Things to Buy at The Ladies Market
Ladies market has a huge range of stalls
focusing on all types of goods. Don't miss the chance to buy
discounted t-shirts and jeans as well as a wide range of bags, shoes
and travel goods.
Children's clothes, particularly baby outfits,
ladies Lingerie, from sensible granny pants to lacy thongs, bags
from cloth shopping bags to fake LV handbags, cosmetics, costume
jewelry and unavoidably, touristy souvenirs like Chinese style
cushions and table runners.
Don't forget that if it seems too good to be
true, it probably is. But that doesn't mean you can't have fun
buying some things that may not be all they seem to be!
Clearly understand that many of the brand name goods are
not what they seem to be. There is a brisk trade in
fake brands here and so the buyer should not consider the
brand name when selecting items, rather decide if you like
the item on it's own basis.
The majority items also do not have listed prices so
bargaining is considered normal. Prices can be
adjusted by the vendor according to what they feel you are
willing to buy, so if you look like a "rich tourist" then of
course expect to pay more, or at least be asked to pay more,
it is up to your bargaining skill to see what you actually
pay. A typical level of discount you would expect
about 20 to 30% but up to 50% for bulk purchase.
As some items are available in several stalls don't
hesitate to move on down the road any try somewhere else if
a vendor does not offer a price you find reasonable.
