5. If a shop sells generic gifts that don’t look handmade or authentic, it’s likely a tourist trap


Many gift shops like to cut corners and make more money off their naive customers by reselling merchandise they bought from a retailer in China that you can purchase yourself online for a fraction of the price. As we’ve written above, avoid crowded touristy areas that have many gift shops located on the same street, they will sell overpriced items that are not made locally.If you see that a shop sells cheap plastic keychains, poorly printed T-shirts and awkward-looking magnets alongside seemingly-authentic handmade merchandise, it’s best to avoid for the same reason. Instead, look for small specialized craft shops or a market with local artisans to make the most unique and authentic purchases.
