  1. New York and London are the world’s best shopping destinations, but my favorite city for a shopping weekend is definitively Copenhagen, Denmark. I love “Strøget” – Copenhagen’s main shopping street – and Danish Department Stores. Illum and Magasin du Nord are a real paradise for shopping lovers! There, you can find fantastic trendy clothes by young Danish fashion designers and modern Scandinavian design and furnitures. If you’re shopping on a budget, Strøget is filled with shops and boutiques that are really worth a visit too!

  2. I agree with Marion New York and London are probably the world’s best shopping cities, but I also love Paddington in Sydney for some cool & hip labels. Half the fun of travelling for me is shopping in new and different places and hunting out different products and brands.
