I bought a scarf for 13 rmb or 80 pesos in a sidewalk vendor in Kunming.
I saw exactly the same scarf in a boutique shop called “EGG” in my country, Philippines. Its price is around 200 pesos.
This is a simple reason why a good economy counts. Hahaha. The same reason why it is reasonable to shop a little when in another country especially when you think it will be pricey in your country.
