    Shopping Malls, souvenir shops: South Korea - Buying Souvenir

    by SLLiew Written Feb 7, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    In Seoul, there are plenty of Korean handicraft and cool green fine porcelain to choose from. We took a family picture at one of small stall in the underground shopping that was converted into a memorable mug made in Korea.

    What I particular like are the miniature lacquerware in the form of small cupboards and pencil size boxes that can be functional to put small items and really nice to look at.

    OK, the large medicine chest boxes of Korean design are also very tempting and make a fine living piece. Of course, have to pay for shipment.

    Most Asian will also buy the famous prized Korean ginseng to give folks back home.

    National Palace Museum: Taiwan - Buying Souvenir

    by SLLiew Written Feb 7, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    What to buy: At the National Palace Museum souvenir shop and similar shops at tourist attraction, there are so many Chinese art souvenir to select from.

    One that I picked was a mouse pad for my home computer showing a famous Chinese painting. Functional and attractive. Also on sale are bookmarks and refrigerator magnets of Chinese important work of bronzeware, fine china vases of intriguing shapes.

    Besides the traditional Chinese arts of different dynasties, there are also local aboriginal Taiwnese craft that is unique to Taiwan.

    by iam3xxx Written Apr 8, 2006

    Red Market which is situated within walking distance to where I was staying ( the Pousada de Mong Ha Hotel) is a great place to buy branded tees which come from the factory outlets where they are made. Labels include Agnes b and Polo can be found in these factory outlet clothing shops. You just need patience and time to search around. Good Luck!

    Arab Street: Local Shopping

    by lmkluque Updated Oct 13, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    In each of the countries there were streets or centers in the city that offered the tourist a sample of the local craft works. In Singapore, Arab Street had such shops. In Malaysia it was the Central Market that people flocked to. In Indonesia, such items could be found along the country roads and most interestingly in Jakarta, the top floors of a modern shopping mall building had merchandise from all over the country. I'd mention the name of the store, but it was burned out, during a riotous demonstration some years ago, by Indonesians asking for the recall of the President.

    Famili Optometrist: Essentials

    by lmkluque Updated Sep 13, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is a "spec shop" that I went to to get a new pair of glasses. It is usually advised that we bring an extra pair of glasses in case one is lost or broken. I didn't and of course I needed a new pair. The service was friendly, effecient and very helpful. I recommend that if you find an need for new glasses try this place.
