Get rid of the prejudice against haggling in foreign countries, they are not laughing at you. In the moments of haggling you are living part of an extraordinary culture.
The art of bargaining dates back to times before money. It is something similar to the ability to speak in humans, an intrinsic element in our social relationships.
Because in the end, what is haggling? Put a price on our desires, the one we are willing to pay.
Bargaining is a deeply rooted custom in North African countries, although the practice also extends to sub-Saharan African countries such as Kenya, Tanzania or Uganda. Haggling can be a pleasure or a real headache for the tourist, but on many occasions, something unavoidable when buying.
The advice is to enjoy and learn to negotiate with practice to obtain a better price, but without a doubt, the main objective is to have fun.
