In Angola, Luanda is the biggest urban centre, however it has limited shopping options on offer. Located on the Atlantic coast is Luanda, the capital of Angola – one of the major Portuguese-speaking capital cities in the world. Luanda, was long held back from decades of conflicts and wars, which only seized in early 2000s. Refusing to be defined by its devastating past, Angola has focused on rebuilding its nation. Thanks to the nation’s reborn wealth, Luanda has seen a massive construction rebirth. The city now boasts a slew of new towering-high-rises and several international companies. With that comes new commercial shopping centres. Not in array of choices, but each shopping centre has enough to carter for the locals, expats and tourists alike. Here are some of the best shopping malls the city of Luanda has to offer.
