Why Bugis Junction is special ?

It's a modern and clean mall that definitely caters to the younger crowd. Prices are reasonable both at the fashion stores and the food junction. Nice mix of local specialties along with Japanese and Western goodies.



The mall carries a fair bit of funky local brands, and most of them are at prices that do not necessitate the carrying of a wheelbarrow full of cash, as is the norm when you shop around Orchard Road.



In addition, there's another basement level that's basically nothing but snacks and street food (you can get fried durian here!), ranging from little fried treats to the wonderful (but artery-clogging) buttered kaya toast at Ya Kun Kaya. They also have takoyakis and Beard Papa and...really, you can just have dinner by picking a whole bunch of different snack items in this mall's basement.

What to explore at Bugis Junction?

Bugis Junction has a mixture of shopping options to enthral even the most seasoned of shoppers. Part traditional mall, part open-air shopping district, Bugis Junction is one of the few malls in Singapore that has sidewalk cafes and shophouses sitting alongside gleaming new retail palaces.

One signature feature of this mall is its glass-covered shopping street, a first for Singapore in its time. Some of the shops you’ll find at Bugis include department store BHG, Topshop, Converse, Kinokuniya, Cotton On, and there’s also a Shaw cinema on the fourth floor. Popular with teenagers and young adults, Bugis Junction has four levels and a basement, and is handily located right above Bugis MRT station.

Here, you’ll find several cheap eateries as well as more pricey restaurants, offering a range of dining experiences to suit your budget. The five-star InterContinental Hotel is also part of the mall complex, so if you’re planning to book a room at this hotel, you might want to check out the mall’s offerings.

Everything under the sun.Wide selection of clothing, cheap prices, quality TBA.Plenty on offer and a fun place to pick up a bargain.Lots of little hawker stalls in area as well.We were there around moon festival and there were LOTS of places to buy moon cakes but these were expensive as they were to buy and impress others not to eat!Close to Bugis MRT and also Raffles Hospital if it goes wrong.

Over the years returning to Singapore, Bugis Junction is always on our list to shop. Situated in the Cosmopolitan part of Singapore it is neither "glitzy" or "common" but a hub that would be perfectly suited to everyone in the family.Over the past couple of years the SMRT has managed to extend their station where you can walk straight into the shopping plaza without the need of crossing streets etc.The decor still represent the old South East Asian British colonial architecture that is unique to Singapore and Malaysia however modernised and air conditioned. There are a few floors with tens of different stores where the average tourist shopper would hyperventilate in sheer joy.Close to the facility, a few hundred metres walk through a number of alley ways of crowded stalls and kiosks you can arrive to the Kwan Im Thong Hood Cho Temple. Please walk in however I ask many of the readers to respect the beliefs of the locals whom are praying or meditating there.Walk a little further and you will arrive to Sim Lim Tower which is a must for every IT / computer specialist and those whom are in the Audio Visual Industry. After 14 years experience in this building, it is better that you go with those whom love your passion (ergo let the significant other shop in Bugis Junction) while you take a full day starting from the very top level going down. The top level is much cheaper than the lower which many of the tourist goes.Totally recommend this area.

This is my personal favourite mall in Singapore. It's conveniently located right above the Bugis MRT station, it feels spacious and inviting without the over-the-top glitzy feel that seems to permeate most new malls in the country (I'm looking at you, ION Orchard). The mall carries a fair bit of funky local brands, and most of them are at prices that do not necessitate the carrying of a wheelbarrow full of cash, as is the norm when you shop around Orchard Road. There also seems to always be some special offers around the retailers, making the shopping experience even more enjoyable. If you're looking for designs that you will never find in North America, but at prices that won't obliterate your budget, look no further than this mall. Other things I enjoy are the open air feel of the mall's central forum, with many small retailers in tidy carts parked in the middle. I also spent WAY too much time playing in the absurdly large video game arcade in the basement during my 5-month stay as an exchange student here. Not to mention the presence of the delicious MOS burger right above said game station, and it really is an overall complete experience. In addition, there's another basement level that's basically nothing but snacks and street food (you can get fried durian here!), ranging from little fried treats to the wonderful (but artery-clogging) buttered kaya toast at Ya Kun Kaya. They also have takoyakis and Beard Papa and...really, you can just have dinner by picking a whole bunch of different snack items in this mall's basement. Something which I also did far too often during my academic stay. There's a rather prominent sign in the mall's basement that says "I HEART Bugis Junction". That sums it all up, really.
