Bugis has a colorful past having been originally named after the bloodthirsty race of pirates who prowled in the Straits before the arrival of the British.

Nearest MRT station: Bugis (EW12)

Bugis Junction is a large, modern shopping centre with a cinema, which connects to Hotel Intercontinental and is open daily for 10am - 10 pm.
Bugis Village,(day & night market) has narrow corridors and is crammed with small stalls selling cheap clothes, bags, watches and food. It can be hot and stifling because of being crammed full of people!
There are umpteen stalls here, selling all kinds of food, so there is no need to go hungry!

Located in the area at 152 Waterloo St is a Sri Krishnan Hindu temple dedicated to Vishnu.
Worth a look at, and you might be lucky and see some street entertainers that congregate in this area.
In the street here are lots of flower sellers busily making garlands.
