Masai Market

Masai Market is also called 'Tuesday Market', which is in the capital city of Kenya - Nairobi. There are over fifty Masai women who sell traditional wares including beadwork and baskets. In Kenya's market, even in some stores, bargaining back and forth is very natural matter. Art of bargaining has a very deep foundation in Kenyan culture, and was considered as must-be commercial skill.

This is during the anticipation it is not a kind of affronts. The initial price is frequently raised, and was considered as the first step of long bargains. I like to buy handmade crafted baskets. You can find the handmade baskets in every place. The difference and variation of the size and the color are very big, but everything is special! For Kenya’s tourist, the decorative carving is possibly the goods which receives the most welcomes. Each decorative carving has its different style and different material used. When you purchase such a piece, it is worth much more compared to the actual quality and the price.

The Kenya market has traditional handicrafts, marvelous jewelery, beautiful decorative carvings, best coffee, precious gems, furniture, attractive cotton material and the native music. Do not miss it!
