"To All PRE PAID Tourists from Asia !" Surfers Paradise. Tip by Aquacraig
Surfers Paradise., Gold Coast: 7 reviews and 2 photos
On the Gold Coast pre paid tourist deals that are usually paid before departure will take you shopping in specially prepared shops designed just for you. These shops are in the outer areas and are away from the local shops where the prices are much cheaper.
We see bus loads of tourists taken by Asian tour companies to these outer locations daily.
These shops will pay a heavy commission to the tour operator to drive you there. This means the price will be more expensive for you.
ALSO DO NOT PAY MONEY TO WALK ON OUR BEACHES! OUR BEACHES ARE FREE!! Tour companies may charge you to go to the beach and walk to the water. This is FREE for everbody.
Unique Suggestions: Please ask if you can also shop in the local shopping centres and areas where the locals frequent. Ask your operator to do this for you. You will meet friendly locals who will sell you your requirements at usually cheaper prices.
Fun Alternatives: Ask to walk the streets of Surfers Paradise for some shopping.
Other good places to shop are; Australia Fair shopping centre, Pacific Fair shopping centre and Harbour Town shopping centre.
