Shop til you drop in Asia

Shanghai is well known for its fabulous shopping. Known as “the Oriental Paris”, you can find the best bargains Sichuan North Road where the Chinese shop, or fashionable designs from Huaihai Road. And if you need to celebrate a special occasion, or just want to rejoice at the fact that you won?t be working for the next week, there?s certainly something for you. A Celebration Break at Le Meridien She Shan Shanghai will get you a three course dinner with your favourite person and buffet breakfasts daily, as well as the chance to join in the opening of this brand new hotel on November 15th.

Shopping in Mumbai is an experience you’ll never forget. Wander through bazaars like Chor Bazaar, where you’ll find an astounding collection of antiques, jewellery, wooden articles, leatherwear and general bric-a-brac. For beautiful silverwear and belts, go to Zaveri Bazaar and for t-shirts and children’s clothes, head to Mumbai’s, “Fashion Street” situated opposite one of Mumbai’s exclusive clubs, the Bombay Gymkhana. If air conditioned shopping centres are more your thing, stroll through the many shopping arcades connected to the main hotels. If you choose to stay at Le Royal Meridien Mumbai, you’ll be provided with a $60 voucher to go crazy with at Shopper?s Stop, a leading department store with each night of your stay. Buffet breakfast is also included to keep the energy levels up for that long day of market madness.

Join the tourists and the locals in the new shopping centre to hit town.
