The advantage of Arab markets is that you can bargain there. It is even necessary to do this since most sellers set the price taking into account the possible bargaining during the sale. If you are persistent, you will be able to purchase a product two or even three times cheaper than the originally announced price. Bargaining is a real show. The buyer leaves and returns during it. The seller wrings his hands and resets the price. You can also bargain in small private shops. But if you decide to do it in a large mall or shopping center, it may be considered rude and disrespectful.
