Shopping at Duty Free Fiesta Mall.

During the 90s, I'd say going to Duty Free Philippines was more associated with balikbayans because traveling in and out of the country was mainly for business or visiting family. The only reason I am familiar with it is because my family travels often when I was younger and despite the availability of products abroad, we still make it a point to visit Duty Free when we get to the Philippines to buy products that would occupy too much space and weight in our luggage like chocolates, snacks, and canned goods (hello Palm corned beef and Spam!)

But now that traveling for vacation is quite common nowadays, I think you guys should check out what Duty Free has to offer after your trip. You would be surprised to see brands such as Kate Spade, Pandora, Lacoste, Longchamp, Coach, and Mac Cosmetics in prices much lower than boutiques and malls. They also have Japanese and Korean beauty products there as well as Nike, Adidas, and other sports and leisure brands. Ang dami talaga!

So read on and I'll give you a virtual tour of Duty Free Fiesta Mall.

Before anything else, it's important to know who can shop at Duty Free Fiesta Mall. If you're a regular tourist, you have 48 hours from your arrival to shop.  If you're a balikbayan or an overseas Filipino worker, you have 15 days upon arrival to shop and if you arrive during the Christmas season (between November 15 and January 15), your shopping privilege is extended to 30 days.

Just present your passport at the Customer Registration Counter and they'll give you a shopping card which you will present when paying for items inside Duty Free.

Check the Shopper's Guide Directory beside the counters so you can plan where to go.

The first section I visit is the Perfumes and Cosmetics Section. They have Asian brands now such as CosRX, April Skin, Purederm, and Missha.

Opposite it is the Home Furnishings Section. They have Corelle sets, cast iron pans, and outdoor grills there and the Christmas decors are already on sale!

The next section we visit is the Liquor Section.  The prices are competitive and they have a lot of gifts and giveaways for every purchase. There's also a Tasting Bar so you can sample liquor before you buy it.

And here comes our favorite.. the Chocolates and Gourmet Section! Avail of their good deals, especially bundle packs or the ones with giveaways.  And check out the limited edition products like the humongous Toblerone bar and Oreo variants only available abroad.

And here's the section I was telling you about earlier.. The Fashion Walk.  There are so many brands here I love and use so I'll just let the photos do the talking.

So that's the whole of the second floor. T and I take the ramp to the first floor towards the Toys and Sports Section.  There are more Nike and Adidas shoes and apparel here as well as TOMS shoes.  After that is the Appliance Section and the Supermarket.  Before leaving, don't forget to check the Go Lokal store featuring Malagos Chocolate, Auro Chocolate, Theo & Philo Artisanal Chocolates, Manila Chocolatier, and Risa Chocolates.  These chocolates have bagged awards abroad and we're proud to say that they are all Pinoy products.

Thank you Duty Free Philippines for the tour and to Mayen, Malou, and our pretty guide during our walkthrough.  Until our next visit!
