China Town: "Great shopping" Singapore Shopping Tip by FAJB
Singapore Shopping: 290 reviews and 369 photos
Stay out of the Mall - it's too big and pushy.
I liked the street stalls and got wonderful buys, and pretty good stuff.
"3 for $10sg" shops - lots of junk but some real finds, my fav is in Chinatown Complex: Silk placemats with chopsticks, jewelery, purses, bags... tourist heaven. Like the U.S.A. "$1" shops or Tokyo's "100Yen" shops, though not as big.
The street malls off Pagoda in Chinatown had some high quality, and some good prices to be found.
What to buy: Pashmina and Silk shawls
Batik prints, dresses, shirts, skirts, pants, material - a 2.5metre cloth for $18sg/$12.60 USD makes a gorgeous tablecloth
Lots of cotton, silk or Linen clothing, embroidery.
Fruit is very good and reasonable (tomatoes were tasteless)
Address: Pagoda in Chinatown
Directions: Between South Bridge Road and Trengganu Street
Theme: Discount Store
