Chinatown Shopping Singapore

We had a lot of fun bartering for camera lenses and having a laugh with the locals in the markets. They start off very pushy and seem to pride themselves on their salesman tactics although once they realised we weren’t out to buy anything soon had a smile and a joke with us. So have your bartering skills at the ready when you head for some Chinatown Shopping Singapore.
