Duty Free Shopping in Shanghai

Henning Schwarzkopf von der CHEURAM Consulting Group aus Shanghai berichtet, dass die beiden Flughäfen der Stadt, Hongqiao (Inland) und Pudng (international) die günstigtsen Angebote für Zigaretten und Kosmetikartikel bietet, insbesondere im Vergleich zu Hongkong, Tokio und Singapur.

Das gilt allerdings nicht für Luxuswaren aus Leder. Dort haben Honglong und Singapur die Nase vorn.

Beware, shopaholic travelers, this post might just cause a change of plans to  your next trip. For anyone who can resist the temptation — read on.

Shanghai is claiming its two city airports — Hongqiao and Pudong International — offer the best bang for your  buck when it comes to duty-free shopping, Oriental Morning Post reported today.

This news was announced yesterday in Shanghai at the China Airport Non-Aeronautical Revenue Summit 2011.

The summit also revealed that a new duty-free shopping space is being planned  for Hongqiao Airport’s T1 terminal, which is currently under renovation.

Star sell: cigarettes

“The duty-free products in Shanghai airports are sourced internationally  without any middlemen,” said an anonymous employee from Sunrise Duty Free, which  manages the duty-free shopping space in Shanghai airports.

The source further explained that they had compared their prices with those  in Hong Kong International Airport, Tokyo Narita International Airport and Singapore Changi Airport, and could confirm that Shanghai  offers the lowest average price for duty-free shopping in Asia.

One star sell in Shanghai is Zhonghua cigarettes. The high-end Chinese  ciggies are pegged at RMB 300 per bar (10 packs) at the airport, but RMB 450 in  any retailing stores in downtown Shanghai.

The aforementioned employee admitted that their airport stores run out of  Zhonghua cigarettes almost every day.

Cheaper cosmetics but pricier leather goods

“The cosmetics in Shanghai airports are cheaper than most those in most  overseas airports or normal duty-free shops,” advised a flight attendant  surnamed Wu, who works on international routes for a Shanghai-based carrier.

However, a travel guide surnamed Liu emphasized that Hong Kong or Tokyo  airports still sport cheaper luxury goods, such as leather products by  Ferragamo, Gucci, Burberry, Coach or Bally.
