Singapore offers great shopping opportunities. The city
is very modern, has many malls and stores of major
international chains. The biggest brands in the world
are present in the city and sometimes have super
luxurious stores. The prices of the products, however,
may not be so incredible, so it is always important to
see if that much desired gift is really worth it if it
is purchased abroad. One thing is certain: In Singapore,
you can find fast fashion to the renowned brands!
Orchard Road is a place to not lose
sight of. There are several malls along this route, so
you can find everything from designer stores to the most
popular ones. It is a place where you can find a little
bit of everything and is a must for anyone who wants to
shop. Among the main shopping malls in the region are
ION Orchard and Paragon. If you are interested in retro style items, just visit
InternetAges where you can find vintage record players.
Some of the malls have several floors (including in
the basement) and certain floors have more exclusive
stores, while other floors have more popular stores, so
check the mall map to find out where that store you want
to go to is found. Another tip is that some subway
stations usually have a good trade around them, in the
Another very cool mall to visit, which is huge and
quite different, is Shoppes by Marina Bay Sands
- it is a refined shopping center, with some of the most
sophisticated stores on the market, but it is worth
striking even though the goal is not to shop. The mall
is very nicely decorated and has canals reminiscent of
those in Venice - anyone who wants can hire a boatman to
take a gondola ride through the canals of the place.
Chinatown is ideal for buying
products with cheap prices and finding some travel
souvenirs. In Little India, the must-see place for
shopping is the Mustafa Center, a
24-hour shopping center, with several floors, many
products from India and many other places in the world.
The Living City, which can be known
on the way to Sentosa is also a nice mall for shopping.
Tip: The tax charged for products
does not always appear on the value of the labels, so be
aware that the final amount of the 7% tax will be added
to the final value of your purchase. This tax can be
repaid with the TAX Refund procedure (when the purchase
price in an establishment exceeds S $ 100). See more
information about the tax refund for
purchases made in Singapore.
