"If you're not buying anything..." Singapore Tourist Trap Tip by Svitata

Singapore Tourist Traps: 93 reviews and 52 photos

If you're not buying anything from a department store of anywhere where prices are stated, you should bargain on the price. This is especially so when you go to Sim Lim Square or Sim Li Tower to buy electronics and when you're shopping in Chinatown. A lot of the shopkeepers mark up the price unusually high just for tourists! Remember to compare prices when many of the shops are offering the same items. otherwise, Singapore is a very safe to travel to!
