6. Watches and Jewellery
Watches and jewellery must be part of Singapore’s Top 10 with more choices than anyone could make in five lifetimes. Masterfully handcrafted timepieces, world famous watch manufacturers and affordable standard watches can be found in every shopping district of Singapore.
Many visitors find that Singapore’s national inventory of jewelry is simply mind-boggling. Inexpensive bangles to million-dollar crown jewels are all available for a price. You could practically say that the streets of Singapore are lined with gold, as every shop has jewelry and watches for sale.
A known haven for affordable watches is shop called Prestige located at the Bras Basah Complex. Here, the storekeeper will even help you choose which watch suits you the most, and which one falls within your budget.
Another place where you can find budget-friendly watches is at The Bencoolen, located near Sim Lim Square. Many shops here sell low to mid-range watches, so this option is perfect for tourists who are travelling on a shoestring.
As for jewelry, Mustafa Centre is still the go-to place for all sorts of gold accessories, from necklace to earrings, bangles, pendants and chains. This place is open 24 hours, so you can shop any time you want. You can definitely get good prices for gold jewelry here and other Singapore stores, because the government removed all sales taxes and also gives generous tax refunds.
