Upload & Sell: On
Along the Sacred Way to the Ming Tombs (all the good stuff had been removed).
Locals set up tables to sell cheap-crap trinkets to visitors.
No matter how clever you THINK you are, you will never out-haggle these folks.
And do not give them more than the agreed-on price, because they give change in "old yuan" which can't be used or exchanged by foreigners. And you cannot get the sellers to return your "new Yuan."
Either pay the exact amount, or walk away.
No hagglers in the world are tougher to deal with than the Chinese farmers along the Sacred Way.
