"No trying on of clothes in most markets!" Shopping Tip by lindyz

Shopping, Hong Kong: 36 reviews and 20 photos

I had been told that most market/stalls do not hang actual change rooms for you to try on clothes. Even though this was the case, we did come across a few with change rooms.

BUT .... most market stalls also DO NOT allow you to actually try clothes on in the store over the top of the clothes you were wearing! I found this very frustrating and I do not see what the problem with that is. Surely if I was to try something on in the store and maybe damage it, then I would understand that I would be buying it, whether I liked it or not! In light of this, I bought a few items of clothing that when I tried them on back at the hotel room .... DID NOT FIT!!!
