Shopping is a hobby that a lot of women take seriously. They want to shop during their vacation no matter what. And if you have the time to do so, why not spend some free time browsing through shops and seeing what the locals buy and maybe even picking up some tourist items as well? This is a very common activity for people who vacation. Some vacation destinations are known for having some great places to shop at and that is what people go there for. One place that is off the beaten path but perhaps can offer a nice shopping experience is Cape Town, South Africa. They have many shops, besides the malls, that people can go to kill time and shop for themselves or all their loved ones back home.
Cape Town is home to four different shopping malls that locals and tourists alike can shop at. If you would prefer to shop at stores that you can find at home, or perhaps brand names for a better price, then these malls would be the place to go. You will find all the essential mall type stores and food courts.
If you are not in the mood to go to a mall, or perhaps you really want to expand your horizons and see what else Cape Town has to offer, then never fear. Cape Town is home to plenty of other shopping areas. There are a number of markets in the town that sell everything from antiques to handmade collectables. Perhaps the largest Cape Town market is Green Market Square. This is one of the oldest and it is home to a variety of antiques, such as; clothes, jewelry, and housewares. This market is open daily for you to shop to your heart’s content.
Are you looking at what kind of local jewelry you can find? Then do not worry because Cape Town has a wonderful store named Dolce & Banana. This uniquely named store houses a great collection of handmade jewelry all made from local materials and made in true African style. If you want a great souvenir to take home to someone, this would be the best place to go to get a great piece that people will talk about for years to come.
Shopping is often known as “retail therapy” and sometimes, even on a relaxing vacation, you just want to go shopping and not think about anything else. If you find the urge while you are in Cape Town, be ready for what you would like to shop for, but do not worry that there is nowhere to shop. So start your vacation off right by booking a cheap flight to Cape Town, saving money there, so you can shop your heart out when you land.
