Buy Celine bag in Germany or Thailand?

  1. So I've decided to get a Celine mini luggage. I'm not sure about the color, but It's going to be either black, nude or a combo of those two. Can't wait! :biggrin:

    Anyway; I'm going to both Germany (Berlin) and Thailand (Bangkok) within the next months, and I was wondering where I should buy it.

    First of all, are the prices better one of the places due to for example taxes? And does one of the mentioned Celine stores have better stock?

    But most of all I care about the price. I'm not really interested in paying a lot more because of where I got it. :smile:
     
  2. Thailand is not a great place to buy Celine in store. It's very expensive. Germany I guess
     
  3. Unless if you spot it in the airport then the price could be interesting
     
  4. Yea it's very expensive in Thailand! I wouldn't recommend it
     
  5. Thank you for the replies :smile: Thailand supposedly has some kind of really high tax on luxury goods?

    Well, I prefer buying it in Germany anyway since I'm there next month, and I'm going to Thailand for Christmas. And that's a long time without a Celine... So getting my Celine faster is just so much better :biggrin:
     
  6. Yes import fee and tax is truly extreme in Thailand.
