Planning to go shopping in Asia? Global Blue Holdings AB released this year’s Globe Shopper Index which ranked the Top 25 Shopping Cities in Asia.
The Globe Shopper Index ranking rated cities on five categories which they think travelers give more importance when traveling: Affordability, Convenience, Culture & Climate, Hotels and Transport, and Shops. These categories are, in turn, broken down into key indicators—the shopping priorities.
Manila ranked 11th in the Asia Pacific region with the overall score of 51.5 and was rated best in Affordability (shoppers get the most for one’s budget) and Explorer (Explorer shopper-types enjoy discovery, they seek to bring home with them a sense of the city and the culture).
The Globe Shopper Index compared 33 European and 25 Asia Pacific cities.
