Fun, full on, busy, frenetic, cheap no major shops just lots of small shops. Better atmosphere that the big sterile malls. Spent a lot of time wandering around.

what do you do if you're a shopaholic, but on a limited budget in expensive singapore? You go to bugis, of course! Bugis is for shopaholic bargain hunters like me who get their thrills from cheapo finds and who'd sacrifice anything in the shopping--crowds, sweat,...More

Bugis Street Markets are very hot and crowded. Many stalls all selling the same thing - cheap quality womens clothing and mobile phone accessories. A good place to go for the experience, but if it is shopping you want - there is much better around.

You can spend as long as you like, it is a big market to walk around. I would say between 1 & 3 hrs. depending on what you want to purchase.
