3Singapore, Singapore
Whether you want to sashay through a slew of gargantuan malls or sidle down side streets in the hopes of a bargain, Singapore is sure to satiate the appetites of the most jaded shopper. Choose from local crafts in Chinatown, Little India and Arab Street, or find upscale attire along Orchard Road.

    • History & Culture
      Tourists have shown an increased interest in the past, so Singapore has restored much of its Chinatown district, including the Thian Hock Keng temple, with its impressive warrior door gods and the city's oldest Hindu national monument. The Kranji War Memorial is a tribute to the casualties of the Second World War.

4Beijing, China
An exploding commercial giant, Beijing abounds not just with big street markets (avoid the overpriced and touristy Silk Market and instead check out Panjiayuan, sometimes called Dirt Market), but also higher end areas like downtown's Wangfujing, a pedestrian mall flanked by two Western-style shopping centres.

    • History & Culture
      With a street grid laid out by Kublai Khan in the 13th century, Beijing is filled with history. Tiananmen Square contains a memorial to the Heroes of the People, the Mao Zedong Mausoleum and the spectacular Forbidden City palace. Slightly outside of town, the Ming Tombs are the burial grounds of 13 dynastic emperors.

5Tokyo, Tokyo Prefecture, Kanto, Japan
Shopping amidst Tokyo's infinite options can be dizzying, so knowing the neighbourhoods is crucial: Go to Ginza for upscale boutiques and department stores, Akihabara for electronics, Omotesando and Aoyama for high-end fashion, Harajuku and Shibuya for young trendy clothing, and Kanda for bookstores.

      Tokyo can't be judged from the outside, since those expecting ancient monuments will instead be greeted with modern drabness. The Imperial Palace, still home to the Emperor, shouldn't be missed, and the Edo-Tokyo Museum details the city's history. Sensoji Temple is the city's oldest, and the Tokyo National Museum holds the largest collection of Japanese art in the world.
