Difference in 2 markets
Today I am going to blog about the difference in two markets, the Beijing and Tianjin Culture Street. The Beijing markets have people that are way more persistent. They hardly let you walk down the street without getting yelled at to come look at their product and how they have a good price. They seemed to be really pushy and it made me not want to buy their product. Today we went to Culture Street. This was very calm and peaceful. The people weren't pushy and just let you walk around. The prices seemed also to be cheaper here as well. I enjoyed the market a lot more because it was actually culture stuff they were selling. In the Beijing market they were selling Ipods, cameras, watches, etc. Most Americans don't need stuff like this because we have a lot of it already. The Culture street had stuff that was handmade and really represented what type of culture they were. I really liked that about this market a lot. i didn't even bargain any prices because I felt so comfortable and relaxed that I couldn't do that to them. They also had put a lot of time into what they had made and it wouldn't have felt right to bargain their prices. I didn't mind bargaining in Beijing because they were so pushy and sold fake stuff, like their watches and sunglasses. That is the differences I see in two markets thus far.
