To travel is to live, learn, and discover new things. The places you’ll see, the delicious food you’ll get to try, and of course-- the shopping! Admit it, you love shopping too! Lol. I was in Taiwan last week for Ever Rich Duty Free x Lions Travel. I’ve been to Taipei a couple of times so I do have an idea of what the shopping is like there (it’s awesome!) but I never really got to experience what it was like shopping inside the flagship store of Ever Rich. Be prepared for what you’re about to learn because it’s life changing!
Ever Rich Taipei Downtown Duty Free Shop is located at No. 129, Jinzhuang road, Taipei City, Taiwan, and before we started our 5-day tour, we had a mini press conference wherein I was invited to go on stage. Whew!
On the 5th floor they have a dining and afternoon tea service so you can relax and pig out after all the walking. Ever Rich Jewelry flagship shop can also be found here and all the pieces are designed with Taiwan theme, which makes them the perfect gift for your loved one back at home. You’ll also find a lot of paintings and art on this floor.
With more than 500+ brands (local and international), this giant building is a must-visit shopping destination in Taipei. It features a diverse range of duty free products from alcohol and tobacco to fashion, luxury, beauty, food, etc. Name it, they’ve got it!
The best news? Once purchased, you don’t have to carry the items with you. You can just pick it up at the airport upon departure. They have several pick up counters depending on your departure gate so it’s hassle free. My tip is to just bring a small luggage as your hand carry so you can put everything inside! Dami mo pang extra baggage allowance so you can shop in Taiwan more. PAK! Shop without having the hassle of bringing everything with you the entire time.
At the airport, I couldn’t decided what shops to visit because there were so many options. Nicole and I also wanted to go to the lounge to get some rest and chill for a bit. We’re only economy passengers but yes, we can go to the lounge because it’s FREE for everyone! Can you believe they have 14 new waiting lounges? Each lounge has a different theme creating a local image to the nation to showcase Taiwan’s unique culture.
Since it’s the last place people step in before leaving Taiwan (kind of obvious, I know), Ever Rich commissioned Golden Melody Award winning lyricist Fang Wen-shan to write the Airport Song ~ On the Road, the title characters for which were written by famous calligrapher Zhu Chen-nan to let departing passengers take away warm and fond memories of Taiwan.
We also got to try really good oolong tea and their pineapple tarts! Now I'm craving for one.
Ever Rich will continue to be responsible for the cleanliness and maintenance of not only their shops but all the public facilities inside the airport. Personally, I think they’re doing an awesome job! They’ve really gotten to know what everyone wants, based from all the shops, whether it be for personal use or pang pasalubong.
To be honest though, I’m always in a rush when I’m at the airport. Once I pass immigration, the only thing I can do is eat before boarding time (and a little shopping lol). That’s the reason there’s Ever Rich Duty Free —you’re welcome to do shopping as long as you can confirmed flight e-ticket and passport. Now this is what you call luxury service.
