5 Unique Shopping Spots Around the World

Something every stylish tourist looks forward to on their travels is shopping. Today we are featuring 5 shopping spots around the world which make great shopping destinations.


Paris is not just home to expensive fashion brands, but a treasure hunt for the vintage bargain seeker. From chic independent boutiques to Grand Department stores, there’s something for everyone in the city of lights, love and fashion. The outfit above was bought in various Parisian stores. Shoes are from  BHV (situated in le Marais district of Paris, and is one of the city’s oldest department stores). My top is from one of the many stores in the newly renovated les Halles (Paris’ newly renovated underground shopping malls).

The best place to go shopping in Munich is the Maximilianstrasse. The beautiful royal avenue from the 19th century will impress you with its stately buildings and the many, many designer shops. Chanel, Gucci, Dior – there is virtually no international luxury brand you won’t find. But there are also a couple of excellent jewelry stores, the original Four Seasons luxury hotel (“Hotel Vier Jahreszeiten”), Munich’s famous opera house and the state parliament. 

If you're heading to South Florida take a stroll down Miami's Design District filled with luxury retail and stunning modern architecture. Here you will find your favorite high-end designers, frequent events and activities, and convenient parking. It truly is Miami's version of 5th Avenue. Visit this Black Friday for amazing sales and checkout their site to see upcoming events.

Indonesia is a land of art and culture. After my recent visit to Yogyakarta,a province in Indonesia I would say , Mailboro Street shopping is my favorite city in the world. They have amazing artifacts, batik clothing, souvenirs, spices and jewelry which can suit anyone's style'. Since it is a street market, you can bargain with the price. Yogyakarta generally has mid segment brands which are very affordable. 


Milan is known as a fashion capital and glamorous shopping destination. Not everything there is outrageously expensive. Here are some tips on shopping in the alternative and bohemian areas. Along the Navigli Canal you can get an aperitivo (pre-dinner drink) at night or find a nice blend of vintage shops and handmade jewelry. Every last Sunday of the month an antique flee market is held there. Picturesque Brera gives a bohemian atmosphere for artists and thus you can get acquainted with local designers and small independent shops. Porta Ticinese is the area for young people with cool trends and alternative shopping spots. Corso Como is on the expensive side but is an amazing art and culture complex with cafe, gallery and a store.
