Singapore is not a cheap place to visit and this is not a must see market, I would recommend China Town of some of the local arcades for cheap tourist type junk, if your looking for some brand names head to Orchard Rd

This used to be where stolen goods were brought to be sold, now just a flea market and soon to be developed. Now only an historical point, unless you want to buy second hand stuff

Behind the simple setup lies a place full of charm and history, all sorts of knick knacks and old gold can be found as long as you are patient enough to sift through the other junk. Hang around long enough and you might even found...More

It's a flea market. Old people old stuff. A unique history of Singapore. Soon by July 2017 the thieves market have to stop operating. Catch one last time before it's all gone. A sight of Singapore that you don't see
