Milan is obviously known as one of the major fashion capitals in the world where most designers would dream to showcase their collection and build a name. It's so fashionable that even the police officers' uniforms were designed by Armani. No kiddin!
Oh and if you're in Italy, chances are that you'll find a pizza place or a stall that sells crepes, EVERYWHERE. There's even Nutella Pizza for the curious buds. Since it was my second time in Milan, we kinda saved time cause we know where to head to (cue H&M, Gucci and Prada) instead of just wandering around aimlessly like last time.
The last time I went to Milan, it was solely for shopping and as a stop over before heading somewhere else. This time, we had plenty of time to spare thus we visited the Basilica of Sant'Ambrogio, one of the oldest churches in Milan. Winter time is perfect for emotive photos thus we were camwhoring non stop while I was busy getting footage for my video =P
Do note that at tourist places like these, there are foreigners (non-Italians) that would be crrying bangles/strings/goods to be sold on the streets. It is best to ignore them or you'll be duped to pay them a non-sensical amount of money for some nonsense goods.
Trench coat: Herring at Debenhams
Ribbon Clips: Jonker Street, Malacca
Gloves: Marks & Spencer
Shops in Europe are located on the streets and very unlikely to be in a mall like the ones in Malaysia. They would usually have sales at end of every season and there's no harm buying em for future keepsake =P
Yes, it's the statue of Leonardo Da Vinci, again =P
There are plenty of tourist attraction spots to keep you occupied during your stay in Milan. I, just like the last time, would be wandering around Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II to do some shopping and some people watching while having a cuppa. There were tons of people when I was there cause it was the last weekend before Christmas and everyone was doing some last minute shopping. The traffic in shops could've matched up to Federal Highway wei -_-"
The famous Duomo (Cathedral) in the evening
Here is a list of the main attractions you should visit if you're in or visiting Milan, Italy
