Brush up on your haggling skills before heading to Petaling Street in Chinatown. Chinatown with its canopied alleyways is crammed with stalls selling everything from knock-off Gucci and Prada to noodles, herbal medicine and dried foods. The atmosphere is steamy and noisy, brimming with traders eager to sell their wares. Haggling trick – step 1: inquire about the price; step 2: take some time to seriously ponder upon the given price; step 3: shake your head and decline the offer; step 4: pretend to leave while informing the trader that the price is too expensive. More often than not, traders will call you back to negotiate.
