當我們出國旅遊的時候,除了遊覽景點之外,shopping當然是不可缺少的一環啦!在旅遊購物的時候,你會發現有些地方買起東西非常的方便,主要的原因有以下四項:

 

1. Getting around: Quality of public transportation, affordability and availability of cabs, transport time

交通便利、計程車便宜又隨處可得、來回的交通時間距離都在可接受範圍

 

2. Value: Bargain opportunities, such as sale seasons and average prices.

購物的重點當然就是折扣的幅度囉~另外還有商家的議價空間也很重要

 

3. Variety: Number of available brands,range of shopping categories, quantity of upscale 

shops, department stores,boutique and vintage retailers and market stalls.

商店和品牌的多樣性,從高級到中價位的商品都買得到

 

4. Experience: City beauty, quality of window displays and shop décor, friendliness and competence of clerks and service staff, dining and accommodation options.

城市本身是否有裝飾、服務人員的服務品質和態度、周邊的住宿和餐飲是否方便等等,都是shoppers在意的要點之一

 

現在,我們來看一下,到底哪些城市位居購物天堂的前12大呢?

 

12. Seoul

Getting around: 4 Value: 7 Variety: 4 Experience: 6 Total: 21

South Korea recorded more credit card transactions per person than any other country in 2011, and all merchants are required by law to accept credit cards no matter how low the price. Yes, that means the phrase "cash only,please" is technically illegal.

在首爾,政府規定不管金額多小,信用卡必須隨處可用,所以 “只收現金” 基本上是違法的喔~

 

11. Milan

Getting around: 5 Value: 5 Variety: 4 Experience: 8 Total: 22

Home to many of fashion's biggest names such as Prada, Dolce &Gabbana and Versace, it's little wonder this beautiful city is full of glamorous locals and shops that cater to them.

身為許多大品牌的出生地,米蘭理所當然是走在時尚最前端的購物城市之一

 

10. Madrid

Getting around: 6 Value: 6 Variety: 4 Experience: 7 Total: 23

Madrid mostly gets our credit cards warm simply for being Madrid,though it's worth noting that the city ranks third for best prices on general luxury items in the Globe Shopper Index.

馬德里的名牌價格是全世界第三便宜的地方喔~

 

9. Dubai, United Arab Emirates

Getting around: 6 Value: 6 Variety: 8 Experience: 4 Total: 24

A miniature kingdom unto itself, the Dubai Mall is the world's largest mall in total area,with theme parks, a waterfall, "dancing" fountains, Olympic-sized ice rink, aquarium, indoor souk and malls within the mall, such as the Galeries Lafayette from France and the

 

first Bloomingdale'soutside the United States .

 

在杜拜有一個超大的購物中心,裡頭有主題樂園、水舞池、奧林匹克標準大小的溜冰場、水族館等。

 

8. Vienna

Getting around: 6 Value: 8 Variety: 3 Experience: 8 Total: 25

At the centuries-old Naschmarkt, shoppers can eat their way along 1.5 kilometers of 120 food vendors flogging local eats from kaiserschmarrn (dessert pancakes) and crepe-like palatschinke to exotic cheeses and seafood.

在維也納購物,可以享受到長達1.5公里、包含120家道地餐館的美食饗宴~

 

7. Buenos Aires

Getting around: 6 Value: 8 Variety: 6 Experience: 7 Total: 27

Calle Murillo is a street with leather shops that also offer tailoring services. Murillo 666 is perhaps the best known, but about 50 more surround it,a handy surfeit of shops come haggle time.

在布宜諾斯艾利斯,你可以買到專屬訂做的皮件喔。

 

6. Hong Kong

Getting around: 10 Value: 5 Variety: 6 Experience: 7 Total: 28

According to Global Shopper City Index research, 87 percent of Hong Kong tourists shop, and "76 percent of shopping tourists expressed above-average satisfaction on value for money in 2011."Small wonder that Hong Kong also claims the title of best Asian shopping city in the Index

香港相信大家都不陌生吧,在亞洲來說,這裡算是品牌最齊全、購物最便利的城市了

 

5. Paris

Getting around: 6 Value: 6 Variety: 8 Experience: 9 Total: 29

The best shops in Paris don't sell clothes. They sell lifestyles.

講到購物,當然不能少了時尚之都,巴黎~在這裡,很多店家甚至是在販售一種lifestyle

 

4. Kuala Lumpur

Getting around: 6 Value: 10 Variety: 8 Experience: 6 Total: 30

KL's impressive score comes from its winning combination of high quality shopping, affordable prices and reliable sales, which can stretch for several months. This year's Year-End-Sale, from November 10 to January 1, is just one doozy of an example.

在吉隆坡,每年都有一個年度大清倉,從十一月到隔年的一月,讓你可以在世界第四大的購物中心裡面盡情的享受

 

3. London

Getting around: 6 Value: 6 Variety: 10 Experience: 9 Total: 31
