If you are looking for a book, office supply or supply for art, bras basah is the place to go. The build is a bit old conpared to the one nearby but has its own charm.

Not a lot to see. Cloths are all four locals if you are a small size. Some massage shops I would find other centres to shop at. Lot of local restaurants around area. Could be worth a visit.
