WA N D E R L U S T Retail Therapy With its economic prosperity and strategic location, it is no wonder that Singapore hosts a plethora of goods and shopping spots packed with something for everybody. Although Singapore has indoor shopping malls, some of the best places to shop in the city include the busy sidewalks and clusters of outdoor markets. The best places to shop would be the multi-faceted Orchard Road, Mustafa Centre, Arab Street, and Little India, among others – all boasting an overwhelming diversity of various brands and merchandise. Bags, shoes and technological gadgets are the highlights of any visit to Singapore. For bargain hunters, Mustafa Shopping Centre would be a shopping haven. You will be amazed by the sheer variety and it is also a great place for some bulk buying if you wish to carry gifts back home for friends and family. The markets in Chinatown carry enchanting traditional souvenirs at great prices to give out as gifts. If you are a technology buff, look no further than the Funan IT Digital Mall or Sim Lim Square. Do not forget to haggle for the best deals. Mustafa Centre, too, carries a good variety of electronic products at amazing prices. 64
