Bugis, Singapore


Bugis Junction
Singapore's teenage haven, built around the restored shophouses of Hylam and Malay Streets, covered with a roof for shopping in any weather. Anchor tenants here include department store BHG and the minimalist Japanese home decoration shop Muji. The basement of Bugis Junction has a good selection of cheap to mid-range eateries and the Food Junction food court on the 3rd floor is a cut above the usual. C
heck out the ever-surprising fountain in the middle of Bugis Square.

Bugis Junction by Terence Ong

Bugis+ it is the latest mall in Bugis, aimed primarily at the same teen market as Bugis Junction. Located opposite Bugis Junction, it houses more or less the same shops plus a 9-screen cineplex. Worth coming here at night, when the panels outside pulse and shift in an impressive light show. Bugis+ houses a unique food court called Ramen Champion, comprising of nothing but ramen (Japanese noodle dish) shops from Japan and that's worth a visit for any ramen fan.

Bugis Street
Located right across Victoria Street, Bugis Street is no longer home to bars and transvestites but does have a bazaar (Bugis Village) that sells all sorts of vaguely touristy nick-knacks as well as mass-market street wear. This is the cheapest place in Singapore to buy T-shirts for friends and family back home, although the quality of those SGD2 shirts is pretty much what you pay for. If you haven't sampled tropical fruits yet, take a look at the fruit stalls at the other end.

Bugis Street, Singapore

Market in Bugis Street

If you continue walking straight through Bugis Street, you'll reach the Albert Street and Waterloo Street pedestrian mall. Browse through the shops offering Buddhist paraphernalia. Sin Chew Chinese Cultural Products Supermart is true to its name. This store packs in vast quantities of Buddhas and Confucian deities, glittering in gold, blinking lights and all shades of kitsch. Note the statue of Hotei ("Laughing Buddha") outside the store - there is a steady stream of people rubbing his big belly, hoping to catch some of his good fortune. Keep going straight to reach the electronics haven of Sim Lim Square and beyond it is Little India.
