Anyone know of additional flea markets apart from the China Square Central Flea Market?
Thanks!

I've seen many times a flea-like market in the street cluster behind SIm Lim Tower (Pasar Lane and the adjacent ones) but have now idea when it happens and whether it is something regular.

That is the place commonly known as Theives Market. It's been there or thereabouts since before I came here 3 decades ago. If you have something stolen from your flat on a Monday, chances are you can find it at theives market the following Saturday afternoon.

That's interesting and surprising if this still happens nowadays. One would expect secret police crawling the place.

It would have changed hands several times before it ever got there. :wink: Kinda like money laundering.
