I really like the lacquer boxes we bought, pearls, chops that have your name inscribed with the red ink pot. Tell him to go to the Pearl Market...we paid 5 US dollars for pearl bracelets..have him grind a pearl between his teeth..if gritty it is real. I like all the jewelry we bought. They will string pearl necklaces while you wait...pay around 10 -15 dollars max. Whatever price they say offer 1/4..you will probably settle for around half. They are extremely aggressive in selling..one shop keeper even hit my husband on the back when he walked away! Silk market....he bought Tommy Bahama shirts.around 7 dollars each and he really likes them.
