Articles about Buenos Aires Argentina
Por Alejandro Coudannes

Buenos Aires offers many options for those of you interested in taking your own shopping tour, and visiting local galleries, businesses, commercial centers, and outlets (for those looking to find a good bargain).

+ Shopping or Commercial Centers in Buenos Aires
Shopping centers are varied, abundant, and very good. Buenos Aires has many shops and businesses where you will find the best brands, food courts and sometimes cinemas. The centers let you compare prices and buy everything you are looking for in the same place, from clothes for the whole family, books, perfume, CDs, DVDs. Argentina is zone 5 so be careful that the DVDs you buy will play in zone 1 (US) or zone 2 (EU). You will find the latest technology (cameras, notebooks, etc.). Shopping centers offer the best option for a total excursion: shopping, a movie, a place to have a cup of coffee or a complete meal. You can often find special offers or exclusive discounts.
