Introduction

Tips & Information

Regular Sale Periods

Duty-free shops

Almost all establishments host regular sales on off-season products and these events usually fall around June to August and December to February the following year. During these periods, visitors can buy goods at bargain prices, and also receive additional benefits and discounts from certain brands, offered by respective duty-free shops.

Department stores

Department stores have regular off-season sale periods, and they occur every quarter (January, April, July, October) of the year. If you missed the special sales period, there are still plenty of chances as various stores also host special sales on national holidays, store foundation days, and individual brand sales.

Sizing

Most clothing sizes are measured in centimeters except for the waist, which is measured in inches. Shoe sizes are measured in millimeters.
