Changi Airport to Bugis, Singapore


In its pre-world war days, Bugis had been somewhat of a red light district where Japanese prostitutes gathered business, and the ongoings through Bugis Street itself had, later on, been immortalized in the 1995 movie titled Bugis Street that encapsulated the textured past of this now-iconic part of Singapore. In this fast-paced city, Bugis is charismatic and timeless: a seamless blend of the old and the new.

The Old

Temples are scattered throughout Singapore, with the famous ones lined up in Little India and Chinatown as semblances of ethnic values. Here in Bugis, the Kuam Im Thong Hood Cho Temple is built in dedication to the Goddess of Mercy - Guan Yin, otherwise Avalokitesvara. It is believed that worshippers who pray in this temple would be blessed with good luck, and though the temple is relatively compact, it does not lack in terms of intricate architecture. During the Chinese New Year (Lunar New Year), devotees would bring forth and present their incense to Guan Yin in hopes of kick-starting the new year on an auspicious note.

The New

A combination of effortlessly chic and painstaking preservation, the Bugis Haji Lane is the hipsters’ watering hole. Unique clothing are found within the stylish boutiques housed within refurbished shoplots, and a fashionable crowd often peruse the lanes before moving on to the trendiest bars along the lane. For a modern experience in Bugis, this lane will most likely become your second home!

The Local Choice

If bars and hipster fashion aren’t for you, the local Bugis Village may offer you a slightly more authentic tourist experience. With stalls that are packed next to each other selling keepsakes and other flea market goods, Bugis Village is a loud and bustling enigma that could appeal to your wandering eye. It is easily located, too, as it is right across the street upon exiting Bugis Junction!
