"Blacklisted Shopping Malls" Sim Lim Square Tip by MavarickChng

Sim Lim Square, Singapore: 4 reviews and 0 photos

Lucky Plaza @ Orchard Road
for decades the shops here are notorious for ripping off tourists with electronic goods.
last known case - a foreigner was charged SGD$250 for 3 pieces of 2-way electric socket that cost at most $2 each.

Sim Lim Square @ Bencoolen
Number 1 most well known electronics shopping mall in Singapore.
Stay away from the shops on ground and 2nd floor - 90% of the shops located at these levels are known to con tourists, even locals stay away from them.
Shop only from 3rd level onwards.

People's Park Centre/Complex @ Chinatown
even locals get con here from shops that sells Jade/precious stones/antique
this is also not a place to buy electronics
