We're going in July, and well, I love to shop, and cannot wait to spend some cash!
Well alot of things are fakes, and that's alright. In the markets, how much should I pay for an item? I know they ask ridiculous prices and then you gotta bargain, but what's a reasonable price, in comparison for what they first ask? I've heard it's like 10%?
And what are the prices on original clothings and brands there? Can you make good bargains, or are the prices more or less similar to Europe?
I also know there has been alot of problems with returning home with lots of merchandise that is fake. For instance, there was this woman who had bought fake designer sunglasses in Italy, and had to pay a 10.000 Euro penalty for this when she got home, she was pulled aside in the customs. This problem has gotten worse lately, and you often read about holidaymakers that come home, and then have to pay huge fines for buying fake merchandise...
Is this also a problem in China, or is it no worries??
Never been to China before, so I'm excited for this trip!
