World's best cities for people who love to shop


Lola Mendez, CNN • Published 27th September 2019罗拉·门德斯,CNN·2019年9月27日报道

(CNN) — Some travel the globe in search of historic locales, to eat and drink the local cuisine, or to kick back on a beautiful beach. Others are motivated by shopping for stylish goods.


Whether you're looking for the most exclusive designer duds, bargain opportunities, vintage retailers or market stalls, these are some of the best cities in the world to visit for a shopping spree.



Milan's shopping is world-class and famous; shopping fiends will delight in the designer options.

Many of fashion's most famous design houses are Italian: Gucci, Prada and Versace. These luxury brands all have flagship stores in Milan, the legendary fashion capital of Italy. As the Italian hub for the fashion industry, the street style in Milan is forever glamorous.

许多时尚界最著名的设计公司都是意大利的:古驰 (Gucci)、普拉达(Prada)和范思哲(Versace)。这些奢侈品牌都在意大利传奇时尚之都米兰拥有旗舰店。作为意大利时尚产业的中心,米兰的街头风格永远魅力四射。

One of the most expensive shopping experiences is the world-renowned Quadrilatero d'Oro, meaning golden neighborhood. The area is full of jewelers and fashion boutiques and is considered one of the most important fashion districts on Earth. Swipe your black card and take home the latest and greatest it-bag. Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II is Italy's oldest active mall and another great place for cool fashion finds.

最昂贵的购物体验之一是世界著名的Quadrilatero d’oro,即黄金社区。这里到处是珠宝店和时尚精品店,被认为是地球上最重要的时尚区之一。刷你的黑卡,刷黑卡(黑卡 花旗银行名为“ultima”的黑色信用卡以及美国运通公司在1999年推出了名为“centurion”的黑色信用卡,被业内人士称为“卡中之王”。)把最新最好的必不可少的包包带回家。维托里奥·埃马努埃莱二世拱廊(Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II)是意大利最古老活跃的购物中心,也是寻找时尚潮流的好地方。

Italy is also known for high-quality leather goods and cashmere. Purchase directly from local purveyors in Milan to get the best price on luxury items that would cost a small fortune at home. Zani Del Fra' makes personalized fine leather bags in an array of lush colors.

意大利还以高质量的皮革制品和羊绒制品而闻名。直接从米兰当地的经销商那里购买奢侈品,以获得比国内花费很少的价格。扎尼·德尔弗拉省(Zani Del Fra)’生产个性化的精美皮包,颜色丰富多彩。

But it's not all high-end, break-the-bank shopping; bargain hunters love Milan for its array of second-hand shops that sell the elites' outcasts at a fraction of the original ticket price. The sale racks at Il Salvagente, which means the lifesaver, always have treasures waiting to be found. Milan's longest-established outlet has three floors of discounted goods conveniently organized by size and color.

但也不全是高端的倾家荡产式购物;喜欢买便宜货的人喜欢米兰,因为那里有许多二手商店,以原价的零头出售那些被精英阶层们的“弃儿”。在Il Salvagente折扣店的货架上,总是有很多宝贝等着被发现。米兰历史最悠久的商店有三层楼的打折商品,按大小和颜色分类很方便。

Dubai 迪拜

Keep an eye out for the dinosaur, waterfall, dancing fountains, Olympic-sized ice rink, aquarium, indoor souk and numerous malls within the mall, such as the French Galeries Lafayette and the first Bloomingdale's outside the United States.
