"In Antananarivo, Antsirabe cities, streetvendors.." Faritanin' Antananarivo Tourist Trap Tip by Norali
Faritanin' Antananarivo Tourist Traps: 2 reviews and 2 photos
In cities such as Antananarivo and Antsirabe, streetvendors may be a concern. I find them a bit intrusive sometimes.
Fruits are only food items you will buy from them. Pay attention to weighing though :-) I remembered of a practice on tangerine. Some streetvendors injected water with a syringe needle so as to fill interstices between tangerine slices. That way, one tangerine weighed more than it should be. Bargained price was not a problem for them. I don't know whether this is still topical. This used to happen in the past. I still laugh thinking of it *lol*
Beware of fake gem stones sold in the streets, esp. in Antsirabe.
Unique Suggestions: Bargain the prices of stones
Ask to peel a tangerine. Choose the fruit by yourself ad peel to see.
Fun Alternatives: For stones, ask to go to established shops OR learn how to recognize true from fake stones.
For fruits, pay attention to scale system. Buying fruit is NOT something I discourage you to do. Then, common sense, folks: wash the fruit, peel it then, only eat.
