The Los Angeles Fashion District is great for business travelers (buyers, designers, wholesalers), as well as leisure shoppers. Most transactions are wholesale but there are plenty of retail opportunities for every shopper.
Getting a US SIM card for your smartphone while in the US will make your travels much easier by accessing the internet on the go and using Google Maps. Car rental companies offer navigation systems, but they can get costly - especially for longer trips since they charge you per day. A better option is to purchase a SIM card for your unlocked GSM smartphone. Be sure to check if your phone is unlocked with your provider back home first. If you do not own a GSM phone, you can always purchase an inexpensive phone here along with your SIM card.
Shopping in Los Angeles is great. Best of all, there is a place to shop for any budget. So whether you are looking for high-end or bargain shopping, there is a place for everyone.
