Bras Basah Complex
What we say:
One of the rare things that isn't more expensive in Singapore is used books and you won't have to look hard to find them — they're all in the Bras Basah Complex.
Of the 20-some bookstores most sell a variety of new and used reading material, and you can pick up a paperback in gently used condition for as little as $2.
One of the best is the Evernew Bookstore on the ground level with a bargain bin priced at 3 for $5 and discounted travel guides, textbooks and children's books in the back of the store.
If these prices are still going to break your budget, Singapore's National Library is a short walk away and you can read there for free.
