"Foreign money in exchange of better price" Kenya Tourist Trap Tip by angusleeland

Kenya Tourist Traps: 55 reviews and 55 photos

A shop-keeper will tell you that he collect foreign money and would ask you to give him your country's bank note in exchange for a better price for buying goods from his shop. Just ignore his request. It's another trap in making you buying things from his shop.

Unique Suggestions: Suggest that you'd rather pay using Kenyan Shillings or US dollars.

Fun Alternatives: Ignore the asking, just pay one-fifth the suggested price.
