Singapore Shopping

If you haven’t realized it, Singapore is expensive! If your coming to visit from the U.S., buy the brand names there and save money.  There are good bargains to be had but for the typical luxury items, prices can be 30% higher here even after the exchange rate. This is why we treat our family members and friends so well when they want to visit – because they have space in their luggage to bring Crazy Shirts, Costco merchandise, or clothes from Nordstroms (I’ll let you figure out who shops where in my house). But like most of these pages, I have found good places for specialty items and fi I don’t list them, I’ll never remember!
