Whether you're shopping for the perfect gift or hunting for bargains, spend a weekend in New York shopping and you'll find everything you could possibly want. Shopping trips to New York begin on 5th Avenue. Opposite the Rockerfeller Center you'll find Saks and if you head in the direction of Central Park you'll find the jewellers Tiffany & Co. And don't forget Bloomingdales and Macy's. If it's fashionable clothing you're after, then head to Soho for a mix of high street stores and niche boutiques selling unique, original clothing.
If it's a mix of sun, sand and high end shopping that you're after, look no further than Dubai. Head to Dubai Mall - home to around 1200 stores, this place feels more like a city. You'll find high end designer brands, high street favourites the first Bloomingdales outside of the US. Away from the mall, a variety of markets await. Head to Karama Souk for unique souvenirs, or if jewellery is more your thing, take a trip to Deira Gold Souk for all that glitters.
Shopping goes hand in hand with sun, sea and a buzzing night life. Plaza Las Americas mall has a great range, from clothes and shoes to furniture and technology. Cancun isn’t just about shopping malls - it has a huge number of craft markets as well to find traditional knick-knacks. If you want the entire shopping experience, visit the shops located in Mayan buildings that sell specialised products. Heading to these boutiques could see you return from your trip with some unique items, while the experience of shopping in these old-fashioned stores will be one you remember forever.
Hong Kong is a city full of energy and a great option for a shopping adventure. Find everything from cooking equipment and vintage cameras to flowers and even goldfish at the bustling markets in Kowloon. There are markets both day and night and plenty of delicious food stalls for when you need to reset and think about what you can wear with those shoes you just had to buy. Over on Hong Kong Island you can find some great luxury boutiques - the IFC mall near the waterfront is a fantastic setting for a spree and when you’re done, head up to the rooftop bar at the top for cocktails whilst watching the day turn to night over the Harbour.
