Want to shop to your heart’s delight? You need not throw away your travel budget to indulge in your whims and fancies. There are flea markets, heartland shopping malls, even amazing duty-free shopping at Changi Airport that gives megamalls a run for their money. For a truly elevated retail experience, head to the pinnacle of luxury shopping, Marina Bay Sands. Fashionistas can make a pilgrimage to the iconic Louis Vuitton Island Maison, or get some arm candy at big-name watch stores such as Hublot, Omega, Bering and TAG Heuer.
Art connoisseurs can pick up your next favourite masterpiece at White Space Art Asia or LUMAS Photo Art Gallery at Paragon on Orchard Road (or check out this list of the best places to buy art in Singapore). Paragon’s also the mall to be for the latest and greatest in fashion and design, with brands such as Moschino and Versace taking up residence there.
