We visited here as part of a city night tour. Its full of atmosphere and very lively. The prices are so cheap. Be careful as it is so crowded and a lot of pushing and shoving. Got some lovely cheap necklaces. It was a pity we didn't have longer here as it is a shoppers paradise for bargains

Convenient located selling tourist goods. reasonably clean and tidy. We just had a walk around and bought a fruit drink from a stall. Unluckily it's flavoured sugar water rather than real juice. They had a stall selling durian near one of the entrance. We bought some of the more expensive type to try out on the street..probably at a tourist... More

A bit claustrophobic, as so many people and narrow alleys, and if you go to the next level up it's impossible to find the exit. But you won't care because there are so many bargains! From great, stylish, unique clothes, jewellery, souvenirs, cheap salon salons, hair places, cosmetics, shoes, bags, food... I love this place!

While it packed with people, the price was reasonable. Mustafa center might be cheaper, but it's not as crowded as mustafa. You can bargain the price, especially for bulk buy.

Bugis Street is home to the largest market in Singapore. Bugis Street Market, commonly referred to as ‘Bugis Village’, is a very busy market with many stalls selling a vast array of goodies at a cheap price. Most of the stalls open early (around 11:00), staying open until the crowds leave. Bugis Street Market has plenty of eating options as... More
