"Not to bargin with Uygur people" Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Province Warnings Or Dangers Tip by yirutang


I was told not to bargin with Uygur people because they will get offended if you asked the price of their goods but not buy it eventually.

I found it a bit annoying doing business (buy stuff) with the Uygur(I know it is politically incorrect). They like to change their words and don't have the idea of contract. A little boy who offered me to take a picture with his goat. He told me the price will be 3 yuan but after taking the picture, he said the price is 10 yuan. I argued with him and I was lucky not to get big attention from other Uygur people since it was on very popular tourism spot.

I heard another real story that some tourist get into the same situation as I do and got attention from other Uygur people and finally get robbed.
