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

Stanley is a real anomaly for Hong Kong. It has the relaxed seaside environment of Sai Kung, the street markets of Mongkok, mixed with a combination of Central and TST area restaurants and bars. Sprinkle in a nice seaside and a decent beach and you...More

Nothing to shout about - but for a complete change from the hustle and bustle of HK and for a peek at where most of the wealthy live, then go for it. You'll also pass Repulse Bay and beach (nicer than Stanley). DIRECTIONS: Stanley Market...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.

I always take visitors to Stanley. Why? The bus ride along the coast is spectacular as you drive past beautiful scenery, beaches and houses with mountains in the background. Stanley has two areas to shop, both by the sea as it has 2 beaches. One...More

A good day out from the city. Easy to get to on the bus and reasonable cost. Nice promenade, main street and some good bars for a cooling drink on a hot day. The public toilets were a bit "basic" compared to the city.

Take about 45 minutes by bus (depending on route) but well worth the time. Little beach resort with some great restaurants, lots of shops and a large covered market.

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
