iggy has indicated that this thread is about Malaysia

Going to Singapore shortly for a few days then training up to KL. Is it cheaper to shop in Singapore or KL for clothes, camera gear etc ?

KL is generally cheaper - and you will have more time there to find what you want

Iggy,

It is definitely cheaper in KL than Singapore because of the exchange rates.

Enjoy your stay in Singapore and Kuala Lumpur,

KL is definitely cheaper for clothes and fashion accessories. As for camera gear and other electronic gadgets, its best if you check out the prices as certain items can be cheaper in Singapore and some are cheaper in Malaysia.

Check out FUNAN IT centre in Singapore - I've been told it has very good deals on electronics, cameras, etc. Or even Changi airport - a friend got an ipod there for less than it sells for in NA.

For clothes, KL has a designer shopping outlet somewhere on the outskirts of town - abercrombie, american eagle, cheap stuff... and apparently there are western sizes as well.
