Bargain Shopping

When you shop in Malaysia, one thing you will learn while shopping – “bargaining”. Yes, bargain shopping is a trend that many have picked up in Malaysia, simply because one can get a reasonable quality item for half the price or a second hand item with great value.

Malaysia has many places where you can bargain and haggle which has become a norm here, from street bazaars, night markets, flea markets to small shops and boutiques. As bargaining is rather difficult in luxury outlets, these places allow you to hold and check the item, and ask for a price that fits your budget. A few simple tips to bargain and haggle include do your research about the place, don’t show enthusiasm on that item, keep saying “cheaper”, smile and be bold and walk away if the price is not up to your mark!

From antiques, clothes, shoes, books, electronic items, knick knacks to souvenirs and handicrafts, bargain shopping makes your shopping adventure more colourful. Enjoy shopping!
