If you are in SF, shopping in Chinatown is a must.
The beautiful neighborhood will welcome you with bright red festive lanterns and colorful clusters of shops. As one of the top tourist attractions, Chinatown is always packed with travellers and shoppers. You can experience both good food and great shopping here.
You can get great deals on both SF and Chinese souvenirs. From Asian art to antiques, precious stones to fun souvenirs, you can walk away feeling like you've got the best deal! The key to getting the best deal is to negotiate. Yes, negotiate on everything.
Shopping can be more fun especially when you get a great deal. So here are some of my tips on how to find a good deal.
Never speed shop: Don't buy the first thing you like in the first shop. This is because the inventory is similar in most of the shops, so chances are that if you like something, you will get it at other shops as well, maybe even at a better price. It is very frustrating to realize that you paid double for an item which is available on the other side of the market for half what you paid.
I hope these tips and tricks help you in getting the deal of the day. Tell me about your shopping tips too :).
Happy shopping :)
