Don't Miss Shopping in Singapore

Singaporeans live to shop and you will see the evidence of this at the myriad of malls, department stores, and shops in practically every pocket of community. Most shops are open till 9pm or 10pm at night, seven days a week, allowing you convenient and hassle-free shopping.

Central Shopping Belt
For designer shopping and specialty stores, Singapore's Central Shopping Belt at Orchard Road is a haven for shopaholics! A fashionable hangout for the in-crowd, department stores and boutiques, outdoor cafes and gourmet restaurants line the street enticing you to drop by.

Suburban Shopping Belt
Besides the well-known shopping district of Orchard Road, you will be surprised at the variety of goods and bargains you can find at suburban shopping centres and local shops located at housing estates across the island. Singaporeans live, eat, and shop in the heartlands - here is where you will discover some of the best bargains. Competitive prices and promotions reign all year-round at some of these shops, a bonus for those with modest budgets.

Niche Enclaves
If you're looking for something less run-of-the-mill, you might just find it in one of the many niche enclaves offering a shopping experience of a different kind. Check out Funan centre for all your photographic and IT needs. Head for the Heeren and Far East Square for an electric range of clothes, CDs and gear tailored for the young and hip generation. Ethnic quarters like Chinatown, Little India, and Malay Village are where you will discover knick-knacks and items reflecting Singapore's roots and rich cultural heritage.
