Travelling abroad can be a pretty exciting time for anyone. You get to experience different cultures and see all the things other countries have to offer. Of course, travelling abroad also means you get to cash in on all the items that aren’t available in Malaysia.

If you’ve ever gone on a shopping spree during your holiday abroad, here are some things you would be able to relate to!

 

1. When you pack bags within bags to prepare for all the things that you’re going to bring back

You bring a whole new meaning to packing luggage. Literally!

But of course, before packing to go somewhere, you actually need to book a flight first, right?

Pro tip: If you’ve got a UnionPay Debit Card, you can book Air Asia flight tickets at a way cheaper price!

Book your flights anywhere from now to January 2019, but hurry as the promo only lasts until February 2018!

 

2. You cramp your belongings to make sure your luggage is at least HALF empty

Which means you end up stuffing all you belongings into the smallest bag you have possible. Need to make space, mah!

 

3. Haggling is second nature to you

Because there’s nothing better than getting a good deal that’s value for our money. You know lah, our currency isn’t exaaaactly the best 😡 Plus, we’re Asians! That’s what we do best!

 

4. Half of your purchases don’t actually belong to you

Once your friends or relatives hear you’re going out of town, be prepared for the long list of items they want you to help them buy back from wherever you’re going.

 

5. It’s the perfect opportunity to get presents for everyone

You’ll be able to get fancy stuff for much lower prices. Plus you’ll look a bit ‘atas’ also because you brought it back from overseas 😛

 

6. Your travel itinerary HAS to include time for shopping

Sight-seeing is great and all, but the greatest sight of all is when you see places like these:

I mean, just look at that architecture! If that isn’t considered art, I don’t know what to think anymore!

 

7. You compare the prices of the items you get here with the ones back home

And then silently (or physically) rage at the price difference. Why buy here so cheap, but back home so expensive?!

If you relate to this on a spiritual level, might we suggest getting the UnionPay Debit Card? Because with this card, you instantly get 10 percent off when shopping at over 100 duty free airport shops worldwideDon’t have to compare prices anymore, confirm cheaper!

 

8. When you want to make that really good purchase but don’t have enough local currency on hand

Probably your worst nightmare come true! The pain of having to leave it behind when all you want to do is give it a new forever-home.

Whether you’re an avid shopper or not, I’m sure everyone understands the pain of not being able to make those awesome purchases. Well, that’s why lah you need to be smarter and have a card at hand which you can use to make purchases, especially when you’re abroad.

Such as the UnionPay Debit Card, where Malaysians can now shop, dine and travel with hassle-free payments.
