Andorra Tourist Traps

  • Poor quality pictures

    Many of my pictures taken in Andorra are of poor or very poor quality for the simple reasons: my poor Soviet Smiena 8M camera I used that time and too large contrast between bright white snowy background and even a bit darker objects. It maybe a tourist trap for every ambitious photographer, especially as click-click addicted amatour as I am now...

  • After purchase there is no money...

    After purchase there is no money refund, you only get a credit coupon for new purchase in the same store.I tried to cancel the purchase of the digi-cam, one hour after leaving the store. It took me a long time to find an English-speaking service worker, the manager refused to see me, and they refused to get the digi-cam back and give me money...

  • Not all the country is duty-free !!

    Andorra la Vella is the capital and only real town of the principality. Its main pre-occupation is retailing duty-free elrctronics and luxury goods.The suburbs and localities around ARE NOT DUTY-FREE !!When you reach Andorra for the first time with your car, from Spain (what I did) - you cross suburbs and localities located southern to Andorra la...

  • Andorra La Vella - with the...

    Andorra La Vella - with the very modest exception of the Barri Antic district - and Escaldes are both tourist traps insofar as both are essentially big shopping centers that seem to be perrenially under construction. You will never see more cranes per square inch, and hear more jackhammers per second, than in these two towns during the day. (One...

  • Andorra is a duty free state...

    Andorra is a duty free state with only 2 main roads in. One via France and one via Spain. Each of these has a 'Bordertown' crammed with Booze and ciggy shops. Electronics abound. Bewere! The French customs don't challange you at the Border crossing. They wait in a big van at the bottom of the pass and tend to ignore all French plates and go...

    Shops are the greatest tourist trap in Andorra but remember: almost all shops may be closed at 13.30-15.00 as they rest at siesta time. Not because it too warm this time but it seems like tradition :)

    STARS is a flamencoid (pseudo-flamenco-ish.) club in Andorra La Vella. It's EXPENSIVE, and the entertainment is.....embarrassing. It caters mostly to French senior citizens who expect 'Typical Spanish' while having their sensitivities unscathed. Just Spanish enough basically. The club's owner dancing flamenco in drag is an image that has been...

Its a great place to be but I just wish I were a millionary so I could buy some more of the stuff they sell there..... THE PHOTO: A...

    Of course, buy more than you really need and pay,perhaps, more than you could be paied in your owncountry. Be careful, it´s easy to lose your headwhen everybody is spending lot of money around you!!

    This is not really a trap...rather an advice. Things you buy in Andorra are taxfree, so think about that when you buy something. If the price is the same or just a tiiiny bit lower then it is back home, then you are being ripped off. Just so you know.
