Bugis Street

Bugis Street, Singapore

When I told my friend that Singapore is too expensive for my liking, he replied that it’s because I don’t know where to go. He said that if I don’t want to be fleeced, I shouldn’t go to touristy places like Bugis Street and VivoCity shopping mall.

Well, unfortunately, these places were exactly where I went when I was in Singapore for three days in mid-June. I even went to Bugis Street night bazaar twice. What to do; the place is just so convenient, it’s just a short walk from the Bugis MRT station. I didn’t buy anything though, except bread for breakfast the following morning.

It was my first visit to Bugis Street even though this wasn’t my first visit to Singapore. I was surprised that it looked like Petaling Street. Well, it’s not as if I have been to Petaling Street that many times but that was the impression I had, except for the existence of the lone adult shop. Teehee.

Even though my friend told me that Bugis Street is a touristy place, I didn’t feel it. Petaling Street is way more touristy with every other shopper a Caucasian. When I was at Bugis Street, I was surrounded by Singaporeans, mostly, so it was like any other night bazaar or pasar malam locally.
