1. It is not that easy to tell apart from the genuine and sham pottery, thus don’t covet the cheap one or you may lose.
2. You can bargain with the vendors when shopping, especially those sell the tourists souvenirs and folk costumes, but never do that in supermarket.
3. Never believe in the strangers who recommend any service or commodities to you.
