Lao Jie Ling

I cannot give you a precise location, because it doesn't have a name. We ended up stopping at a small farming outdoor restaurant for lunch. The restaurant is located close to the mountain scenic area, alongside the path up to our shuttle bus site. It was tucked away into the back corner of this little farming village. The farmer had a home, where his wife, daughters, mother, and grandmother all cooked the meal (for 27 people!!). Outside the home, there were little tin-roof shelters like you see at a park, and three tables with plastic/little metal stools surrounding them. We all sat on the stools and ate the delicious food as they served us about 8 different dishes per table. Rice, vegetables, chicken, fish, mushrooms, bread. They had it all! So good.

Zhenping Jade Market

This is a massive ancient marketplace, with hundreds of shops set up into long rows of buildings along the street. It's known as the Jade Market, but there are actually a ton of other products sold along there as well. This is where a lot of the merchants buy their jade in bulk from the makers, to then re-sell to consumers in jewelry stores. You are supposed to get a pretty good discount here, although I didn't find anything. The history of the place, the small carnival going on nearby, and the sweet people made it worth our while though :)
