The Best Cities for Luxury Shopping
From New York City’s Fifth Avenue to London’s Dover Street Market.
One of the best parts of taking a vacation is all of the fun souvenirs you get to bring back. And if shopping is the main reason for your trip, there are plenty of cities that will fit the bill. But if luxury fashion, the rarest perfumes, beauty products made of hard-to-find ingredients, or the finest leather goods are on your shopping list, you’re going to need to do a bit of research. (We’re here to help with that.)
You can find respected designers in most big cities around the world, but it’s the character of the buildings and shops that sell them that add so much to a vacation. From the elegant storefronts of Milan to the next-level malls of Dubai, these department stores and boutiques will rival any other building you’ve been in.
When it comes to luxury shopping, there are some destinations that stand out among the rest, whether it’s for their architecture or the experiences that come with your shopping spree. Whether you’re heading to Europe, Asia, or the United States, some cities offer very specific merchandise and others overwhelm with their options. From the leather goods of Rome to the beauty product of Seoul, consider this a shopping list for your next world tour.
