You'd think **** would be dirt cheap coming from the factories, but they're crazy expensive. Stores charge so much for equipment and even after haggling to get like a 30% price cut you'd get stuff for cheaper off the used market here.

Why do you buy from the factory stores? Go to the marketplaces and haggle like a true Asian! tongue.gif

Never been to a factory store, I went to Beijing last year and there was this section of photography stores downtown. A bunch of stores were taking towards western stores and wouldn't budge on pricing, and the ones that did still wouldn't have gotten any significant savings over the used market here.

High priced electronics are super expensive there, laptops that cost ~$600 here would cost the equivalent of $1000 there.

Still super cheap for clothing and stuff.

That or you're either not Asian, only speak English, or speak in accented Mandarin frown.gif It's sad, but many people do jack up prices if they get the hint that you're a "rich American tourist".
