(Orchard Central, where I used to work)
If you love to shop until you drop, then you should read this. Singapore is such a great place to shop, may it be for your electronic gadgets, branded and signature clothing, or budget shopping this is your paradise! I know we do have a shopping paradise here too like Divisoria (for budget ones) and the malls, however, there are limited shops here though.
Unlimited Shopping Choices
Unlike Singapore, they catered to all the budget range shopping spree. They have Bugis Street as the budget and popular shopping area (specially for the younger ones who have limited budget), There’s Orchard Central for the for your favorite boutiques like Guess, Gucci, Versace, Ferragamo, or the casual brands such as Zara, Forever 21, Top Shop, and I heard that H&M will soon open in Singapore too!
(Shopping in Bugis)
Marina Bay Sands Shopping Center is also one great place for splurging if you think Bugis and OC or Somerset won’t make you drop. Vivo City is the place for your gadgets (specially during the expo, take advantage of it!) that can be cheaper than Philippines if you’re there in a lucky time. Although, I should remind you that do not forget Chinatown for the cheap buys and great souvenir shops, as well as Little India’s perfume center (that’s where you get the cheapest) and some tiny streets have little boutiques of great buys too.
(Me and my brother at the subway waiting area)
Do not worry on how to get from one place to another, the subway is the most friendliest transportation yo get you to all of these shopping destination or just flag a taxi. I don’t recommend bus because its confusing, in my 3 months of stay in Singapore its on my last week when I learned how to ride it (their station boards are confusing), that’s all.
