Negotiating prices

If you are a foreigner, be prepared for vendors at the city’s street side stalls and bazaars to throw exorbitant prices at you – sometimes even for the fun of a good bargain. You are encouraged to negotiate the best you can without insulting vendors. You can always check with a fellow local customer to see if you’re being unreasonably charged.
