Owner description: Stanley is very different to other parts of Hong Kong, or completely different from what you think about Hong Kong. Stanley, located at the southern of Hong Kong island, is much more relaxed with beaches, hills and coves. You will find the western atmosphere in this small Chinese town.
Useful Information: Wheelchair access, Stairs / elevator

“Wonderful Views”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2012

While Stanley is a wonderful place to visit, getting there on the Big Bus Tour via Repulse Bay is even better. The road to Stanley is full of beautiful glimpses of islands and ocean and the views from the top of the double-decker open top bus are wonderful. apart from the Market, take the time to visit the beach and walk out on the rocks to get a different perspective. Stanley Plaza and the waterfront has a large number of restaurants, a great ice cream parlor and a Starbucks.

“Enjoyable”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2012

A big part of the allure is the wonderful bus ride around the north part of HK Island -- Repulse Bay, the posh houses, cars, etc., not to mention the exquisite scenery, palm trees and gorgeous flowers.

“Stanley Market shopping is worth a visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2012

Yes, the prices will probably run a little higher as compared to Shenzhen, but all in all, you should be able find what you are looking for. We picked up a couple of beautiful canvas prints and the kids were able to find wallets and electronics to satisfy them. The trip there was a long bus ride, so definitely plan for it.

“Fabulous”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2012

I loved this place. Great shopping and lovely restaurants and bars overlooking the bay. Not too easy to get to by public transport if you are staying on Kowloon.

“Stanley and Market”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012

Stanley market sells the usual array of souvenirs, clothing and some tacky things as well. My wife bought a bargain handbag? Seems a bargain buy one get one free. It is quite cool waking though what is virtually a covered market area. The nearby shops are quite modern and there is an ATM on the 3rd floor of these shops. All I all a 2 hour stay is plenty. Can be easily accessed by bus from the City. The bus ride is well worth the effort to see a bit of the suburbs and the area along Repulse Bay which looks truly magnificent.
