accessories for your cameras and mobile phone . Everything is cheap and no selling copies !

Good for souvenir shopping and great for food as well from a nearby hawker centre. Lots of shops offering cheap SG shirts and some classy souvenirs.

You can grab a great deal for caps/bags and even souvenirs in this street. However, if possible, avoid going on weekends as it can get really crowded.

A great spot to have a wander around and for a bite to eat. The place is bustling with activity. Worth a visit whilst in Singapore.

Visited this place with a friend around the time of Chinese new year and boy this place looked so awesome. A lot of crowd and late night restaurants as well as some really good street food. You'll find a lot of tourists here. Should be on everyone's must visit list.

Tight, crowded, noisy, colourful and loads of fun. Lots of vendors selling different products (sometimes the same products) competing with one another for the customer's dollar. Unlike some street markets (ie Petaling Street in KL) one feels quite secure here. You are not hustled by 'in your face' peddlers and you can bargain without feeling pressured.

You definitely need to visit Bugis Street Markets if you are looking for some Souvenirs. There is a good variety and reasonable prices. You can probably even try to haggle a little. While you are there, search out the Dragon's Breath stall. Dessert with a difference.

Its a place crowded with people. One can avail discounts by bargaining. Comparatively a cheaper place to buy mementos for family. Even chocolates are also sold at a comparatively cheaper rate. But there's no change in the quality sold at other place in mall.
