Cheap Hotels In Singapore - Bugis and Arab Street
Book cheap hotels in Singapore at Bugis
Bugis and Arab Street are accessible by MRT E1 Station. A historical place with a rich history of merchants from Arab and other parts of Mid Asia who settle in Singapore.
Bugis is at the fringe of the CBD, there are specialized shopping option include Sim Lim Square for electronic and digital equipment. Although Sim Lim Square is notorious for cheating tourists but it is still a popular place for checking out the latest gadget at good prices. My advice is go for shops that locate on 4th floor and above. And shops that you see more locals. Ask around and make prices comparison. If the deal sounds to good to be true, it often is.
Arab Street has gone through a major facelift and I am thankful that they have done a great job. Why did I say so? It is because the earlier preservation projects carried out by the authority added a modern touch but it had somehow destroyed the style of the pre-war architecture. It did not happen in Arab Street, and in addition to the textile shops, there are restaurants serving Middle Eastern food, backpackers lodgings and cafes that are relatively inexpensive in Singapore standard.
