Fly for less, buymore at Asia’s shopping hubs via Cebu Pacific

From the most luxurious brands in Dubai to the exhilarating markets of Bangkok, Filipinos will surely enjoy spending less on their airfare and splurging more on great deals as Cebu Pacific continues to offer its trademark lowest fares to some of the world’s best shopping hubs.

From designer brands to unique finds. Hong Kong, Asia’s cultural melting pot, scores perfectly in every tourist’s checklist with its world-famous cuisine, wide array of sightseeing spots, and most of all, a wide selection of shopping options. From designer brands in The Landmark, Harbour City and Time Square to quirky finds in the night markets of Mongkok, Hong Kong is the mecca for all kinds of shoppers. Those who want to do good, supporting local art while buying unique, quality pieces, should make a beeline to Artisans d’Angkor in Siem Reap, Cambodia. This social enterprise is dedicated to preserving and advancing traditional Khmer skills in silk-making, stone and wood carving, lacquering and painting, while providing job and educational opportunities to young people living in the rural areas. From exquisite silk scarves and bags, lacquer and wooden decoration, silk and pearl jewelry pieces, the shop has a lot of intricate items that will leave any guest spoiled for choice.

Shopping Oriental-style in Bangkok’s street markets. For many travelers, Bangkok is a smorgasbord of offerings, from century-old temples, exotic food, a pulsating nightlife, and most of all, countless shopping options. Bargain shopping is at its best in the city’s bustling street markets—from the massive Chatuchak Weekend Market, where virtually everything can be found, to the wholesalers’ paradise Pratunam Market. Options also abound in malls like MBK, Siam Paragon and Platinum, the open air Asiatique, The Riverfront mall and the quirky Terminal 21.

Fashion-forward travelers can also score great bargains on a range of quality fabric in an assortment of colors, designs and textures at the Ninh Hiep Fabric Market in Hanoi, Vietnam. Dong Xuan Market, a large covered market in the center of Hanoi, also sells everything from bags, clothes to Vietnamese souvenirs.

Best buys in Asia’s world-class cities. With all its superlative attractions, Dubai definitelysets the bar high, especially when it comes to the shopping experience. The Dubai Mall is one of the world’s largest malls and the most-visited shopping and leisure destination, with over 600 brands and the Dubai Aquarium and Discovery Centre. It is also near the breathtaking Dubai Fountain show, fronting the Burj Al Arab. Meanwhile, the world’s first shopping resort, the Mall of the Emirates, features 520 international brands as well as the Ski Dubai, 22,500 square meters of indoor ski area covered with real snow all year round.  For those looking for bargains and authentic finds, Dubai’s bustling and atmospheric souks in Deira and Bur Dubai are reminiscent of the street markets of Marrakesh and Istanbul, and are some of the most colorfulbazaars in the Middle East. These souks offer a wide array of spices, textiles, jewelry and perfume, perfect for any occasion or self-indulgent shopping spree.

In another part of the world, no trip to Japan is complete without a stopover at Akihabara in Tokyo, which is also known as a gamer’s paradise. The Yodabashi Akiba alone has nine floors housing an incredible collection of cameras, computers, gaming consoles and home electronics, as well as specialty hobbyist stores that sell toys, figures and model kits.
