South-east Asia is a fantastic shopping destination, with many markets and shopping strips offering great bargains. Do your homework before you go and know the value of the items you want if you are planning to haggle for a better price.
Negotiating prices in Asia can be fun. Local vendors love the thrill of haggling and fighting for a deal. Just remember that appearing too eager or happy about an item is guaranteed to inflate the price. Start as low as possible star (about half the ticket price) so you have room to move. Be prepared to walk away and always arrive early in the morning as the first sales of the day is considered lucky so you will have more chance of securing a good deal.
