If you are looking for knock-off merchandise and cheap tchotchkies then visiting the Stanley Market is definitely worth it. You can start at either end make your way down the linear path. Many of the stores appear to carry the same items, so do your best to haggle and negotiate for the best price. Start at half the offered price... More

The market was just large enough and the vendors were not overly pushy. The waterfront cafés at Stanley Plaza were the main attraction for us. Beautiful views, food, and drinks.

Arrived just after lunchtime on a Sat to find Stanley Market heaving with people. We opted to make use of a taxi rather than MTR/ferry & bus as the journey is just too long when travelling with young kids...besides there is also the possibility of motion sickness in young kids to consider as well. Stanley Markets are a veritable rabbit... More

Lovely decent side market with lots of bargins to be had especially bags, leather goods and shawls. The venders are open to bargining but not overly pushy. Lovely fun atmosphere for shopping.

Attractive atmosphere, almost a Parisian feel. Easy to navigate markets although things were quite highly priced. I bought a dress (nice to be able to get so many clothes that are made in Italy!) for about 50 times more than I saw it at Fashion Street. We then walked along the waterfront to Stanley Plaza which was bland and deserted... More

We first visited Stanley and Stanley Market four years ago and enjoyed the shopping experience and dining experience. Unfortunately, with few exceptions we found many of the stalls now selling overpriced, low quality merchandise. One is better off with the markets and shops in Kowloon, Wan Chai & Causeway. Bay. We noted that several of the better restaurants had closed.... More

We took a bus ride to Stanley and really enjoyed ourselves. The drive to get there was really interesting with mountains, beaches and narrow roads alongside cliffs. The market was pleasant as there were no vendors yelling at you to come into their shop. Everyone was polite and willing to do a little dealing. We had lunch along the boardwalk... More

Stanley market is a good place to wander around for a while, and to get a temporary respite from the hustle and bustle of hong kong's cbd.

We visited Stanley Market mid afternoon and it was a really pleaseant stroll though the market lanes, very little pressure from the shop keepers and the prices seemed reasonable. Unfortunately it was raining but soon found a shop selling light macs, a bargain at HK$39. We last visited Stanley Market 23 years ago and its still good value for money... More
