Guam — Shopping and Leisure
Guam’s duty-free status makes it a great place to buy perfume, watches, electronics , jewelry, and alcohol at excellent prices. While there is no sales tax, there is still a four-percent tariff. There are plenty of duty-free stores on the island, and some large hotels even have their own.
If you are looking for designer goods, head to the large brand name outlets in Tumon Bay, Guam Premiere Outlets and Agaña Shopping Center, the two retail meccas. Tumon Plaza is in the heart of the entertainment district and part of the Outrigger Hotel complex. Farther afield lies Tumon Sands Plaza and Guam Premier Outlets. All major shopping centers have restaurants and movie theaters.
Guam is home to the largest K-Mart branch in the world, which is open 24 hours and it is among the smaller shopping centers on the island, together with Home Depot.
Flea markets are popular in Guam. Chamorro Village showcases locally made crafts, souvenirs and foods of the Chamorro people. Live cultural shows are also occasionally held here. Coconut Villa Gift Shop sells souvenirs and handmade items. Dededo Flea Market is situated in the village of Dededo on Marine Corps Drive. Here, you will find everything from local handicrafts to plants, clothing, jewelry, kitchen utensils, food, and more.
