|Lotte World Duty Free shop|
Since this is a duty free shop, we have to give our passport details in order to get the free tax price. We took the lift up to 10th floor and when it opened up, the first sight that greeted us was of Chanel. This floor had a couple of sections. The first one is of international brands. I saw renowned international branded goods of Louis Vuitton, Chanel, Gucci, Prada, Bally, Ferragamo, Hermes, Coach, Burberry, Versace, Dunhill, Fendi, Celine, Loewe, Christian Dior, Polo, Lacoste, Nike, Reebok and Adidas. Some brands I hardly heard off while other I have no idea. The other section lof level 10 sells Korean products. I saw seaweed, kimchi, songi mushrooms, Korean liquor, tea, chocolate, traditional snacks as well as cosmetics of Korean brand like Hera and Seolhwasu, and Ginseng of the red insam type and tea and candy. Completed the selection are Amethyst, handicrafts, lacquer ware, poetry books, clothing and leather goods.
The shops were teeming with crowd with mostly Chinese from Mainland China. Most shops attendant can converse in Mandarin as most clientele were from China. Well, the price was above us or simply we have no need for these luxury item, so most of the time we spent just window shopping. The Chinese tourists seem to have a field days where everyone had couple of shopping bags in hand. Here are some pictures that I took at The Lotte World Duty Free Shop:
