Husband wanted a visor, I stopped at the first stall, $20.00, I squawked, she came down to $15.00, said I would be back. Stopped at another, same visor, $10.00, I offered $8.00, bought for $9.00. Went in a pandora shop to get a bead, $175.00, I bought the same bead for $55.00 back in Daytona
I was super annoyed walking through this because the people will hassle you to buy from them. To the extent of someone putting something in my hands and telling me to buy it because it's nice. I gave it back telling them that I don't want it and ended up leaving because the hassle was nonstop from all vendors. Make... 更多
The straw market is located a few blocks to the right after you depart the cruise pier. We had been warned to say "no thank-you" a lot, so went knowing what we were getting into. We also were very early in the day (9:00ish). We had a lot of fun visiting with vendors (and of course trying to strike a... 更多
Visited in order to buy a few souvenirs for the kids but left with just a token baseball cap. You can buy any sort of legal and not so legal souvenir here.

We bought nothing do to the fact that we couldn't shop on our own without the sellers constantly pushing merchandise on us. It saved us money because there were several things i would have bought without the rude selling... 更多
Purchased a wonderful wood carving, great price the carver was closing up. Unfortunately most of the shops have all the same imported items. Most of the saleswomen were very pushy. Mostly not a pleasant stop.
This is your basic high pressure tourist market. Literally every single booth (and there were TONS) had pretty much the exact same stuff. Some of it was different than the tourist shops but not a lot. They expect you to bargain, so do. Do not take a first price offered and seriously hold your ground because you can literally walk... 更多
Nassau is the murder capitol of the Caribbean, and the Straw Market is cherry on top. Skip it when you go. Nothing to see here, everyone has the same stuff which is mass produced, probably in China.
The Straw Market is a cultural experience that is quite challenging. Everything is packed in a close maze of booths. You get hit from all sides with a few different in your face pushy sales tactics. They get you going in, while in, and when you try to leave. Just remember the following avoid eye contact if not interested, be... 更多
