Hello there. Reading the threads i get the impression that the best place to do duty free shopping in Villa is a place called Feng Kiu ? Can any of you tell me, is it easy to find ? Are there any others that you guys could recommend . Thanks for any advice . ( Yep reading this forum gets you so much more excited about the holiday that lies adhead)Hi Sandi,
Fung Kuei's has a reputation of being the cheapest for alcohol & ciggies, but some of the others may have a bigger range of perfumes and electronics.Hi Sandi
Hi SandiAgreed. Fung Kuei is the last shop on the left (the water side). Alcohol is great, but they had a very limited range of perfume. They had some watches and other gear. Jewellery rather limited. For these go to either Downtown Duty Free or Paris Duty Free.
Following up on Geoff's comments, we noticed last week that some of the other duty free shops were only fractionally more expensive that Fung Kuei. On some items the difference was one dollar per bottle. They are still the first choice for liquor and all the smokers I spoke to said that Fung Kuei was the best value.
I guess the point I am making here is that Fung Kuei is the recommended first stop but if they are out of stock of your preferred item then you aren't going to pay too much more at some of the other stores.
As Geoff said, others may have a better range of perfumes and electronics.
Hi Sandi,hi is there a web page to have a look at for the fung kuie shop cos i cant find it anywhere. thanks heaps if you no it. michelle
Fung Kuie Is A Great Duty Free Shop, I Received An Email From Them Saying They Now Have A Large Stock Of Wallets And Handbags In At Great Prices So Take A Look.
The best shop for alcohol was one that was simply a bottle shop... It's on the street with the rest of the duty free shops, on a corner. We went there after buying ours elsewhere and were suprised that yes, it did get even cheaper.I think I know the shop you mean. Is it on the right-hand side as you come from the ship? When we checked it out the prices weren't great. There is another duty free shop (not Down Town, but close to it) where we noticed that one or two brands of alcohol our group was interested in were a dollar or so cheaper than at Fung Kuei. Overall though, Fung Kuei was better when we checked them out in March and again in May last year.
Don't buy anything the first place you see it, wait and go back later!
