Save Big to Shop More with Cheap Flights to Tenerifeby Daisy Wilkinson Travel Guides
If you've got plenty of time during your layover at the Tenerife South Airport, you'll have many things to do at the airport before catching your next flight. However, if you've got a lot of time before you can board your connecting flight, you can get outside the airport and go shopping in the attractive markets of the island. The largest among the seven Canary Islands, Tenerife is visited by millions of tourists from different parts of the world every year. It also hosts the Carnival of Santa Cruz de Tenerife, which is among the largest carnivals in the world.
You can book any of the cheap flights to Tenerife in order to save big for your journey ahead. The savings made can also be utilised to go shopping outside the airport before you get into your connecting flight. In recent times, many stylish shopping complexes have come up in certain areas, such as Playa de las Americas and Costa Adeje. At these places, you can shop for your favourite items from world-famous fashion brands like Zara and Stradivarius. You can also shop for apparels at the stylish designer outlets in these areas. Also worth considering is the old quarter of La Laguna, which has been listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
After you arrive at the airport in any of the flights to Tenerife, you can go shopping for some electronic items in the major tourist centres of the island. Some of the tourists find these markets useful, while others don't find the prices that attractive. Trust and confidence also remain a big issue with such places. In the past few years, many of the travellers have complained about the electronic shops on the island in the travel forums. It is, therefore, advisable that you visit the hypermarkets if you wish to shop for electronic gadgets.
The savings made while booking the flights to Tenerife would also give you enough savings to buy some souvenirs at the best outlets on the island. Most of the tourists consider the Pinolere craft fair an ideal place for buying impressive handicrafts, but this fair is held only in the month of September. A smaller version of this fair is held at Plaza Europa in Puerto de la Cruz each Sunday. If you're at the airport on any other day, you can choose to visit the art stores located in Calle Mequinez. Alternatively, you can also explore the workshops that are held regularly in the fishing district.
Supermarkets do not generally stock the local wines. Those who do stock them have only a limited selection, which usually comprises brands that are well-known among the people. You can visit a winery located in the El Sauzal town to sample the finest selection of local wines before buying the desired one. You can also find a shop selling other local products, such as cheese and honey, at this place. While on your visit to any of the bigger traditional cities or towns of the island, you can also explore the specialist wine shops.
Upon booking any of the Tenerife holidays, you can explore the most popular attractions on the island.
