Shopping Guide for Singapore
Singapore is known around the world as a shopping city and is one of the many Singapore attractions, and certainly won’t disappoint anyone looking for the newest technology, trendiest clothing, or modern art. Singapore is one of the few Asian cities not known for having large bazaars or locally made products. In fact, nearly everything you can find for purchase in Singapore was made in a different location. Here are some of best recommended shopping areas in Singapore.
Orchard Road is perhaps the best known area for shopping in Singapore. Nearly all of the international shops are concentrated along this road. The street is lined with more expensive designers along the ground floor, and window shopping might be the order of the day unless you are prepared to fork over hefty sums at these upscale shops. Thankfully, there are also plenty of malls along Orchard Road, full of cheaper international shops like H&M and Zara. Some of the most popular malls include the Far East Plaza, Wheelock Place, ION Orchard, Lucky Plaza, and Plaza Singapura.
If you are looking for something other than the easy to find clothing stores, consider looking through some truly unique shops in Chinatown or Little India. Chinatown is full of stalls and vendors selling traditional trinkets and medicines, as well as some more upscale antique and art galleries. Little India is perhaps best known for its markets selling fresh produce, which remind visitors of the country of India itself. For traditional Indian clothing, incense, and sweets, visit the Little Indian Arcade.
