Fool me once, shame on you... fool me twice...

... well there is no fool me twice because if you are a tourist in notorious HK district of cons... Tsim Sha Tsui, the sales (con) folk will not see you again. So it's rip-off time for time. Take BWG's entry about a tourist who ended up paying twice the market price. Just goes to show, do your homework, and don't trust all the small shops. Even locals get done, nevermind the tourists. But since HK is trying to show a more tourist-friendly place, it is good to see they are clamping down hard.
