Stop ‘n’ shop in Asia
Stopovers can be a handy way to squeeze in a little extra shopping before heading back to reality. Wendy Wu Tours recommends spending a few days in the shopping hotspots of Hong Kong, Macao or Singapore. Head to Hong Kong’s Stanley Markets for an interesting array of little shops selling silk garments, sportswear, art, Chinese costume jewellery and souvenirs. A short ferry ride away lies Macao, the “Las Vegas of Asia”, sporting a mix of extravagant shopping centres and a number of shop-houses typical of southern China. The hub of Singapore is also home to an array of shopping experiences ranging from the designer stores of Orchard Road through to the buzzing ethnic “Little India” district.
