You should know and follow a number of rules to make a high-quality and at the same time budget shopping in Bolivia. You should definitely bargain with sellers in the market. Locals are sure that all tourists are rich. Therefore, the prices of their products are inflated initially. The bargaining between the seller and the buyer is appropriate and expected. If you want to bring an original souvenir with a local flavor from Bolivia, then you should remember to keep a receipt for such goods. This applies to stuffed animals, antiques, and antique coins. Coca leaves are prohibited from export from Bolivia. If you buy woolen items, you need to carefully examine the product for the quality of its dressing. Low-quality products can cause allergies.
The main part of the stores is open from 8 am to 7 pm in Bolivia. Store owners determine the time of the lunch break at their own discretion. Large shopping centers are located in the cities of La Paz and Sucre. Some supermarkets operate around the clock. You can pay for your purchases with local boliviano money or US dollars. Currency exchange is possible both in Bank branches and in large shopping centers. It is better to import dollars to Bolivia as tourist checks. They are cashed in Bank branches or in retail establishments. You can also pay for purchased items using a credit card. However, the seller may require the original or a copy of the passport in this case. Copyright www.orangesmile.com
