Some people like to relax on a white sandy beach with the waves lapping at their feet, while others prefer to trek mountains and explore the wilderness, but sometimes our idea of the perfect vacation is somewhere we can shop. The world’s most beautiful stores are home to more than just fashion: Many of the world’s top retailers are just as famous for their architecture and interior design elements. And the best part about shopping overseas is finding those unique and one-off pieces no one else will own back home—even better when the dollar is strong. From Paris to Singapore, scroll down to discover some of the cities we love, including must-visit malls and our favorite fashion strips.
