This is the one big mall in manaus. Quite modern and prices are on the expensive side. Worth a look, just for the heck of it.
What to buy: Buy stuff here that you wouldnt buy in a flea market. For everything else, go to the mercado publico.
What to pay: This is wierd, but you can try for a 5% discount if you pay in cash instead of credit cards. Most stores generally give you that discount, even in malls.
Im describing the shops in the main local market, where they sell all kinds of good from spices to animals to handcrafted goods.
What to buy: From spices, handcrafted goods, to illegal animals.
What to pay: Expect to negotiate your prices is an item is not clearly marked with a price tag. If you ask them how much it is, they often give you a mediocre price, but if you tell them how much you want to pay for it, then they usually lower their prices. Still, the market is local price and is VERY cheap.

What to pay: Typical prices for most things. Electronics are high, food is cheap.
