Jade Market and Jade Street

There are about 400 registered stalls in Jade Market selling trinkets, souvenirs, charms and jewellery made of jade, a stone considered to have mystical qualities by many people in Asia. This is a fun place to browse and to buy inexpensive mementos of your visit, but think twice before buying anything costly unless you are a jade expert. Jade Street is actually a part of Canton Road situated between Kansu Street and Jordan Road. Jade and gemstone testing is available at Jade Plaza on Jade Street. A giant jade stone, weighing three tons, has been placed at the junction of Canton Road and Jordan Road as a landmark and you won't miss it.
