Every local knows Funan DigitaLife Mall as the go-to place for all computer and tech-related products. The prices might not be as competitive as its rival Sim Lim Square but what you get are credible retailers and helpful customer service. Head to electrical and IT mega-stores like Harvey Norman and Courts for one-stop shopping. If you’re a photography enthusiast, Fujifilm’s first digital camera studio, which opened here in 2013, carries an impressive range of digital cameras, while family-run business John 3:16 Photo Supplies has some of the lowest prices on camera bodies and lenses. Funan DigitaLife Mall is also one of the few malls that offers travellers instant tax refunds.
The City Hall area is where culture, entertainment, business and shopping meet. Set in the heart of the Civic District, it teems with national and cultural institutions noted for their architecture and heritage. Spend a leisurely day museum hopping (from the nation’s oldest, the National Museum of Singapore, to the newest, National Gallery Singapore, which opens late 2015); and gazing at gazetted monuments such as Chijmes and Saint Andrew’s Cathedral.
