If you're a hardcore bargain hunter who won't think twice about shopping through the night, then you most definitely must visit the Mustafa Centre.
Located in Little India's Syed Alwi Road, Mustafa Centre is almost always packed with Singaporeans and tourists alike. It's not hard to see why. The 24-hour shopping mall offers for sale almost any sundry item you can think of, on top of the usual range of clothes, bags and electronic gadgets — all at bargain-basement prices.
One section of the mall sells household appliances and jewellery; another focuses on electronic goods, footwear, clothes, and books. You'll find money changers a plenty, along with travel agencies and even a gold mart!
Mustafa Centre is most definitely not your typical fancy mall over at Orchard Road, but that is precisely part of its charm. This is as close as you'd get to the 'authentic Singapore', without venturing too far away from the central business district.
