Some of these goods look just like the real thing but there are three indicators that they are fakes

1) Where are they for sale ? Designer items are usually only sold in an upmarket outlet in a prestige shopping area - The 'Night Market' is unlikely to have the real thing

2) The finish - usually these copy products are of poorer workmanship

3) The price - no one is going to sell top branded goods for USD 5.00

Be very careful of this kind of merchandise as some countries, eg USA, treat this very seriously and if you are arriving there on a tourist visa and are found to have these copy products in your possession your visa will be revoked on the spot and you will not be allowed to enter the country

Other countries like France, which is famous for designer brands impose a VERY HIGH fine if you are found to have this kind of merchandise..
