Overview

If you are looking for interesting souvenirs, relatively inexpensive jewellery, Chinese paintings, ceramics, clothing, Chinese tea, teapots and tea sets, and tons of other interesting knick-knacks from all over China, Taiwan, Mongolia, Tibet, Nepal and even India, visit the biggest jade market in Taichung city. Housed in a warehouse-like building packed with long rows of vendor tables, there are parking spaces nearby. Make sure you do some haggling before settling upon your purchase! The Jade Market is only open on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.

This market was recommended by a local. It is a fun little flea market which carries many jewelries, beads and arts. Many things are cheap as the sellers are most likely hand crafting the goods. I bought few nice bracelets for $3 a piece! Great...More

This is the relocated Wenxin road Jade Market. Although you can find lots of nice items here and many of the old dealers have come along and it's even air conditioned, there is something to be said for the old feeling of a traditional jade...More

I've found quality products for souvenir in a good price, much lower than city center shops. Variety of jewelry, specifically for jade and silver. Also, there is a tea shop in 3rd floor that sells high mountain tea, I like the quality of that tea....More

If you are in Taichung over a weekend and need to find a place to spend an hour or so (those pesky hotel cleaning ladies!), wander over to the Jade Market on Wenxin Road. It is about a 10 minute walk from the Tempus Hotel....More
