Bugis Street Market

Biggest Market in Singapore

Bugis Street Market is one of the biggest, cheapest and probably hottest places to come shopping in the whole of Singapore. Fifty years ago, this now famous shopping district was better known for being Singapore’s centre of seedy nightlife, attracting transvestites and workers of the night who would flock into town to entertain the visiting military men.

Bugis has long shaken off its naughty side and become a hub of shopping, fine dining and trendy cafés and bars which stay open long into the night. Bugis Street Market at the epicentre of it all, and found just next to the new malls at Bugis MRT Station.

Popular with both locals and tourists, Bugis Street Market is well-known for being one of the cheapest places in Singapore to buy souvenirs, accessories, clothes, electronics, houseware and cosmetics. Many of the little trinkets here such as souvenir key chains, postcards and stationary are available from as little as S$1, and there is a whole range of clothes on offer, too. Although not exactly Singapore’s most cutting-edge fashion hotspot, quality items for all tastes can be found if you look hard enough. A pair of jeans can set you back just S$10, shirts and t-shirts from S$5, sunglasses and hats from S$2 and shoes from S$15.

Recently revamped, the sprawling market is now all covered, allowing shoppers to enjoy the bargains come rain or shine. Over 800 shops of all shapes and sizes also makes this the biggest market in Singapore, and most of the stalls open early (around 11:00), staying open until the crowds leave, which usually is around 22:00 or 23:00 on the weekends.

As with any popular retail spot in Singapore, Bugis Street Market has plenty of eating options to keep hungry shoppers satisfied. Look out for the excellent fresh juice bar towards the centre (banana, coconut, pineapple, melon, etc. S$2) and there are a few other stalls selling fried snacks, satay and the odd noodle stall. If you’re looking for something more substantial, head to Albert Centre at the back – a large separate hawker centre that serves full meals from around S$3.50.

Bugis Street Market is just steps away from the popular Bugis MRT Station. Look for the red-roofed entrance or just follow the crowds if you’re not sure. For when the market gets too hot, there is also the cooler (but more expensive) Bugis+ mall next door as well as Bugis Junction opposite.
