Strolling in The Pearl
A swanky Riviera-style man-made island in the shape of a pearl featuring luxury apartment buildings, three marinas, and two million square feet of international retail, restaurants, and entertainment. Although not the place to go shopping on a budget, The Pearl is a great place for window shopping around lavishly decorated boutiques, such as Hermès, Ralph Lauren, Alberta Ferretti, Blumarine, Dados Boutique, Chloé, Galliano, Kenzo, Stella McCartney, Toujouri, or Vera Wang. The Pearl is the place where you can buy (or gawk at) a Ferrari, a Bentley or a Maserati, all of which have showrooms on the island. Whether you are in the mood for a red Ferrari, a designer’s gown, or ice cream on the promenade overlooking the yatch marina, The Pearl is a great, but expensive, shopping destination
