    At night markets such as Ladies' Market and Temple Street Market, even though you might be thinking that you are getting a good price for the stuff you want, you are NOT, BARGAIN, go at LEAST one third of the price that they give you! Unless it really is miniscule like 10 HK dollars....we once bargained down an item from 400HK to 50HK!! So be warned!

    Shopping in Hong Kong is at your own risk - never take anything for granted (including the box you're given by the storekeeper actually containing what you bought!). Always doublecheck everything. Shopping at places that display this sign in theory gives you a bit more of a secure feeling.

    I know Tsim Sha Tsui is one of the famous tourist spots.
    I've been living here my whole life. I don't recommend
    tourists buying electronic goods in that area. They can
    be cheating tourists even though they got the HKTA logo
    at their shops. And their prices are generally higher.
    They just can have different ways to cheat tourists. \
    I'm sure the HKTA booklet has pointed out those
    blacklisted shops. I recommend those chain stores
    like Broadway and Fortress. Prices are more fair.
    Or if you want more cheaper prices, try going to the
    stores in Mong Kok. Many of them are selling parallel
    goods. But watch out the communication problem, most
    of the salesmen there don't speak English well.

    Bargain

    Bargain in Hong Kong is a must activity. The women in the photo all are professional in Bargain. Ms. Wong (pink lady) managed to get discount for her staff up to 60%.

    Never buy a camera in Tsim Sha Tsui. Either they try to force you into the one you don't want after you've paid or they will wrap something else up in the packaging.....
