When choosing where to study abroad, shopping is not usually the reason for making that choice. This is true until you step into Equatorial Guinea! May students here find the country to be so addictive when it comes to its shopping.

The country has a wide range of shopping alternatives to suit everyone's taste. Eating out is one of the many pleasures of staying in the country. For anyone traveling from Europe,

Malabo will bring you a huge diversity of meal types, but we strongly recommend to get out of the center of it to discover the best places where you can eat the good Equatoguinean food at affordable prices. 

The country may not be among the world’s most renowned shopping destinations, but that doesn't mean it's lacking. There is an exciting marketplace where visitors can find a wide selection of local produce, unique spices, handicrafts, and woodwork.

Local stalls mostly sell vegetables, fruits, coffee, cocoa, and other food staples like rice and beans. You’ll find traditional African clothing, handwoven textiles, and fabric with ethnic prints in shops across the country.

The prices of electronics and other goods are often high because most of them have to be imported from Rio Muni, the mainland. In the capital, specialty produce includes exotic meats from the sea like tortoise and porcupine. Freshly caught fish and seafood are also sold, including shrimps, lobsters, crayfish, large tunas, and cod.

Remember to bring only cash, as credit cards are not accepted. Visitors who are curious about local trade customs will have fun bartering. The markets are usually open from Monday to Saturday, between 8:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m.

The shopping hours resume at 4:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. after the afternoon relax period. The cities are great, with a wide range of things to do at the malls for any visitors from any part of the world. 

A study abroad adventure may turn ugly if one hasn’t prepared so well on what is to be faced and how to face it especially in regards to shopping dynamics related to the country of destination!
