Shopping in Dubai

I’ve been wanting to write about my shopping experience in Dubai for a long time now, but I felt that Christmas would be the perfect time to do it. You’ll understand why by the end of this post.

Described as ‘The Centre of Now” and located in the heart of Downtown Dubai, The Dubai Mall, is the world’s largest shopping and entertainment destination and the world’s most-visited shopping.

 

With 1,200 retail stores over 200 food and beverage outlets, it’s the perfect place to run away from the outrageous and unbearable heat in Dubai.

I recommend you to visit The Souk, a designed area of the mall, with jewellery shops, accessory outlets, traditional Arab clothing and handicraft stores, among others.

This mall is also home to the Aquarium & Underwater Zoo, KidZania® and an Olympic-sized Dubai Ice Rink.

Along the mall’s sprawling waterfront promenade, is the world’s most spectacular outdoor musical water fountain – The Dubai Fountain.

The Dubai Mall’s Fashion Avenue has high and mid-fashion retails outlets that pay homage to haute couture.

So, if you are staying in Dubai for a few days or even hours (in case you’re in transit), and you visit the Burj Khalifa, right next to it you’ll find this huge mall. Remember to send me a gift!

Shopping in Italy: Fidenza Village

It’s common knowledge the fact that when you go to Italy, you must shop! I’m glad we just clarified that.

So this Summer I was invited to a Party in the countryside of Italy. You can read the post about the hotel where I stayed here.

That is when I found out about Fidenza Village located just 60 minutes from Milan and Bologna. Where you can discover previous seasons’ collections from the world’s leading Italian and international luxury fashion and lifestyle brands.

With free Wi-Fi (cheers to that), personal shopping, restaurants and cafes, I could spend a week there!

I had lunch at the restaurant Best of Italy (Curated by Chef Massimo Spigaroli), with a very inviting terrace, delicious pasta and parma ham. Perfect for more hours of shopping.

Here is a list of a few shops at Fidenza Village:

Armani Outlet,Blumarine, Calvin Klein Collection, Camper, Class Roberto Cavalli, Coccinelle (Chloè, Marc Jacobs, John Galliano, John Richmond, Alberto Guardiani), Dolce & Gabbana, Desigual, Diesel, Elena Mirò, Ferrari Store, Fossil, Guess, Lacoste, La Perla, Levi’s, Lindt, Marlboro Classics, Merrell, Michael Kors, Paul Smith, Polo Ralph Lauren, Swarovski, Timberland, Tommy Hilfiger, Versace, etc.
