Recommendation by Lemi
Take destiny by the hand as you walk along hundreds of stalls selling lucky bracelets, pendants, rings, statues, and customized items at the Jade Market. Jade is believed to bring good luck and long life in Chinese culture, which is why it's an extremely popular gift item, particularly from grandparents to their grandchildren. Trinkets inlaid with the purest of jade stones can cost a small fortune, but many of the smaller items are very affordable. Many of the vendors at Jade Market happily recommend lucky items based on your birthday and the Chinese almanac. Take a jewelry expert or connoisseur with you if you intend on buying big, to make sure you’re getting something genuine. Although jade is the main attraction, many bedazzled shops offer pearls, agate, and coral too! Even if you’re not there to shop, the area is a wonder to behold with their colorful items and bustling activity. Walk over to the preserved colonial-era Police station which has kept its look in homage to the Market’s history.
