Jianguo Jade Market



On weekends, locals and foreigners flock to the Taipei Jianguo Jade Market in the hopes of getting a 'steal' for themselves. There are around 300 local vendors selling their own merchandise. A lot of the visitors choose to get a ruyi for themselves. The 'ruyi' (Jade in Chinese) is considered an auspicious talisman and is usually worn by the locals around their neck.

There are also numerous items of jade like necklaces, charms, bracelets and more. Once you're here, try not to miss the jade Buddha. You can also buy local paintings in Jade Market. Patrons of this crowded market leave the place with smiles after being surrounded with such exquisite gems!

It is key to negotiate the price of the items you're purchasing here, but the style of negotiation differs greatly from what tourists may experience in places like Mainland Chine or India. You could save a few pennies here or there, or negotiate a price cut by buying more than one item. But, the Taiwanese are famed for being friendly, respectful and kind. That being said, most items are priced fairly, considering the value of the raw materials and the craft involved in making them.

We do recommend you walk the full length of the market before buying anything because, as you can imagine, there are a lot of similar items on sale at various vendors and you may see a better or cheaper version of the item later on in your visit to Jianguo Jade Market.



travel through the authentic local Guanghua Jade Market (Mon~Fri) or Jianguo Holiday Jade Market (Sat and Sun), enjoy this culture walk while shopping for beautiful Jade products. 

24 Hours toll-free number of customer service with English and Japanese languages is 0800-011765.
