Hiper Hiper: Cheapest place in town

What makes it special are it's prices.

On repeated visits to Andorra over years for skiing I have consistently found this place to be the cheapest place in town for booze, fags, electical and just about anything else this place sells form umbrellas to snowboards.

If it was a menagarie it would sell everything from Aardvarks to Zygotes.

update 2014 : As far as I can work out, the place is now called simply 'hiper andorra'

What to buy: Spirits (especially whiskey) is the obvious choice.

Perfumes are also good value - see other tips.

What to pay: Whiskey can be as low as 3 Euros a bottle - but it's Spanish and on the rough side.

you can definetly get a reasonable bottle for under 10 Euros

Address: Main road in Andorra la vella (Escaldes engordany)

Directions: Head up the hill towards el tartar from the centre of town. It's on your left as it starts going uphill.

Just because it has a kilt on.... - Andorra

Just because it has a kilt on....

Many places: Don't end up with paintstripper

n/a

What to buy: When buying Whisky in Andorra be very careful to see where it is made.

Sometimes bottle can look very "Scottish" with the logo and typeface used but the stuff inside has never been near Scotland in it's life.

The Same applies to other drinks like Gin , but, the the quality is usually not quite so distinguishable from the real stuff.

What to pay: very variable - don't buy too cheap !

Perfumeria - Andorra
Gala Perfumeries: Perfumeria

This chain seems to be everywhere in Andorra. They actually have about 30 outlets.

Prices are very similar or the same in each store but what differs is the "freebies" they give away. Last time, in february, I received a BOSS suit holder just for one purchase of aftershave.

What to buy: Prices here are better than duty free - so buy up perfume / beauty sets for yourself and for gifts.

What to pay: Save about 40% compared to UK high-street prices

Address: all over Andorra la vella and elsewhere in Andorra

Theme: Bath and Beauty
