Shopping is a language that’s internationally recognised and loved no matter where you live – usually for fashion items but also homewares, antiques, food and plenty more! There are many cities that are celebrated for their fabulous shopping possibilities, so this is a (by no means exhaustive) shortlist of some of the best shopping destinations from different parts of the world:
New York – USA
No matter what part of New York you’re in, you’re not likely to be more than a few blocks away from a shopping opportunity, whether it’s big-name brands, unique independent stores or huge malls you’re looking for.
Situated right at the centre of the action, Fifth Avenue caters for every pocket as well as being conveniently placed for many of New York’s sightseeing landmarks. Here you’ll find heavyweights such as Louis Vuitton and Tiffany’s just a short walk from high-street names like H&M and Forever 21, as well as the cavernous Abercrombie & Fitch flagship store!
New York is also home to some of the world’s most famed department stores including Saks, Macy’s and Bloomingdale’s. Bargain-hunters can also revel in cut-rate designer fashions at Century 21 – conveniently placed for sightseers visiting Ground Zero.
If outlet shopping is your thing and you have a day to spare, you can take a one-hour bus journey out to Woodbury Common, which has over 220 stores including sportswear, designer shops, home furnishings, jewellery and loads more at knock-down prices.
