8. One more thing you should know. If you go shopping in a famous tourism place like Wangfujing Street in Beijing, the first price they gave you will be very high and unreasonable. Once, I tried to buy Crocs sandals, the merchant tried to sell it to me for 1,600 yuan! What? Is it made from gold??? After some bargaining, yelling, and a little drama, in the end I managed to buy it for only 34 yuan! Crazy, right?
