Carpark rates in Singapore’s shopping districts are crazy! Don’t even get us started on the ERP. Trying to find a cheap carpark rate around places like Orchard Road is like trying to find water in the desert! If you’re a driver, or at least know a driver, you’d often hear them lamenting about carpark rates in Singapore.

Wah lau eh! Just top up cashcard only then must top up again!

Sounds familiar? [Heh] But despite all our whining, the carpark rates are probably not going to go down – or at least not in the near future.

That is why it is time to rebel against the system! As fellow consumers, and more importantly drivers, we want cheaper carpark rates and we will get it by seeking out the cheapest ones around Singapore’s shopping districts! So if you’re onboard the cheap carpark rate movement and want to shop with a peace of mind, then here are some carparks around popular shopping districts you should definitely keep a lookout for.

The area around Plaza Singapura is in my good books. The carpark rates are not too obscene but it can be better. Luckily, most of the parking locations with cheap carpark rates are conveniently located within a walking distance of Plaza Singapura and other shopping outlets around the Bras Basah neighbourhood.

Although a distance from the Orchard Road shopping district, carpark rates of malls and attractions around the Suntec City area are still a tad pricey. You can consider parking in these locations if you intend to explore nearby attractions like the Marina Bay Sands or the Esplanade. It might take a little walking though, but hey, at least you saved a meal’s worth on parking!

Located right in the middle of Orchard Road and the Suntec City shopping districts is Bugis. Bugis is home to a variety of shopping outlets. There’s even Bugis Street nearby which is often compared to Thailand’s Chatuchak shopping district. Sadly, Bugis is not immune to expensive carpark rates either so here are some of parking spots nearby that provide cheaper carpark rates.
