While you don’t need any specific reason to go shopping, well, the sky is blue today so you had to shop. But knowing where the best shopping spots are in a city or town helps you plan your day more easily. You spend less time scouring for the best products and just get to concentrate all your energy in shopping till you just can’t anymore (there is no such thing as such). If you are in Kuala Lumpur don’t stress over how you will reach this shopping haven. Board an express bus, buy tickets online and arrive in Singapore quite comfortably, without burning a hole in your pocket.
