where to buy cheap clothes in Singapore ?

Hi !

We are traveling to Bali indonesia next week but arriving Singapore and staying there for 3 nights.

As we are taking few clothes with us, where should we buy clothes in Singapore?

We like cheap bargains and usually branded, preferably in malls / shopping centers. Just loved MBK in Bangkok.

Any advices on this? Or should we just wait for buying in Bali ?

Thanks !

Mustaffa center at Little India and the shops along little India street.

Most prices on display are fixed and some open for negotiation if they are no price tag.

Cheers

U can find bargains but not 'cheap' branded. Branded goods here are at retail prices though u can find discounts here n there. Cannot compare to BKK.

Cheap AND branded in Singapore ? That's not going to happen.

As suggested, Mustafa's clothes are cheap to buy, and generally cheap in quality, but you get what you pay for.

Most of the malls are not cheap, ''Lucky Plaza'' does lean towards ''cheaper'' stuff, but it's not good, imho.

As ''raras2u'' wrote, ''cannot compare to BKK'', Singapore is no longer inexpensive (cheap) like it was forty + years ago, it's dangerously close to pricing itself out of the market altogether, especially hotel prices.

I've stopped going to Singapore sadly, it's way too expensive these days.

Enjoy, Alan.

In Singapore, branded clothes is usually referred to as designer wear(RL, Banana Rep., Raoul(local brand), AX, Hugo BOss, u get the drift). If you can get these in MBK, Bangkok, they should be fakes, so maybe they are cheap.

But if you mean shops with brands which are not knock-offs, then there are quite a few. Topshop/man is value for money and you can find them in the Marina shopping area, G2000 which u can find everywhere or at least every other mall in Singapore and P.O.A which has afew outlets too. The more value-conscious ones may got for Giordano, Bossini, Hang Ten. If you are looking for trendy, cheaper clothes, you can try Far East Plaza which targets mainly teenagers and youths.

In Summary, to get higher value brand names, try Ngee Ann City, Paragon, Mandarin Gallery and Raffles City. Value-wise, hit Marina Square, Suntec City, Far East Plaza or any surburban malls and u can even try Shaw Centre in Orchard, level 4 for everyday sales, you might net a bargain there.
