The Best Shopping 'Hoods Around the World

Aoyama, Tokyo, Japan

Gwen Stefani's "Love.Angel.Music.Baby" album popularized Harajuku for the pop music kids of the West, and while Harajuku may still be one of Tokyo's most fashionable neighborhoods, it has nothing on Aoyama. The region saw a boom in designer retail over the past few years and boasts some of the world's most innovative retail experiences. If you go, do not miss the Prada store.

In my experience, those who like to shop are also those who like to travel. My spidey-senses tell me it has something to do with spending money and experiencing new highs. I haven't been all over the world, but when I have traveled, my tripmates and I make a point of shopping around. And what's a vacation without a souvenir? It's just a really long commute, that's all.

The next time you find yourself wanting to get away while also wanting to blow some cash, try visiting one of these places. They are, undoubtedly, the best shopping neighborhoods in the world.
