Håfa Adai! That is Guam’s version of welcoming you to this U.S. island territory in Micronesia, all 160,000 plus people living in this Western Pacific paradise of tropical beaches, Chamorro villages, world-famous sunsets and ancient latte-stone pillars. These are just a few reasons why millions of tourists have made Guam their top travel choice. The one other preference for visiting Guam? Shopping!

I was there last year and I can only say this is the nearest near-shore USA you can be when it comes to shopping. Their duty-free shops has one of the best selections of branded items with racked-down prices. Kmart’s there, too. And Ross? I just found out while there that Guam has the biggest Ross outlet.

So, this year, Guam Visitors Bureau’s Philippine rep office and head-honcho Carmel Carpio sent me a message saying there’s a mobile app now available for the sole purpose of helping you shop better while in Guam. The official Shop Guam app now brings over 230 offers from 178 vendors at your fingertips, from an exciting array of deals on luxury and popular brands, fine and casual dining, optional tours, entertainment, beauty, spa, tourism services, and much more. As a bonus, the Shop Guam e-Festival’s exclusive deals on Made in Guam products and Only on Guam activities will further enhance your experience, all through the Shop Guam app.

Guess what? The Shop Guam app is intuitive. It automatically alerts a shopper of a special offer whenever he or she is within a 40- to 50-meter range of a participating vendor. Browse the Events section of the Shop Guam app for in-store events at selected vendor locations and use the app to enter the Shop Guam e-Festival Sweepstakes for a chance to win a Guam travel package valued at $1,000USD!

This year’s Shop Guam e-festival includes exclusive offers from Balenciaga, Chloé, Givenchy, Marc Jacobs, LeSportSac, Lacoste, and Rimowa, to name just a few of them.

The Shop Guam app is FREE to download and is available in six languages: English, Japanese, Korean, Russian, Traditional Chinese and Simplified Chinese.

So, download the Shop Guam App now and start planning your shopping spree in paradise. From December 1, 2016 to February 4, 2017, share your Shop Guam experience by tagging your photos with #ShopGuameFestival.
