With a reputation for the gathering of transgender women which took place every night, between the 1950s and the 1980s, it has then been redeveloped to become a modern complex with a variety of shops, restaurants, bars and clubs.
Today, the main tourist attraction in Bugis is the street market. Here visitors can expect to find almost anything you could possibly want at a bargain price. The prices are mostly fixed, so the vendors don’t try to rip you off! and you don’t have to rely on your negotiation skills to get a good price. You can buy anything from CDs and T-shirts to jewellery and shoes. It can get a bit on the crowded side so just make sure you keep a close eye on any valuable items you may be carrying on you.
