Is jade market safe for single female?

I will be in Hong Kong for 2 days in December following a business trip. I am going on a tour for one day to see big Buddha and would like to find some inexpensive souvenirs at the jade market. I will be by myself as a solo female. Is it safe to go there by myself? I will be staying in the Causewaybay area.

Just watch your wallet, for pickpockets and merchants alike. Otherwise very safe.

Apart from pickpockets, Street crime is almost non-existent, particularly in tourist places.

Even pickpocketing is not a huge problem, we rarely hear of incidents. But it does happen. As for general safety, absolutely no problem at all. Also note that the Jade Market takes place in the day is finishes off by late afternoon. As such, you'll be visiting during daylight hours if this is of any comfort.

It's a pretty safe city as there is always heaps of people around - day or night. You won't have a problem ..
