The western come to Afghanistan and other Asian countries they soon discovered that they like testing the goods before they buy them. probably the biggest difference between central Asian and middle eastern and western shopping tradistions is the bargaining .
ever where in the west ,stores sell goods at fixed prices .A shopkeeper would be annoyed if you asked him to sell you something at a price lower than the one shown on the price tag. therefore ,westerners do not really understand bargaining and it is a difficult skill for them to learns.
Many of them either pay the first price the shopkeeper asks for or just walk away because they think the price is too high. however bargaining is a tradition that makes the bazaar seem even more foreign and fascinating to a westerner.
