If you visiting Yaolin Caves, you will be forced to visit their shopping area in any way. That is the thing about Chinese sightseengs - you go to a place and eather you want or not the shop will be placed right in you way, so you have no chance of missing it!
Consioder it part of the tour (it does not matter if you travel alone or in a group with a guide).So after you finish your underground tour and come up the surface the lane will lead to some traditional chinese-style architecture buildings through which you should pass in order to get out. And that will be the shop! They even have a guide for that which will stop you before entrance and explain you what things you'll find inside (so here is your 5 minutes gone just for listening advertising).
What to buy: they sell same sort of stuff you find everywhere else in this kinds of shops, some craft works, jades, semi-precious stones, combs, swards, egg-stones... etc. Oh, and in this particulat one they have some special local "home-made" dishes. I could not understand what was it, and I wasn't interested in shopping in anyway. But you might be!
What to pay: remember - bargain! even if you see a price tag. And they do have price tags in that shop, but expect to pay 3 times less for most of the things.
