From alleyways to sailors' haunts, Bugis Road has transformed to become a highly urbanized and sophisticated area. Stores have been restored, and new shopping complexes and office tower blocks have been erected, thus making it possibly one of the best known places in Singapore. Although highly modernized, efforts have been made to ensure the area's Old World charms are not taken away. Small shops line the streets selling everything from electronic items to clothes. With the addition of Bugis Junction, a trendy mall, you will definitely enjoy the fascinating mix of old and new cultures blended together.
