Dubai, United Arab Emirates

Dubai is one of the world’s most exciting destinations if you fancy a shopping spree of epic proportions. There are more than seventy malls dotted through the city and it is home to the Dubai Mall, the largest shopping mall in the world.

Malls in Dubai have a great range of high street stores, upmarket boutiques and high-end designer brands all located within one roof. Many of the malls also offer a range of dining options and other incredible attractions, such as ice rinks, aquariums and even indoor ski slopes!

The United Arab Emirates is also one of the best places in the world to purchase extremely high quality gold and diamond jewellery. Perfect if you’re in the market for a little extra sparkle to add to your collection.


Milan, Italy


The Quadrilatero della Moda and Quadrilatero d’Oro areas of Milan are considered by many fashion industry insiders to be some of the world’s most important fashion districts, so who are we to argue.

Milan is home to some of the most recognised designer brands in the world, making it the ideal city to stock up your wardrobe. Head to via Montenapoleone, via della Spiga, via Borgospesso, via Santa Spirito and via Manzoni to find a dazzling array of boutique stores where you’ll be spoilt for choice with what to buy.


Hong Kong

Visitors from all across the globe travel to Hong Kong for the shopping experiences in the city. The Central area has numerous high-end department stores, designer shops and adorable boutiques nestled among the towering offices of financial powerhouses.

You’ll find amazing stores located within Alexandra House, Prince’s Building, The Landmark and Chater House in the Central area.  The Landmark in particular offers five levels of exclusive designer shopping, with flagship stores by brands such as Dior, Louis Vuitton and Harvey Nichols.


Paris, France

Paris is one of the world’s best-known cities when it comes to fashion and shopping, so where better to head for a shopping spree.
