Owner description: Bugis Street market has now been transformed into a mecca for shoppers and bargain-hunters. This market has just about everything you could want – CDs, souvenirs, t-shirts, shoes, jewellery, knick knacks and other fashion items.

If you like 3 levels of crowded shopping arcades then this is the place for you. For the first 5 minutes I thought it was colorful and interesting but then the sameness of every stall hit me (phone covers, small clothes, small shoes). I am amazed that a place that is allegedly for tourists doesn't deal with shoe and clothes sizes that will suit so many Westerners. (My partner is average Australuan size and wears shirt size Medium in Australia but couldn't find a shirt to fit him comfortably here. As a wearer of Large size, I didn't bother looking.) Quite dull after the first 5 minutes.

Bugis Street is a typical Asian market centre, bustling with activity and crammed full of stalls and people. The $1 juices you can buy are fantastic, as are the ice cream and wafer sandwiches. Other than the food and beverage options however, everything is fairly cheap and nasty. Fun to walk through, but I wouldn't go expecting to find any high quality goods.

If you're in Singapore and you can't afford a Ferrari or a real Hermes bag and need to buy some gifts, come to Bugis St. Bugis St. is a typical jampacked shopping experience similar to Pat Pong in Bangkok or the old Tsim Sha Tsui district of Kowloon. Fighting your way through the crowds on the narrow street lined with 100's of tiny shops, you can find almost anything for almost nothing. This is not for quality. This is not for the feint of heart. But this is a lot of fun.

The place is not far from the opposite of Bugis Junction. It is a street market with so many little shops. Huge range of products from t-shirts, keychain, bags, fridge magnet, accesories, drinks, food, etc. The price is low to average, with low to average quality. The funny part is a sex shop can also be found here=).

BTW I don't think most products are produced in Singapore. Perhaps most of them were made in China. Just pay attention before you buy, if you're looking for original Singaporean made.
