Looking to get your shop on? Conde Nast Traveler readers have spoken and these are the best places to shop till you drop right now.
Of course, New York City is number one on the list.
“New York sets the standard for a destination shopping city—so dense with options, all budgets will find a way to spend a little too much money,” says Conde Nast.
Dubai is the number-two spot for shopping, according to readers.
“No surprise here: The UAE city has redefined the mall experience with the Mall of the Emirates, the "world's first shopping resort", complete with an indoor ski slope,” Conde Nast notes.
Chicago comes in at number three on the list for it’s Magnificent Mile.
“Most people think of the Magnificent Mile when they think of Chicago, but the city’s shopping scene extends far beyond one thoroughfare,” says Conde Nast.
Hong Kong is also one of the world’s best places to shop.
“The city’s main claim-to-retail-fame is Lane Crawford, a high-end department store where you can finally check all those $5,000 handbags off your shopping list. Much less massive but just as chic is EDIT, a colorful womenswear store and personal favorite of Hong Kong-based stylist Tina Leung,” Conde Nast says.
Conde Nast Traveler readers also named Santa Fe, N.M., number five on the list.

“Voted one of the best small cities in America by our readers, Santa Fe also earned its spot on our shopping list for two years running. The New Mexico city is a melting pot of Hispanic and Native American culture, as reflected in its wide array of museums, galleries, and shops,” writes Conde Nast.
