Other people might bring it to you, too. Though that may also fall under "international travel."
How much can you bring in to Singapore w/o having to pay an import tax? (In the U.S. it's 1 lt., I believe, though I must admit to having brought in a bit more a few times. I suspect customs in the U.S. is less strict.) It's important to recall that buying something in the duty free shop just means the _local_ duty isn't imposed on it, not that there's no potential duty on the place you're taking it to, so if Singapore has an import duty on alcohol over a certain volume you're still required to pay it no matter where you bought the stuff, or so I've understood.
Bombay Sapphire, the gin for vodka drinkers.
I hope so, Robin!Matt, Singapore allows you to bring in 1 liter of spirits, 1 liter of wine, and 3 cans of beer. I didn't see any great beer/wine deals, and I was encumbered anyway by my other stuff, so I didn't get any of those. As it turned out, customs here wasn't quite as strict as one might expect. I'd actually call it the gin for ouzo drinkers, Brock -- the licorice flavor is really what brings me in.
And remember, Neil- alcohol that you're carrying within your person doesn't count against the limits!
