Christmas comes a month earlier, and longer as well, for shopaholics at heart, as the Guam Visitors Bureau (GVB) brings back its signature-shopping event – the Shop Guam Festival (SGF). Recognized as the biggest shopping festival in the region, this year’s edition of the SGF is expected once again to thrill tourists visiting Guam once it kicks-off on November 1, 2015 to February 15, 2016.
As a highly anticipated event in Guam, it attracts thousands of tourists globally to take advantage of the extensive line-up of exclusive discounts and offerings from retail, dining, and optional tours establishments during this 107-day long festival.
In past years, Guam has transformed itself into a shopper’s haven with its growing number of international retailers that offer the latest in-season designs and all-year-round outlet store shopping. A favorite activity for Filipino travelers, irresistible shopping deals are not hard to come by when visiting Guam as it offers a wide variety of outlet stores and international retailers at the Guam Premier Outlets, Agana Shopping Center, JP Superstore, and Micronesia Mall. Luxury shoppers, on the other hand, can also find their favorite brands, at lower prices, at the Tumon Sands Plaza, The Plaza, and T Galleria – all located along Tumon Strip.
On top of it’s duty-free and outlet store shopping offering, Filipinos can also further maximize their retail therapy in Guam, during the festival period, with the SGF coupon booklets for hundreds of exclusive deals, which they can avail across the island. This year’s coupons include special offers for shopping, food, attraction and discounts for other on island establishments.
A major part of Guam’s over-all experience, shopping truly complements the island’s neo-island lifestyle that offers the right mix of laid-back cultural island living with a modern luxurious feel – making it a perfect weekend and holiday getaway for tourists.
Located West of the Pacific, US island territory of Guam is only three-and-a-half hour away from Manila, via Philippine Airlines and United Airlines.
