As with many regions, there are plenty of options available for those staying in Port Vila hotels when it comes to shopping. The area has everything from daily supplies to gifts for family and friends at home. Visitors should note that most of the small shops will only take cash, and many will close for a siesta.

Duty Free Shopping

There are a number of duty free shops in the region where luxury items such as wines, spirits or Champagne can be purchased alongside inexpensive souvenirs. Local stores also offer good prices on these items if visitors prefer not to shop in the duty free stores. Duty free shops are located in the main shopping areas. Avoid purchasing DVDs and CDs, as these are often copies.

Gift Shopping in Port Vila

Those who wish to purchase items to take home as gifts will find that there is plenty of choice. Many of the shops sell items such as French perfumes, sarongs, jewellery and hand-printed T-shirts. Art and craft items are available at one of the many markets, open from dawn to mid afternoon, dotted around the region, although when cruise ships pay a visit prices often rise. The area is known for items such as handcrafted wood figurines, art and bamboo flutes.

Port Vila Chinatown

There is a variety of shops located in the Chinatown district. These sell items such as religious paraphernalia, electrical equipment and clothes, and there are plenty of restaurants for those who want something to eat.
