Jade Market

Unlike some of the touristy markets in Hong Kong this one is an actual market, though a rather ugly one.  It is, and looks like, a collection of covered stalls under a road flyover with only a rather gauche red and green temple gateway added to one corner to give it some "Chinesy" theme.

Inside you will find row after row of little stalls covered in tiny trinkets, mostly jade but also including other similar hand worked precious items such as crystals, bone and silver.

Don't buy anything unless you either know what you are doing or really don't care what you have spent as this is a place with as much pretty junk as valuable stones.

Open hours and entrance fees:

There is no fee to enter the market and inside the stalls are open

Getting there:

Take the MTR Tuen wan line to Yau Ma Tei station then follow the signs, it is about 10 minutes walk.  First south along the main road, then turn right at Public Square street after about 5 minutes.  Go past the quite interesting garden and temple and continue on until you get to the community centre were you turn left and walk past the basket ball court.  You are then facing the market.

Near by:

Temple Street Night Marketis the best known night market in Hong Kong and is very close, but only open in the evening.
