- Do wear comfortable walking shoes (some you’ve already broken in) or your feet will be aching by the end of the day.
- Wear sunglasses and carry a bottle of water.
- Take the biggest hand bag you got so that you can put in all your clothes together in one bag and avoid taking Plastic bags from the vendors.
- Bargaining skills! Do not hesitate to put your first bid as low as 50% of the shopkeeper’s bid even if he gives you a look. Be as stingy as you can!
- Always examine the clothing item from all angles and sides, including the bottom, and look for missing pieces, torn edges or any major defects.
- Visit the market during the day time as it will be difficult to determine the correct color of the item you are planning to purchase when its dark.
- Avoid buying Jumpsuits and Trousers as they might not be of proper fitting. Better to take a measuring tape if you are planning on buying one.
