I traveled to Hong Kong around Halloween. The best place to be around that time is no other than Lan Kwai Fong-LKF abbreviated. There I found throngs of travelers from all over the world, dressed up in costumes, ready to party! I set about finding a costume for myself and as I landed upon a Sailor Moon costume, one that I loved, the seller lady started the pricing at $48 equivalent. I haggled and finally, I did it! I saved a good $5, with no qualms of conscience. Here is how:
- Learn to haggle as it is part of the culture in most places
- Learn to negotiate in the local language-even a few words in the local language endears you to the seller and they are more likely to look favourably on you and give you a better price.
- Walk away if you are not getting a good deal
“Halloween is massive in Hong Kong. Shopping malls and theme parks embrace the holiday with decorations and events, and street markets stock an array of spooky masks”
