Sale at Changi?
Passing through Changi airport in Singapore this evening, I see a promotion for a wind-up radio. But the price is very high compared to other parts of Asia. Likewise, the price of cameras on e-bay and internet shops was hundreds of euros cheaper than the cheapest price at the malls along Orchard Road. Singapore is no longer the gadgets paradise it once was. Clothes are cheaper than in Europe, but US is still the cheapest by a long mark.
