A Singapore tour package may only prominently feature its amazing tourist attractions, world-class zoos and fabulous restaurants, but the country is also an exhilarating and popular shopping destination. From global brands to chic local boutiques, from budget deals to designer steals; Singapore is a paradise for shopaholics. If you belong to that category, or simply enjoy a shopping spree from time to time, read on to know where you should go to shop in Singapore:
This is the one of the most popular shopping areas in Singapore. Orchard road is a long belt of shopping malls where you can purchase high-end brands or grab some great budget deals.
Choose from luxury brands like Chanel, Louis Vuitton, Saint Laurent Paris and Christian Dior at Ion Orchard or Ngee Ann City, or head to Far East Plaza to buy vintage items and low-priced but trendy apparel. 313 @ Somerset and Plaza Singapura are other malls where locals like to shop themselves. Here you can find international department chain stores such as Forever 21 and The Body Shop amongst others.
If fashion on a budget is the need of the hour, then Bugis Village is the place to go during your Singapore tour package. From a range of accessories, male and female apparel and a dizzying variety of shoes, everything you need to give your wardrobe a complete makeover without emptying your bank account, can be found here. So if you’ve got a passion for fashion and love all kinds of deals and bargains then make it a point to visit Bugis Village while in Singapore, you definitely won’t regret it.
This is a shopping destination for those who shy away from mainstream fashion. If you like vintage clothing, local designers and have a taste for the unconventional, then a visit to Haji Lane is a must. Located close to Bugis Village, Haji Lane offers up some great merchandise that you would never be able to find in regular malls. Both locals and tourists on international tour packages from Mumbai, Delhi and Sydney flock here to experience the alternative flavour of Singapore. So even if you’re not a big shopper, a walk down here is great for people-watching and wonderful photo opportunities.
If you’d like a complete mall experience that includes shopping, entertainment and dining, then Vivo City is the best bet. Found to the south of Singapore, just before the famous Sentosa Island, Vivo City is a huge mall that offers visitors a multitude of options. Shop at brand stores for the latest trends of the season, dine at any of its fabulous restaurants, grab a quick bite at a fast food chain or watch the latest movie at the cinema. What’s more, when you’re tired out after shopping and a fun day, you can visit any of the mall’s beauty and spa services to pamper yourself with a facial, a manicure or even a wonderfully relaxing foot massage.
