Souvenirs are a perfect way to carry some sweet memories of a place you have been to and we know you would agree with us on that. Same goes for Singapore! You will be more than happy to know that the place has a lot to offer and you would love to stock your bags with these goodies. Some of the famous things to shop for are Tiger balm, Merlion key chains, antique snuff bottles, Peranakan tiffin, jade carvings and vintage advertising signs. As Singapore is a well-known market for electronics, you will find several shops which have a fine collection of gadgets like MP3 Players, DVD, camera and more. All you have to do is just a little bit of hopping and you will be back with some amazing collection.

You can head to some famous markets like
Singapore Handicraft Centre, Chinatown, The Heritage Shop, Mustafa Center, Sim Lim Square and Lucky Plaza. Also, remember the fact that Singapore will reimburse tourists for the taxes they pay for their shopping. You'll be charged a Goods and Service Tax (GST) of 7%, but taxes on purchases above SG$100 can be reimbursed with little trouble. (Refer: Inland Revenue Authority of Singapore website)

Happy? Well, we heard you right!
