Not a shop but hopefully you’ll accept it: rickshaws and to a lesser extent people posing as statues etc in tourist areas, why on earth do pay money to get those rickshaws and how on earth are they still entertained by those human statues?

Ah the much coveted “taking the piss and never spending any money” customer demographic, on which all retailers base their success.

It’s also one of the few places that sells actual PC components/peripherals. The staff are a bit over eager but I usually go at least a couple of times a month.
