Now THIS is news!
If your heart starts palpitating at the mere sight of “sale” sign, or if you’ve been known to elbow another shopper out of the way — if she’s getting between you and the boots you covet — or if you plan all of your vacations with retail therapy built in, this list is for you. We’ve rounded up the ten best cities in the world for your next shopping excursion — and whether you’re in the market for high fashion, fancy baubles, or even an unusual pet, we’ve got a destination for you. So pay off some credit card debt and hit the road — but don’t blame us when the bills come in.
Among the cities in the list are Bangkok and Hong Kong in Asia, London and Paris in Europe, New York and Los Angeles in North America.
I wholeheartedly agree with Bangkok. There are a lot of great locally made stuff from art and home decors to clothes and bags, and there are also brands from overseas that are priced even lower than in Manila.
Though I haven’t been to Hong Kong yet (preposterous, isn’t it?), a lot of shopaholics in the Philippines make annual (or more) pilgrimage to this vibrant city to indulge in their favorite pastime.
While Manila has awesome prices, most of the stuff here are from Bangkok, Hong Kong and China. Even though the goods we will see in these cities will pretty much be the same with what’s available in Greenhills or Divisoria and the additional cost of transportation and accomodation, nothing beats shopping overseas.
What do you think? Do you agree with their list or do you know of a city they missed?
