It may be a captivating shade of green so shiny as to be impossible not to want to reach out and touch it but is it the real deal? The answer can go either way in these jade markets – you can find an ancient hand carved ornament or a piece of glass in the style of and the prices vary accordingly, so if you’re not a jade or jewellery aficionado then you may want to stick round the bottom end of the scale.

Jade comes in a range of shades from dark green to yellow or white and because of its traditional link to good health long life and love, is seen round wrists and hanging from throats and ears all over China, so lots of travellers want to pick up a piece to bring home. The 400 stalls here know how popular they are with visitors, which is another good reason to opt for the bottom of the pricing scale, but the markets still provide a way to come into contact with a livelier, grittier side of all flash Hong Kong.
