I try to get over to Stanley every time I'm in HK. The 260X (express) bus from Central is by far the best way to get there - cheap, fast, air conditioned and great views over the coast and posh houses along the way. OK, it's touristy, but if you poke around the shops, there are some great bargains, particularly... More

Went there from Wan Chai, where we had our apartment. A tip - if you are taking the small public bus number 40 take it from Causeway Bay (point of origin). We tried to catch it from the HappyValley Racecourse stop and had to wait a while as five mini buses went by at full capacity (I think 15 pax).... More

For those who've been before, the market is reduced in size, but is therefore less frenetic & not as harassing! There are still items to buy including linen & cashmere as well as the obligatory copy handbags. However, nearby there are a good range of bars & restaurants at reasonable prices allowing you to sit & people watch. Although now... More

After the Bus ride to Stanley, which is fantastic in its own right. The Stanley Markets are not huge but they have a good atmosphere. You were allowed to look around without being touted like at most of the other markets and the store holds were willing to bargain on prices. Defiantly the markets to visit in Hong Kong.

A nice little market to visit. Worth it for the scenic bus ride along the coast. Some good bargains but not as cheap as night market. For eats there is a small local canteen in an alley just off the market. Full of locals. Great atmosphere and good food at good prices. Filling bowl of noodles and dumplings just HKD23.

If you are adventurous take the bus from the HK station and sit in the front seats up top for a thrill ride. the winding, narrow roads make this a fun trip. There is great scenery on the way. Once at the market I found the quality to be a little better then the other markets but there was much... More

A lovely quiet area, nice to get to on top of the double decker bus from Central for stunning views along the way. You can browse around the market for bargains and eat at the nearby restaurants with a view of the water. A good escape from the crowded streets! If you like beaches there are 2 bays along the...

I visited Stanley Market as part of a tour and we were only allotted 40 minutes. There are numerous shops with a variety of silk, cashmere and blend pashmina scarves and shawls. You can haggle to have more items for the price. There are other stores and souvenir shops in the market area. Behind the market is a street boarding... More
