"The deal has been agreed upon... or has it?" Vietnam Shopping Tip by mango13

Vietnam Shopping: 71 reviews and 68 photos

Someone is offering you something you would like to purchase. After some negotiation, you reach an agreement on a fair price of 15000 dong (1 $). Then, when the transaction takes place, the seller says you misunderstood him: the price is 15$. You disagree (this is way too much!), but the seller won't agree on 15000 d anymore... In the end, no transaction takes place.
Apparently, many Vietnamese still haven't discovered they're not doing theselves a favour by this trick
