    I normally buy from Paris as it is cheaper. Euro is also much weaker so after converting to Singapore dollars you get better prices. For example if you are buying a Speedy 30, following are the prices before VAT refund.

    Speedy 30 N41364 € 685 equivalent to SGD1040
    Speedy 30 N41364 550 equivalent to SGD1130

    Make sure you bring your passport to the store when you buy so that the boutique can do the tax refund document. You will fill out a refund paper to be stamped at the airport when you leave the country. You have the choice of crediting to your credit card or pay by cash. If you want it by cash you need to wait at the airport, make sure you go early as the queue can be crazy. If you can wait for a few months for the money to be credited to your credit card, you just need to drop it.

    Whether you buy from Paris or London, it does not matter, you can buy from Paris and do your tax refund in London, the amount refund is based on where you bought the bag.

    Thanks for you reply, Paris tax refund is 12% while London is 20%. So does not mean I may be getting more discount overall after tax refund even though LV cost more expensive in London compared to Paris?
