    Say NO to guides!!!

    by rajanshrestha Written Dec 11, 2008

    Usually, to have a guide with you is great thing, if you can afford to have one. BUT, When you are off to buy something then be careful. specially buying Thangkas, statues, and a few items of luxury, REMEMBER don't take guide for shopping.

    the guides charge about 30-50% extra commission on SALES, so be careful!!!

    Rickshaw commisions

    Another very common thing that will definitely happend to you during your stay in is this: You will take somewhen a rickshaw or whatever to reach a site, and they will definitely bring you in some shop (a shop of a friend or a brother or whatever). Keep in mind that the owner of the shop will pay the driver a commision cuz he brought there some tourist and clearly the prices of the goods will increase...
    So, be strong and tell to the driver that you will not leave the rickshaw! This is the only thing that works out...
