    Question go shopping or for shopping?

    What's wrong with the answer? Any grammatical mistake? Please help. In question go shopping but in answer go for shopping. Why?

    Q. Where do villagers go shopping?
    Ans. Villagers go to the city for shopping?

    Why? Because without it, the answer isn't grammatical. It has nothing to do with shopping.

    Q: Where do the villagers go swimming?
    A: They go to the river for swimming.

    The answers could have been.
    A: They go shopping in the city.
    A: They go swimming in the river.

    You can't answer, "They go to the city shopping" or "They go to the river swimming."
