Tips

 

Going food shopping is a tourist attraction in itself. Take some time to check out local candy, food, and drinks (teas) in the stores. Some of these items make for cheap, fun, and tasty souvenirs.
Buy larger sizes of water and refill. They are usually half the price of the smaller bottles.
FYI: Most of the Convenience stores offer simple and fresh sandwiches on good bread!
