It’s A Steal! 6 Cheapest Places In Singapore To Shop At

Yes, we know. It isn’t cheap to shop in Singapore, especially when you head to the malls along Orchard Road. Well, the good news is that you don’t always have to burn a hole in your pocket when you go on a shopping spree! This is because there are several affordable shopping options on this sunny island.

Ready to unleash your inner shopaholic? Today, Evolve Vacation shares 6 Cheapest Places In Singapore To Shop At:

1) Mustafa Centre


Located in Little India, Mustafa Centre is a great place to shop at before or after you take in the sights and sounds of this vibrant neighborhood. Upon entering the massive shopping centre, you might feel a tad overwhelmed as there are over 75,000 items – from sports gear and clothes to electronics, snacks and even gold jewelry – spread across 4 floors! And the best part is that Mustafa Centre is open 24/7. So you can take your time to explore and locate the best deals!

2) *Scape


Many local blogshops sell their clothes at a cheaper rate in *Scape rather than online, so we think it’s actually more worth it to make a trip here rather than purchase from them online! If you’re an accessories junkie, then *Scape would be your shopping paradise because it has a selection of unique necklaces and rings. Psst! You might want to head to *Scape underground for more bargains.

3) Sungei Road Thieves Market


For those who have a knack for quirky items such as vintage film cameras or old school coke bottles, Sungei Road Thieves Market is the place to shop at! If you’re wondering why it’s known as the Thieves Market, here’s a very quick background: A long time ago, Sungei Road used to be the place where thieves hawk their stolen items. Back then, when locals discovered that items were stolen from their homes, they would head to Sungei Road to find and buy them back. Thank goodness this doesn’t happen anymore!

As this market has been around for generations (since the 1930’s!), we feel that it’s worth checking out before they cease operations to make way for the new Jalan Besar MRT station.

With over 600 shops containing wallet-friendly priced items, Bugis Street is Singapore’s biggest street shopping bazaar. We suggest setting aside more time for shopping if you decide to make a trip here. With alleys and alleys of shops, you’d be spoilt for choice when it comes to options for clothes, shoes, accessories, bags, wallets, knick-knacks, and even food.

Ladies, if you want to get your nails done, there are nail salons in Far East Plaza that provide express manicures at just $5! Apart from that, there are also hair salons and places that offer spas and massages – perfect for a day of pampering yourself. After treating yourself, you can also check out the deals on Far East Plaza’s 6 floors of shops and shop till you drop.

6) IMM Outlet Mall


Tucked away in the west side of Singapore, IMM Outlet Mall offers some great bargains at its branded retail outlets, health and home furnishing shops, as well as Daiso – where everything is only $2! Although Jurong East might seem pretty out of the way, we reckon it’s worth the trip. After all, why buy your favorite branded items at full price in Orchard Road when you can get them at a steal here?
