Today, there is a change in the luxury retail business across the globe, where Shopping is becoming a strong driving force of tourism. If in the past, leisure has always served as the primary motivation for travelling; today, shopping tourism has become a trendy and determining factor in the decision to travel. Tourists are increasingly choosing their destination based on where they can shop and this trend has a huge impact for luxury brands and fashion.

There are many independent stores, malls, shopping districts around the world such as Oxford Street in London and Avenue des Champ Elysees in Paris that have become ’must visit’ attractions for tourists. As shopping and travelling fuses together in an interesting way it gives an opportunity for luxury retail business in Malaysia to position all high-end brands to attract this new market of luxury shopper tourists.
