Singapore is not a cheap place to visit and this is not a must see market, I would recommend China Town of some of the local arcades for cheap tourist type junk, if your looking for some brand names head to Orchard Rd

It's a flea market. Old people old stuff. A unique history of Singapore. Soon by July 2017 the thieves market have to stop operating. Catch one last time before it's all gone. A sight of Singapore that you don't see
