Bugis Street Review
In its younger years, Bugis Street was the epitome of Singapore's seedy, but colorful nightlife, famous for the transvestite beauties who paraded its sidewalks; the government wasn't delighted, though, and the area was razed to make way for the Bugis MRT station. So strong was the outcry that Bugis Street has been re-created (but not really) just steps from its original site, between Victoria and Queen streets, Rochor Road, and Cheng Yan Place. The shophouses have been resurrected; hawker food stands compete with open-front restaurants. Closed to traffic, the streets in the center of the block are the places to find bargain watches and CDs; across the road is the Parco Bugis Junction, an upscale shopping center that's quite a contrast to all the area's dollar stores and souvenir shops.
