Temple Street

Orientation & Geography

Asia, Hong Kong, Hong Kong

This is definitely the place to bargain, and we recommend bargaining hard. You will likely see the same merchandise in several different stalls as you walk from one to another, so you might want to check out several stands to get a feel for the prices and types of merchandise. The market is not very large, so you can always go back.

Bugis Street

Asia, Singapore, Central Singapore Community Development Council

This is a great place to buy souvenirs.
