Bugis Street: 3 New Bugis Street
Bugis Street was internationally known for its al fresco dining, bazaar atmosphere, and infamously known for its notorious nightly cabaret shows and parades from the 1950s to 80s. However, the street’s famed flamboyance is now a thing of the past. The once gritty district has been transformed to the new Bugis Street.
If you do not fancy the glitz and prices of traditional, then head down to Singapore’s largest bazaar-style shopping zone and be spoilt for choice! You can find all the things you never knew you needed at Bugis Street.
Choose from clothes, tech gadgets, and cute little souvenirs to bring home. Ladies, you can also get your nails and lashes done. And the best part? They are very affordable (by local standards)!

You don’t have to worry about having to lug your shopping bags. Your room is just nearby and you can always make more than one trip!
Tip: Try to remember a distinctive feature of the stall you are interested in (or snap a picture) as they may all look the same to you after awhile. For all you bargain shoppers, try to haggle for the best price.
