Games consoles - where to buy

by Biscuitman

I'm visiting Funchal in December and am hoping to be able to buy a Nintendo Wii as they are sold out everywhere in the UK (available elsewhere in the EU but not here).

Has anyone got an idea where I can get one (how much?)and whether there are stock issues in Madeira as well.

If anyone knows stores that have websites that would be very helpful as well (just in case I need to preorder)

Thanks again

Biscuitman

Re: Games consoles - where to buy

by juNkiERD

Hi!

I don't know how is the stock in Madeira but I presume you will be able to buy it there because in Mainland Portugal the Wii console is still widely available (in shops and trough internet sites). Here it costs around 249€ (£170-175) and the price must be the same there. I think it comes with the sports pack.

In Funchal you can look for the Wii console in the "Worten" shop in one shopping centre called "MadeiraShopping".

This is the address:
Centro Comercial MadeiraShopping
Caminho de Santa Quitéria
9000 Funchal

You can also look for it in the biggest shopping centre "Forum Madeira" because there's another big shop there called "Radio Popular".

The address is:
Estrada Monumental Piornais
Loja 29, Piso 0
9000 Funchal

I guess you won't need these adresses because everyone will know how to give you the directions for both shopping centres.

You can also look for game consoles in the big supermarkets (we call them "hipermercados").


However my advice for you is to buy the console trough the Radio Popular website (http://www.radiopopular.pt/lojaOnline.php). One of the delivery options is to pick it up on one of their many shops in Portugal. I checked it now and they have it available in its shop in Forum Madeira.
But I have a doubt here. I don't know if it's possible for a foreigner to register and buy any product online trough that website. Therefore you should send them an e-mail to lojae@radiopopular.pt explaining your situation and asking if you can buy the console online or if there is any way to reserve the console for you (in case they turn sold out).
If they take too much time to answer it would probably be because they only expect e-mails written in portuguese lol. If that's the case I could help you with that later. Make another reply to this thread in case you need my help.

Nevertheless the chances for you to find the console in the shops in Funchal is still high but only if you are going there before Christmas. I cannot be so sure about the stocks after Christmas lol.

Have a nice stay!

Excellent news - thanks for that!

You can buy it easily on Madeira. Fnac have it on stock for sure.
But attention because the power plug that we use is the European 2 pin. So you have to use a adaptor to use back home.

Re: Games consoles - where to buy

by J_Antunes

Here in Lisbon I haven't seen it sold out anywhere. Last xmas I was going to buy a DS for my brother so i checked some stores and there were always plenty of Wii's. In Portugal Playstation and Microsoft have a lot of strenght and I guess Wii is still being seen as somewhat inferior to others. And the price, well it just doesn't fit most portuguese' purses.

Take care and have a nice trip!

Travel Tips for Funchal

Old Town Reflections ;-)

by sandysmith

Madeira suffers from microclimate - the clouds virtually always stay on the high peaks and can suddenly drop their vapour on unsuspecting tourists - like us! The up side is wandering around the old town when the sunshine returns and getting a nice reflection of the fishermen's chapel - reputed to be the oldest such building in Funchal.

Levada Nova

by sachara

We walked the Levada Nova along the valley.
You can walk to Faja and back. North of Faja it is not any longer possible to walk along the Levada do Curral, because of a fire in 1992.
The slopes of the Socorridos Valley are rather steep, so you can have a problem, if you have fear of heights.
At narrow parts of the levada are mostly fenches, but be careful, sometimes they are broken, like we found here.

Getting from the Airport to Funchal by Aerobus.

by Tricky_Dicky69

If you are a TAP ( Air Portugal ) passenger coming from Lisbon you can get on the Aerobus free of charge if you show the driver your boarding ticket. If you are not a TAP passenger you will have to pay on the bus. ( 5 Euros ) The Aerobus runs from right outside the terminal building - look to the right and you will see the stop which has a timetable on it. The buses are not that frequent and run about every hour and a half. Times are on the web-site.

The Aerobus runs right into Funchal and a couple of miles out to the west of town. ( Praia Formosa ) If you tell the driver the name of your hotel he will tell you which stop to get of at. Timetables are on all stops for your return journey.

Cable car to Monte

by chinotraveller

The cable car to monte is great value for money and you get some really good views over the city of Funchal. The ride llast about 15-20 mins and I am really pleased that I went on it I usually dont like anything like this but i really enjoyed this. The cable car doesnt come to a complete halt and therefor may be unsuitable for some disabled people. However it is not anymore difficult than getting on and off the moving walk ways that you get a many airports and was easier to get on than an escalator so my daughter informs me as she hates escalators.

Quinta Vigia - Austria's Empress Isabel "Sissi".

by Jerelis

It was quite a hike to get all the way up there, but once we arrived we were glad to be there. A bit of a disappointment was that our travel book said that the quinta should be open for the public from monday to Friday - from 09:00h to 17:00h, but we were definately not allowed to get in. Pretty weird huh? So, instead, we just walked around the quinta. The building work on this baroque and neaoclassic style quinta lasted throughout the 16th, 17th, 18th, 19th and 20th century. It is surrounded by parkland and overlooks the Port of Funchal and is one of the most famous quintas on the island.

Some celebrities have lived in this house, surrounded by the beautiful garden. Some of the most important people who lived here were Queen Adelaide of England, Austria's Empress Isabel "Sissi", the Archduke Maximiliano and the Prince of Oldenburg. The original quinta disappeared in the 1970s to make way for a hotel, which the Regional Government acquired in 1979. At that time all remaining buildings and the gardens were completely remodelled. Nowadays it's the official residence of the President of the Regional Government of Madeira.
