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.

The first wonderful part about Stanley is the bus trip to get there. It is such a narrow winding road that at times you wonder how two vehicles can pass one another, but they do. Quite a thrilling and scenic ride. If you sit on...More

Lovely, somewhat quaint and quiet town by the see. The "famous" market is rubbish, so you can forget it but the setting and the views are beautiful.

Everyone who goes to Hing Kong should take the bus to Stanley. It shows you another side of life here and a complete contrast from the hustle and bustle of the city.

From the craziness of the city to a lovely, cooler, quieter seaside town - bliss. The market is very good, better than any we found in the city - the owners serve you instead of trying to get every penny out of you, plus much...More

I haven't tried the junk boat over there. I know there was one around Tsim Sha Tsui but I am not sure it stopped servicing or not. I regard taking the boat in Tai O is much more fun in my mind.
