    Brazilian Actress and Traveler Patricia Mario discovers why Sawgrass Mills has become an important stop for Brazilians traveling to the US.

    Patricia Mario: Hi! I'm Patricia Mario and I am here at the Sawgrass Mills, the largest outlet mall in the United States. If you've never been here, you have to make it part of your itinerary when visiting Florida. This is by far shopping paradise and I know that because I love to shop.

    It's got the brands that you want at discount prices, you have got Gucci, Tommy Hilfiger, Nike, Guess, Calvin Klein, Columbia Sportswear, Burberry and some other 350 discount and luxury brand stores. You also won't want to miss a visit to the Giant Electronics Superstore BrandsMart, USA. And if you got a family or friends who become grumpy from too much shopping it's the perfect day trip, away from the beach with restaurants, food courts and entertainment. Whether you are in Downtown Miami, South Beach, Fort Lauderdale or directly from the airport, it's an easy place to find, easy place to get to with many transport services available one-way or round-trip. There is also free parking or valet parking.

    Male Speaker: People stands eight hours a day here shopping, a lot of people come here, they stay in the hotels around they are here for two days shopping and they buy luggage and pile up and just --.

    Female Speaker: That's what I was going to ask you I saw tons of people walking around with luggage, what is that?

    Male Speaker: I know it looks like you are in the airport, right.

    Female Speaker: I know. Male Speaker: But people here -- luggage is a great selling item here in the mall, people buy the luggage so they can fill it with other merchandise so they don't have to carry all kind of bags. And we have these luggage racks that similar to the ones in the airport and if you come in three hours after the shopping mall opens, we run out of them. Patricia Mario: And before you begin shopping make sure you get your coupon book as well as the free shopping app. You won't want to miss out some of the great savings coupons. Truth is this is a shopping opportunity you don't want to miss. I am Patricia Mario trying to figure out the next store I am about to attack.
