hey anyone stopover to singapore for electronics?? Heard of Audio House at Liang courts? i heard is popular for tourist as the prices there are cheap and no worries of being cheated over there as they are under casetrust in singapore...
Where has cheap electronics too ??
Sim Lim Square (nearest MRT station Bugis) and Funan the IT Mall (nearest station City Hall) are where the locals head to. Sim Lim is where all the bargains are but it's a big place and kinda messy. Funan's more sterile and mall-like so little chance to bargain here.
I don't think many people actually go to audiohouse. CASE is our consumer association and you can report any errant/fraudulent shops to them, and also to the Singapore Tourism Board. STB also has a list of blacklisted retailers on their website http://www.visitsingapore.com/publish/stbportal/en/home/what_to_do/shopping/list_of_errant_retailers.html
Have fun shopping! You're right about people buying electronics here...few years back we had an international student congress here and nearly every single delegate left with either a digital camera or mobile phone, some even left with computers and laptops.
Sim lim ? i heard the prices there is ex! they jack up the prices there.. how true is it ??
Yea, they might well try to rip off an ang moh (westerners)... In my opinion you are better off going to Funan where things are alot more organised and less chaotic (and arbitrary)... Sim Lim was a bit overwhelming, even for me (having spent half my life in Singapore)
you heard it right. try mustaffa center in little india
I never buy any electronics goods aboard due to the warranty, you'll never know. Good luck.
I don't like Sim Lim for its messiness, makes me dizzy and nauseous whenever I go there. I dunno about jacking up prices, doesn't seem true according to my friends who swear by Sim Lim and nothing but Sim Lim. I do my electronics shopping at Funan where it's calmer. There are people who prefer Mustafa but that's another place that makes me nauseous. Warranty-wise most of my friends from overseas usually opt for international brands and international warranty when they buy something here.
but how's the prices there as compared to Audio house??? i heard the shops at funan is the same as Sim Lim too
if my memory serves me right... Mustaffa is cheaper than Sim Lim... both allow bargaining... for Funan I don't think you can haggle... the good thing in Singapore is that most items even bargained are not fake... or that's at least what I'm informed of..
i jus saw this in 1 of the forum.. 6-9 march IT show..
wat does IT show sells?? cameras??will be cheaper?? how grand it will be?? cheaper then sim lim square?
