Jade Market

Market in Kowloon

Enclosed by looping Battery St, this covered market has hundreds of stalls selling all varieties and grades of jade. But unless you know your nephrite from your jadeite, it’s not wise to buy expensive pieces here. Some of the best buys are not jade at all, but pretty, vintage-y ceramic-bead necklaces and bracelets, or coloured wooden beads with double happiness signs.
