Bus to Bugis Junction from Mandarin Gallery
Bugis Junction Mall
Considered to be one of the most colourful and vibrant shopping mall, this mall is divided into two sections one is the Indoor department and the other is the Open Air Shopping Street. Thanks to these two sections, the mall is a combination of a street market and an air-conditioned shopping hub combined. The mall is well connected by road and is quite accessible from the centre of Singapore.
The mall has been strategically designed to make the most of the daylight available. The mall features more international brands compared to local brands. This will surely help people looking forward to have wardrobes as per the recent fashion trends. Global brands like Converse, Lewis, Desigual and Adidas offer some great discounts here. If you feel that the mall is going to be a costly affair compared to the open street market outside that might not be the case as the mall also offers some flash sales. The usual food outlets like KFC, McDonalds also cater to people here. If you are a movie lover, the mall has a state of the art modern and futuristic theatre on its top level. Instead of locals, tourists and office goers looking forward to buy things in abundance mostly visit the mall. Apart from international brands, the mall is also home to some local brands that are known to sell a great variety of clothing at affordable rates. I would recommend you to visit the mall on a weekday, as it is quite crowded on the weekends. The mall is open from 10:00 am to 10:00 pm – seven days a week.

Also known as, the Meritus Shopping Arcade, Mandarin Gallery Shopping Complex is beautifully lit at night. This Mall is sure to set you back by several dollars and make a whole in your pocket. The shopping complex is directly to the Mandarin Orchard Hotel. However, small and just six storeys tall the mall only features premium luxury brands like Just Cavalli and Marc Jacobs. These outlets also keep only the highest and merchandise on display. From some of the best international fashion brands and accessories, the mall caters to affluent crowds. The mall offers premium luxurious shopping from 50 branded outlets. The mall is compact, has mostly visitors getting a shopping experience. There is only one local home grown brand here, which is the Ashley Isham on the second floor of this hotel. There are also some restaurants that will offer you a fine dine experience. You will also come across some shops here that sell diamond encrusted phones. The remarkable point of some of the outlets here is that they are spread across 6 floor including duplexes.
