Shopping is almost a spiritual pursuit in Singapore. From Malls selling high-end fashion and electronics to small leafy streets specializing in antiques or textiles, it’s not hard to find a reason to part with your dollars. Anywhere you go in Singapore, Little India, China Town, Orchard Road, there is something always to lure a shopaholic.

 

One of the best places for fashion in Singapore is Raoul – it is one of the few Singaporean brands that tends towards European cuts, meaning you are more likely to find larger sizes than expected in there. Accessories are particularly good – with leather bags that look pricier than they are. You will find branches on Orchard Road and at Marina Bay Sands. Another famous one is Soon Lee, located in a charming three-storied shop house, which makes shopping there a very pleasant experience. The store claims to cater to the “sassy”woman, selling stylish, tasteful clothing and accessories. The handbags and interesting jewelry selection are also worth checking out. Don’t forget to pay a visit to ION Orchard, if shopping is something, which makes you very happy! One of the best shopping malls in Singapore, it is Orchard Road’s new centre of gravity. Standing just above Orchard MRT station, it is undoubtedly the best looking of all the malls here. You will find top-end brands such as Valentino, Yves Saint Laurent and Prada, as well as more affordable high-street labels such as Uniqlo, plus jewellery and watches galore. Head here for a great shopping and dining experience.

 

For people looking for latest gadgets or great deals on electronic shopping in Singapore,team Plan Journeys proposes few great places for a visit. Sim Lim Square – it’s an electronic hub packed with around 400 or more mini shops selling latest computer accessories like motherboards, sound cards, laptops and other electronics like games consoles and cameras. If you know for what you are here,there are some bargains to be had, but the untutored may be taken for a ride.Hard bargaining is essential here! Funan Digitalife Mall – hardwire yourself across seven floors dominated by electronics, cameras and computer stores in the Colonial District. Fun is better bet than Sim Lim Square if you don’t know exactly what you are doing. Head to the massive Challenger Superstore on the sixth floor or for something smaller, visit family-run camera store John 3: 16. Mustafa Centre – One of the oldest 24 – hour department store in Singapore located in Little India, is a magnet for budget shoppers. This place is just about everything – electronics, jewellery, household items, watches, and etc.all at bargain rates. Avoid on Sundays and public holidays, if you cant handle crowded places!

 

For art and antiques, go for Dempsey Hill, which offers plenty of art and antiques shops. Try Shang Antique, Pasardina Fine Living and Asiatique for a variety of Asian home wares. Visit Tanglin Shopping Centre for all things Asian – rugs, carvings, ornaments, paintings, furniture, etc. The fascinating Antiques of the Orient is housed here, with its old photographs, books and maps. One Price Store – this 1900s shop house is filled with Chinese Art and antiques,including wooden carvings, porcelain snuff boxes and delicate glass jars.
