Fu Lu Shou Complex has five above-ground levels. It is bordered by Rochor Road, Queen Street, Waterloo Street and the pedestrianised Albert Street, which separates it from Albert Centre. The mall is especially crowded during weekends and in the lead-up to big Taoist festivals, when shoppers converge here for prayer paraphernalia.
Some of the stores also have shrines integrated to them. They include a shrine for the Four-Faced Buddha, a Singapore "branch" of the famous Erawan Shrine of Bangkok.
Take the East West MRT Line to the Bugis MRT Station. Take Exit C and then cross Victoria Street, continue north and then cross Queen Street, to reach the shopping mall.
