Bus 973 from TST Kowloon was a comfy smooth 80 minute ride. Stanley Market was clean and surprisingly cheaper than Mongkok stalls. There are fewer stalls but if you need only a few items: Chinese souvenirs, shoes, dresses, art work... Stanley Market is a great place! Go before lunch time! Less crowd and not too hot.

The best markets I have ever been too in a very long time... clean, great value for money for those souveniers you need... so much culture... and restaurants close by for a meal... another must see!

A wonderful market to visit . Definitely not a place where you are going to get bargain basement deals and you'll probably get ripped off as a tourist if you are not travelling with a local. Nevertheless still a fun place to visit . The art work is stunning and I bought myself a wonderful painting of Hong Kong at... More

Visited Stanley for the day and went to the market, found this one far better than temple street night market, better quality items and reasonable prices. Would definitely recommend going, takes about an hour on the bus.

We only had a short time at the market but it was well worth the visit. The quality and prices and assistance of staff was excellent and if you cannot find a bargain you are not trying. We went by taxi and came back by bus as it took us on a tour of the various areas for about an... More

All in all, the Stanley area has everything you need for a break. You can choose between walking around and enjoy the market, swimming at the beach or just chillin at the bars and restaurants at the coast side. Top location

I heard this was the best to go to. I felt it wasn't worth the effort it took for me to get out there.

The best part about the market is the number 6 bus ride from Central bus station to the market. Fantastic views and quite thrilling due to the narrow roads and sheers drops. All for just over AUS$1. The market themselves are quite good with the highlight for me being the linen shop for handkerchiefs and napery, and the gadget shops... More

More little shops to barter for, based on the "other side" of HK island. I felt the prices were a little cheaper than Kowloon markets and there're were some bargains to be had, especially if you wanted a new handbag! Good pizza also to be found here!

We had a very pleasant day in Stanley, initially going around the market for a couple of hours, and then having lunch before the bus ride back to Central. The market is fun. There are a lot of stalls selling the same items, so shop cannily and don't be afraid to bargain. Today a toy helicopter was $200 at the... More
