Do you like to do shopping when you travel to a different countries and if yes than what is the perfect country for shopping to your mind? I really love to do my shopping abroad and I love to do that in London or in Milan. I also think that the best shopping is in USA.

I haven't been to many different countries, but I do love to go shopping when I do go. When I was in Marguerita Island and in the Bahamas, I didn't even leave the resorts that I was staying at. The vendor people came right up to us on the beach and we could shop from them. It was great because we could wheel and deal with them in the comfort of our beach chairs! I was just in the Bahamas again and went into town to do some shopping. It wasn't as fun becauses the stores were just like the shops you find along the beaches in Florida. I would love to go to London just for a shopping trip!

I do love to shop whenever I visit another country. I feel as if that there are a lot more things to buy and look at, and a lot more variety of stuff in other countries compared to where I live. Sometimes the price can be cheaper, but it depends.

yes, the same here. I also think that abroad, no matter where I go, it is much more good and interesting stuff.

I like to shop when I travel to find good quality, local items that I can't get at home. it's a nice way to remember the trip - like getting a real wool sweater in Ireland, or nice leather goods in italy. usually, though, I prefer to spend my money on local cuisine!! I'm not much of a shopper, but if I find something practical and unique when abroad, I like to pick it up.

I love shopping when I'm traveling abroad. I also love shopping in different destinations in the USA. Some of my favorite shopping cities include: Glasgow, Chicago, NYC, and Amsterdam. However, shopping abroad in Europe is really expensive for Americans just now because of the weak dollar.

yes, I agree with you, dollar became so weak lately and it makes shopping in Europe really expansive. I love to shop in NYC as well.

I'm not a person who like to do shopping when I go abroad. If I will do shopping probably because I really need those things and I couldn't find those things in my country. That's when I will decide to do shopping when I go abroad.

I can understand you. When you visit another country you just don't want to waste your time shopping, it is better to use it for sightseeing, right?

Yes, the USA is fantastic for shopping. I have bought some lovely clothes there. I collect costume dolls from around the world. I got some gorgeous hand made ones in Kenya. I got many wooden animals in the market place there. Hong Kong and Singapore are wonderful places to get a bargain. I bet there are so lovely clothes shops in Milan, just as there are in Paris.

I love shopping when I travel to different countries. It's nice to see what kind of clothing and decorating stuff is available outside of my country. There are a couple of places that I really enjoyed shopping in: I loved Paris - the clothes, shoes, and purses were absolutely amazing! And they had such beautiful and unique jewellery. I remember ohhing and ahhing as I walked past each jeweller counter in the department stores. Although with the exchange rate, shopping in Paris was a little pricey for me. If I won the lottery, I would definitely head over there for an immediate shopping spree! The other place that I enjoyed shopping in was Thailand. I found a lot of decorative house stuff that is sold in my country - but it was a tenth of the price in Thailand. I got a lot of good deals, and was able to pick up a lot of stuff for very little money.
