    Is there an equivalent street in Sing?

  2. hanneng says:

    Yenjai, not really an equivalent street in Singapore, you may find one or two shops, but hard to spot them

    Sim Lim Square used to be heaven for prirated DVD/CD, but now no more.

    If shops selling Fake goods such as LV, CK .. very soon you will see the news, because was raided for selling fake goods.

    Great take on the theme. We lived in Korea for 2 years and saw lots of those fake goods. Never took photos, though.

    SRP, remember to bargain, at least ask for 50% OFF from the quoted price.
