Mustafa Centre offers a unique 24-hour market style shopping experience in Singapore. You can find designer products in abundance and at low prices here, with everything from textiles to watches and electronics on sale. The mall is 2 department stores joined together with goods sold under the Mustafa name and streamlined by type.
One of the main attractions is the jewellery sections where gold can be picked up inexpensively – the centre is also a great place to buy Asian-inspired gifts to take back home. Accessories are brilliant buys, mostly hand made with an eclectic ethnic touch, from bags to costume jewellery that you won’t find anywhere else.
Shopping at Mustafa Centre is akin to shopping at an indoor market – narrow aisles jampacked with all manner of products. The mall is unlike a department store, in that there aren’t brand name shops but rather more outlets or units selling different label products, all under one roof.
Famous brand name items, though, are on sale usually at a much lower cost than at other malls. Additionally, there’s a vast assortment of Indian and other Asian speciality goods, including saris and food products. You might need to visit a couple of times to explore the whole mall – there is just so much to browse through.
There is also an excellent selection of cheap luggage should you need extra space for all your purchases.
