Abu Dhabi duty free - good electronics?


Recommended Posts

Hi all,


I am flying through Abu Dabhi on my way to BKK in a few weeks. Thinking of getting

a video camera, and am wondering if anyone has gone through the duty free there

recently and if there are any good deals? .... I was a bit annoyed (with myself) a few weeks

back, I had bought a small digital camera in the UK for 350, then saw the same one in

Duty Free form Brussels for 200 only two weeks later!!! ... dont *exactly* want to pass up

any good bargains if there are any to be had :GrinNod1: ... so any recent travellers thru

that airport got any words of wisdom / bagged any bargins?

I don't know about bargains in electronics, but I noticed that they are charging well over UK retail for Rolex watches. Doesn't bode well !

The only bargains I found were in the pharmacy and 1 litre bottle of water in the caff !!

to be honest, for electronic goods i'd recommend to buy them online. probably work out cheaper! :D

I passed through AD airport last month, didnt look too cheap to me, PS3's were more expensive than in Pattaya.

Video cameras are cheap enough in Pattaya, visit Tuc.com on Pattaya South Road, they have 5 or 6 shops in there

selling them.

    • For those that don't know, I did Friday meetings before many years ago,  I feel like we are missing a regular meeting for members,  I am aware guys meet at PA affiliated bars. But I want to start meeting people again, I'm inviting the guys following my YouTube also.

      The meetings is a chance to get to meet each other,  I plan to be at every meeting, I also have Dean from Dive bar that has offered to help out with a crawl after.
      The meetings will be  Monday  6 pm - 8 pm each week.  (The improvised bar crawl will commence at 8 p.m.  Dean will make his own plans for that.)

      Due to low numbers of people in town, I will start the meetings in our bars to help our girls and managers, please check back often incase things are changed.  I will be sharing the love around town later, but Soi 6 is first on my list (including bars that are friendly competition)   
      If bar owners want us to have a meeting at their bar,  they need to have a minimum of 10 girls.  I'm not dragging people to empty bars for favours.
      Please help us invite other members, it takes a while to get momentum.
      Monday 6 pm - 8pm  (then bar crawl after)
      21st March - Playpen Soi 6
      28th March - Night wish bar Soi 6
      4th April - Toy Box bar Soi 6
      11th April - Repent Soi 6
