Asia, a place where fashion sometimes has a whole different meaning to the western world. We have the Harajuku girls from Japan, the designer brand obsessed Chinese, the more relaxed stylings of South East Asia (mostly thanks to the humid weather) and just the sheer availability of everything from high street, local up and coming designers and luxury designer brands.

We’ve spent a lot of time exploring many Asian cities, from the bustling markets and shopping malls of Hong Kong and to the new and old malls of Bangkok and Kula Lumpur. The entire area is a shopping mecca and only a small touch of it is available online.

But never fear, we have a link or two for you to use your Cash Passport Prepaid MasterCard at:

Lane Crawford
This is the Bergdorfs/Saks/Net-A-Porter/Selfridges of Asia. Lane Crawford is known for having an amazing mix of slick designer buys and carefully chosen up and coming brands from Asia and around the world. Their online sales are worth setting several alarms on your phone for, not to mention if you happen to be in Hong Kong, they have an outlet just outside of the city.

Yes Style
Taking a step towards the high street from Lane Crawford is Yes Style, known as the ASOS of Asia, this online store is truly a mecca for any one coveting things that are a little quirky or cute.

Love Asian beauty products and don’t know where to start shopping? Try Luxola. The Singapore based website just recently launched shipping to Australia and stock and array of popular Asian beauty brands like Leaders Insolution, SkinMiso and Dr Wu Clinical Skin care – and they have free shipping for all orders over $40AUD.

Tips for online shopping in Asia:

  • For online fast fashion stores, never trust that you will the same size across different pieces (i.e. dress, tops and coats) because the sizing can be all over the place. Take your personal measurements and double check with each product.
  • Always pay attention to which currency you will be charged in, that way you can make the most of your Cash Passport. Sometimes you could be charged in HKD, USD or maybe even AUD.

    My favorite shopping destination is the internet. Where I can go to any country and shop online right from the comfort of my home (or work while i try to save to actually go travel!)

  • Lucy says:

    Firenze! Holy sh!t balls batman, that place has everything and anything your girly heart desires.

    From outlet shopping, food stalls that tickle every taste-bud, to Harry-Styles-Crotch-Grabbing-Keith-Richards-Channelling-Lotharioesque leather pant stores – you can find it in every colour, flavour, shape, size. Anyone with a cash can do some serious damage there – just don’t tell your husbands!

    New York City, baby! Everything you could possibly need lines the cobblestone streets of Soho. Where high street chains meet high end luxury designer (that you can then get on the cheap at the discount department stores), and you can end the day with a Manhattan in Manhattan <3
