I was really excited to shop in Hong Kong but my hopes were dashed when I priced some items along Nathan Rd. I wanted to buy some jade jewlery and some black pearls and maybe a designer bag. I was hopefull that I would be able to make the jewlery purchases for less money than in the States, boy was I wrong! The jade in every jewlery store I looked in was in most cases more money than diamonds! The cheapest green jade necklace that I could find was $8,000 US dollars and it was on a black cord not a gold chain and it was a very light color jade with a green streak in it - not great by any standard! The markup on most items I was told was due to government tax, the tax was more on mainland China. If you are looking for bargains, stick to the markets no bargains here!
