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...more

When we need some quiet from the frenzy in HK, we hop on the #6 bus in Exchange Square and enjoy our ride to Stanley. This 15++ minute bus ride brings us to the other side of the island where the pace is much slower....More

We got one of the several buses to Stanley. It took about 30 minutes. The market is good with lots of stalls . There is a nice promenade with bars and restaurants across the road. Glad we went but not much to see.

When people think of Hong Kong, most imagine movies
with famous skyscrapers dominating the skyline. The
area widely known as Central is the major financial
hub and entertainment district, which truly lives up
to the saying, “work hard, play hard.” Bars stay open
late into the night and there just happens to be a
street party every weekend. Although everything seems
to be operating at lightning speed, Central is full of

I think you should head to Tsim Sha sui for a tailor as you will have options to choose from and will be spoiled for choice.

Transit Visa at Narita Airport? (122 Replies)
Hi there, Last month I had a 9 hour layover at Narita Airport before heading to SFO. I intend to head out to Narita City for a sightseeing before our departure. I am Indonesian and from what I know, I need a Transit Visa to enter Japan that could be obtained on arrival. However, upon arrival I was advised to stay at the airport because there was no such policy. They told me that transit Visa should be obtained in Jakarta before leaving. Was wondering if this is true. Thank you in...More

Apparently, transit visas are issued when you definitely need to enter Japan strictly for "transit" purposes. For instance, if you land in Narita but your connecting flight departs from Haneda, as there are no flights from Narita to Haneda, and you cannot avoid entry into Japan, the transit visa scheme will be applied (in theory. I can't guarantee on this). Apparently, a transit visa won't be issued to a person who wish to see Tokyo for a day (tourism purpose) for those landing at and...More

From Stanley Market back to TST-YMCA (7 Replies)
There is some changes from our initial plan, instead of from Stanley to The Peak, we may back to TST. Do we use the same route back to TST as we use from TST to Stanley? Is this correct ; From Stanley Market, find the bus stop where all the bus line together, look for bus 6X or 260, take this bus back to Exchange Square, walk to Admiralty Station, and take MTR back. Any other suggestion?

From Stanley take bus 6, 6X or 260 from Stanley Bus Station or 66 (from Stanley Plaza). If taking bus 6, 66 or 6X get off on Queensway outside Pacific Place for Admiralty Station. If you take bus 260 (which doesn't travel along Queensway) get off on Harcourt Road outside Admiralty Centre for Admiralty Station. Buses 6X and 260 are quicker than 6 or 66. Exchange Square Bus Station is the terminus. You could stay on the bus and go to Exchange Square from where you can walk to Star Ferry...More
