Singapore shopping

It’s easy to be captivated by the bright lights and luxury brands of Orchard Road. But if you’re seeking pieces that are a bit more unique, there are plenty of little-known shops around Singapore. The trendy enclave of Haji Lane in the city’s Arab Quarter has excellent independent boutiques alongside striking street art. Here are the best stores along the brightly coloured strip.


This quaint boutique features a range of eclectic, vintage treasures sourced locally and from the owner’s travels around the world. Dulcetfig only stocks small quantities of its jewellery, dresses, bags and paper goods.
