Chinatown – a shopping paradise

While you don’t need any specific reason to go shopping, well, the sky is blue today so you had to shop. But knowing where the best shopping spots are in a city or town helps you plan your day more easily. You spend less time scouring for the best products and just get to concentrate all your energy in shopping till you just can’t anymore (there is no such thing as such).

If you are in Kuala Lumpur don’t stress over how you will reach this shopping haven. Board an express bus, buy tickets online from and arrive in Singapore quite comfortably, without burning a hole in your pocket. 

Singapore’s Chinatown is a hub for all things Chinese, and this extends to the shops and malls that you will find in the area. Most things here are made in China, whether you are looking for traditional items, imported toys or even antiques. Our favourite spot to shop in Singapore Chinatown has to be the colourful markets that line the lanes near Chinatown MRT. The malls are also fun to explore, shops here tend to offer great value Chinese items and where there’s shopping, there’s food, so you won’t be short of snacks and along with plenty of places to rest if the bags get too heavy.

One such shopping hotspot you need to visit is Chinatown in Singapore.
