The Best Shopping 'Hoods Around the World

Soho, New York City, USA

Manhattan has more than its fair share of shopping destinations, but SoHo reigns supreme.   If you hit it at the right time (read: a weekday) you'll enjoy an easygoing crowd and can jump from Opening Ceremony if you're feeling Rodarte-ish to Saint Laurent if you're feeling rocker-ish to Stella McCartney if you're feeling vegan. Plus, we've mapped out the best bathrooms.

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.
