I like shopping but not a shopaholic. The video was great and I came to know that there are so many good shops there. I really want to visit London in future not for shopping only but to roam around the city.

Hi. I love shopping. Shopping makes me happy and feel good. London is one of the most beautiful city and shopping capital of the world. The difference between shopping in My country and London is that in my country there are not many shopping malls and its not possible for me to get the required things easily from one place. I would love to visit London and will do shopping from there.London is a great place for shopping where I could easily find affordable and kuxurious things. As Hamleys is the biggest toys shop so I will feel great if I can buy toys from there someday. Thanks for the video. It was nice and an informative one.

Shopping in London is a lot more fancy than our country....but i guess it would be much expensive for me...only if i could become as a rich person i could bear the expenses...but i will try my best to go in London & visit these markets even if it is to buy a toothpaste....but i must say they have a great collection of good stuffs which we lack in having in our marketing places

I don't like shopping everyday because I think it is a time wasting work. I love study and I love reading books. Generally I do shopping on various occasion.

I like shoppinng and I would like to go to London to go shopping. where I live, there aren't many shops so I can not buy lots of clothes and things. I have to take a bus to reach the nearest shopping centre, and it's very boring because it takes about an hour, so, I don't go shopping a lot.

I love shopping a lot in my country because finding the clothes you want from your favourite brands is easy cause there's a different shop for each brand in the same mall.I would LOVE to shop in London because it seems so much fun because i think the brands are original and more than in my country.

I like shopping. The difference between shopping in London and shopping in the place I live is that there are much more shops in London. There are not much shops here and there are no big department stores. I like clothing shops, because I like buying clothes.

Wesse & Igor

We don't like shopping in the shopping mall.
We only buy clothes online, just for shoes we
go to the shopping mall. But, we like shopping
with our girlfriends.

I enjoy shopping, but I'm not a shopaholic. London is the most popular city in the world famous for fashion. There are much more shops than in the capital city of Poland, Warsaw. In my town we don't have any big shopping malls, so I must go to a bigger city, if a want to buy something.

In my city their is a lot of shopping places put the problem is that there isn't many different stores as UK and the shopping here is quite expensive. I love to buy new clothes and wear the newly style, my mother always says to me that I should not buy anymore clothes because wardrobe is full and you have everything.

I adore shopping. London is really shopping capital of the world. There are so many shops and it is a pleasure to shop there. However in my town there are a lot of shops but substantially less than in London. The most famous shopping center in my town and the biggest one is Delta City.
