Here we take you on a shopping trip around some of the greatest and most famous shopping streets in the world. We live out the dream of any fashionista by admiring the designer labels found on the streets of Milan, But who could resist following in the footsteps of the 'Sex and the City' girls by taking in a visit to the Big Apple on a shopping trip to some of the best department stores the US has to offer. If you see yourself at home on 5th Avenue, compare prices on your city break with TravelSupermarket.

Lighting up the world at Christmas

Posted: 23 Dec 2012 04:03 AM PST

As Christmas approaches, we take the time to celebrate some incredible light displays from around the world. We look back to 1540, when Martin Luther first had the idea of decorating his Christmas tree with candles, supposedly unaware of the festive craze he was setting in motion. We document how candles gave way to electric bulbs, and how this previously expensive tech became more widely affordable, we then trace the rise in popularity of these newly dubbed "fairy lights" up until present day.

We tally up who has the greatest number of lights, followed by a few honourable mentions from across the globe. We land in the UK for an overview of festive activity across the country. If you happen to be booking a hotel in London over the Christmas period, learn who turned on the lights illuminating the Olympic park, as well some other familiar faces spotted lighting up displays across the UK.
