So here are some tips to help you enjoy your stay and wisely spend your cash in Singapore!

  1. Seek for more shopping spots.

You can do a lot in just a couple of hours in Singapore since the city is small. The Orchard Road is famous for its high-class boutiques and the prices are closer to Western levels. Don’t worry though because there are still many stores such as Haji Lane which is the place to be for retro fashion and street chic. There’s also Little India if you seek for art, textiles, antiques, music and food.


  1. Bring a spare shopping bag with you.

Shopaholics are on their way! So don’t forget to take along with you one of those foldable bags because you never know when you get hooked to buy all the goodies you find on those great shopping bargains.

  1. Pre-teens shop at adult sections? Hell yes!

Everyone knows that Asian size is ‘petite’ and the type of clothes you find in the city very much agree with that. So if you have a 10-12 year old child, adult size shirts or pants will surely fit them.

  1. Always look out for dishonest salespeople.

Why? Although not common in Singapore but there may be some people who will either try to upsell you or tell you that they don’t have what you are looking for and sell you another product that’s closer to what you’re asking for. Obviously, they are trying to sell you products that are unfamiliar to you. So bring out that critical mind of yours if ever you encounter these types of salespeople as you go on with your shopping.

  1. Make a ready –list of models back home.

This is if you plan to purchase big-ticket items such as gadgets or any high-tech stuff. It is best if you do this to let you know the market prices of these products. If not, those ‘sales-predators’ will definitely haunt you.

  1. Always ask for receipts and check if the products you purchase come with international warranty.

Always check this feature before bargaining with shopkeepers most especially if you are in Singapore for a short time. You will also have problems with travel insurance because some of them do not cover lost items if you don’t have receipts. So keep them until you get home safely.
