We all like to indulge in a little retail therapy every once in a while, and when we part with our hard-earned cash, it helps to have access to a good shopping centre. However, in some cases, you can actually limit your spending and get more for your money if you are willing to hop on a plane and do your shopping in another part of the world.
To help you do this, The Travel Lane has shortlisted ten shopping destinations that are world-renowned for their shopping districts.
London’s unique amalgamation of cultures and creeds has only improved its reputation as a landmark shopping destination. Ideal for both the thrifty and the indulgent, London’s retail amenities range from famed shopping centres like Harrods and Selfridges to chic clothing stores on Carnaby Street and the Notting Hill area.
There’s also a long line of traditional tailors located on the incredibly affluent Saville Row which is only round the corner from Oxford Street, while the famed Portobello and Camden markets offer a great selection of vintage and handmade items. For bargain-hunting lovers, a number of well-established thrift stores and second-hand shops also operate in the hipster utopia of Brick Lane.
