Conveniently located around the Bugis MRT station, it was easy to get there and not really that far from my apartment near Orchard road. Bugis Village or "Bugis Street" is an indoor market on the corner of Rocher Road and Victoria Street.
Coming out the back side of the market, onto Queen street there were fruit stalls along the street. As we are in the middle of Durian Season the smell was intense as the "King of Fruits" as they are known, were for sale at quite a few stalls. This particularly oderous fruit is very stinky indeed but the flesh is prized by many here in Singapore - (myself not being one of them). For a particularly humerous description of Durian click the button below to be directed to blogger Tony Mortlock's take on the "King of Fruits".
Down the middle were cart stalls giving you plenty of stuff to look at. Bedazzled mobile (cell) phone covers seemed to be a big favorite lol!
As you walked around the stores on the insides you could see the interesting way the buildings old and new came together. Here you can see the roof line on the top right and a little bit top left.
On top of this roofline is the glass roof. Inside became a modern mall with lots of great stores. Loved it!
Further down the street were two temples. Kwan Im Thong Hood Cho Temple is a Buddhist Temple and the Hindu Sri Krishan Temple. Outside the temples a few stalls selling flowers, offerings and joss sticks for temple goers.
