Duty Free shopping is fun in Port Vila. The options run the whole range of luxury items, fine wines and spirits down to inexpensive souvenirs. Locally produced arts include some very primitive and authentic carvings in wood and stone, pottery, paintings, and the South Pacific foremost living artists A, Pilioko and N. Michoutouchkine Creations and Sun Wear.
The currency used is the Vatu. Although Australian dollars are accepted by many shops, restaurants and hotels in Vila, and a few in Luganville (Santo), they are NOT readily accepted outside of town or throughout the islands.
