Random Street Market

Other small-scale markets and vendors can be found usually in close proximity of the larger, more expensive malls. Besides providing the luxury shoppers a break from all the glitzy malls, they also act as a food station and rest spot that serve to the less-than-stinking-rich shopper. Sometimes you can buy beautiful local crafts at amazingly low prices. Any time you visit an upscale mall, look around and you will discover a couple of more of these small roadside hawkers.
