Barely a year old, Asunción’s brand new mall is a haven for shopaholics. The 220 million US dollar investment made in this shopping mecca was among the first deals of its kind sealed in the Paraguayan capital and it’s got the goods to prove it was money well spent. Paseo la Galería is dotted with fountains and miniature gardens and is home to the likes of Calvin Klein and Lacoste, as well as international high street favorites Zara and Pandora. Head to the open-air food court (where you’ll find the Paraguayan Pizza Hut outpost) for one of the best views in the city.
