Buenos Aires - Shopping (Chapter)
This is the Shopping chapter from Lonely Planet's Buenos Aires guidebook.
Despite a global recession and a major drop in the purchasing power of the Argentine peso in the last few years, Buenos Aires’ citizens continue to shop as if there’s no tomorrow. And it’s not just an act of hedonistic consumerism; it’s seen as a social pursuit that allows you to look good while you’re doing it.
- check out one of Buenos Aires’ many malls; Mercado de Abasto in Once sports a children’s museum and small amusement park complete with rides
- stuff your pockets with pesos and wander over to one of the city’s wonderful outdoor street markets
- make a beeline for Palermo Soho, where avant-garde fashion designers’ boutiques line the pretty tree-shaded streets
Coverage includes: Opening Hours, Taxes & Refunds, Bargaining, Shopping Strips, Street Markets, The Center, Congreso & Tribunales, San Telmo, Retiro, Recoleta & Barrio Norte and Palermo.
