Korea is a shopper's paradise! Great prices can be found for shoes, clothes, handbags, cosmetic products, skin care products and all kinds of souvenirs. Although department stores and most shops have fixed prices for items, bargaining can usually get a lower price with street vendors and in the major open air markets. However, do not expect the same level of haggling conditions that exist in Thailand. Also, do not forget about Korea's duty-free stores.
I did some survey before I visited South Korea. Things in South Korea were never cheap, especially those made in Korea products. I had told myself to have better "self control" in my retail therapy. It wasn't like my previous trips to Vietnam, Thailand and Indonesia, things were very much cheaper there, and I could allow myself to shop till I drop.
Nevertheless, I am very satisfied with the money that I have spent there. I have bought quite a number of fondest purchases with very best quality.
Though we were poorer now, we never regret in anything we bought in Korea.
Just a reminder to all my readers!
According to Korean beliefs, the rest of the day depends on the first customer of the day. They consider it bad luck if the first customer does not buy anything or in some way disturbs the owner's mood. Being a good "informal ambassador" means trying not to exchange items or haggling excessively during the morning hours.That's all my Korea tour posts. Saranghaeyo!
