How it works:
- There are all kinds of fakes (luxury, electronics, medical, cosmetics, etc) and even entire shopping malls dedicated to such products.
Places to beware:
- Anywhere (e.g. Sao Paolo – fake luxury products; Parana – fake caps; Nova Serrana, Franca – fake shoes; Rio Grande do Sul, Santa Catarina States – fake apparel; Southeast/Central Brazil – fake car and bike parts; homes – fake medical, cosmetics; Northeast Brazil – fake alcoholic beverages, etc)
What to do:
- Learn how to separate the wheat from the chaff, or only visit licensed, reputable shops.
- Alternatively, GetYourGuide (leading day tours platform) has some shopping tours.
