If you’re like me, you always need to take a tour of the finer boutiques and check out the prices…Take a stroll down Victoriei to start, near the Hyatt and the new Radisson to spot some trendy boutique shops. There is a new mall over near the Ikea at Baneasa, probably the most American style mall around here, but it seems to be pretty deserted during the weekdays. Unless you have a dire desire to see this complex, or happen to be in the area, I would advise against going, as the traffic returning on the parkway into town is miserable. Expect an hour to go 3 kilometers. They’re in the process now of digging a new tunnel, so it creates some chaos.
Vitan mall is still the best of them all, with a little bit of everything at pretty much every price point. They have a decent food court, a Starbucks with an outdoor terrace, a media galaxy on the top floor for all your electronics needs, a great cinema, and even some after hours billiards halls upstairs. Check it out!
The real gems are the hole in the wall shops and stores… let us know what’s out there to see everyone!
