Zoo Market

Zoo Market. A maze of shops that seem neverending. Here you come to bargain and sift through knock off brands of clothes, shoes, accesories, et cetera. Everything is really cheap. I managed to get two pairs of vans shorts for 100 yuan (about 16USD. At home they range 50-60 USD per pair).


To bargain it is necessary to have someone with you that speaks chinese. I know next to none, so I just watch Anna negotiate, she then translates what's going on. I think after this trip I will be looking into chinese for a language come fall semester. It's pretty much guaranteed that we will be back here in the coming years which, "thanks," and, "no thanks," just doesn't cut it.
