LEARN INDONESIAN SHOPPING

You're sure to shop during your trip so learn Indonesian shopping is worth knowing. When shopping in Indonesia bargaining is quite common, but usually when the priced is not marked. Marked price on goods is known as harga pas. Often tourists are charged more than locals, but usually only by a small amount more. Just remember when you are bargaining that a few hundred rupiahs in price difference is only a small amount and not worth getting angry over.
