If I wanted to buy a jade bracelet or earrings, is Chengdu a good place to buy it (i.e., good price to quality ratio)? And does anybody have a specific place to recommend?
Not sure about Chengdu but Yunnan is definitely good place for Jade especially stuff coming from Burma. My girlfriend is a tourist guide and an expert in Jade (i.e. telling what is fake or not) send me a message if you need some help as we will both be in Chengdu in 3 weeks.
+1 on Yunnan, chengdu isnt best place for that, since there are no jade sources nearby.
