    Good street market, in shade, Cheap souvenirs; easy to reach by bus from Causeway Bay metro.
    Good market, about 50 stalls. Way cheaper than Temple St night market, it’s in a neat little town right by the beach. A super clean bathroom is nearby for free in the municipal buildings. Got some great things from Gifts Galore stall # 45, nice Filipina lady was very helpful, selling Jade jewelry and statues. Good lunch spot right around the corner where you can along on the beach in the shade. Best prices we saw for small Souvenirs like keychains & magnets. Easy to reach on the 40 bus, 20 minute drive for like $14hk or whatever.

    Stanley needs you!
    Do yourself a favour and support this little market. A bus trip from anywhere in Hong Kong costs about two pounds/four dollars, the people are super-friendly and there are all the HK gifts you need at a great price. It's clear Stanley has suffered post-covid, getting that 63 bus from Fortress Hill is the answer!

    Its a little far out of HK, but worth it
    Probably my favorite market in HK and it’s where we spent most of our money in shopping. Its a 40min uber ride south the HK, but not only is there the market, there is the beautiful coastal town of Stanley. Full of mall style shops, restaurants and a delicious doughnut place. The market has everything, great arts and antiques and a brilliant place for technology. People were so friendly. Highly recommened

    Best market visited in Hong Kong
    Great little market on the other side of the island. Great selection of clothes, electricals, ornamental stuff. From an Australian used to the run of the mill Melbourne and Sydney markets this was very refreshing! Great bus trip over the mountains gives you a great perspective of the high rise of the main CBD but then the affluent area of Repulse Bay. When you get tired you can rest down on the beach front at some great little cafes.

Stanley market does not appear to have survived the pandemic and the absence of foreign visitors/tourists. We used to go every year until 2019 and it was a bustling market with cheap clothes stores and other shops. On a recent weekday late afternoon, the place was almost - eerily - empty, and most shops were either closed or had shut down altogether..pretty sad...

In normal times, the Stanley Market is one of the buzzing, busy street market scenes filled with tourists and curious locals. It is a fun place to spend a couple hours in the leisurely seaside community of Stanley on the southern shores of Hong Kong Island.

Unfortunately, with tourists pretty much boxed out of Hong Kong because of the Covid-19 pandemic, the market is basically dead. Passed by on a Saturday afternoon recently and found only a few people amidst mostly empty shops lining the market street. A sad scene and something hard to imagine when recalling past visits, navigating through shoulder-to-shoulder pedestrian traffic and shops stuffed with shoppers. Not this year I'm afraid.

I guess if you like shopping while on vacation then this is a place you would like to visit. It is just not how I want to spend my time in Hong Kong. We escaped the crowded market and walked past the beach to Stanley plaza where we could sit at a pub and enjoy a bite and a beer while we waited while other tour members had their hour and a half of shopping. Restrooms are available.

Visited the Stanley Markets on 2 occasions during our visit. Great markets which contain all the same items you would see at Temple Street or the ladies market but with out all the hustle and bustle. These markets are open earlier in the day so they make for a great visit whilst you have lunch on the foreshore restaurants.

Stanley Market used to be more of a bargain than it is now, but you can still get great things for a fraction of the price you would back home. The market itself is a maze of small shops and stalls which sell a huge array of things - some of which you never knew you'd need (or want!) Good bargains to be had include pashmina scarves, linen clothes and suitcases. Be warned though - there's a lot of tat there too! My only word of advice would be to barter and, if you think you're not getting a good deal, just walk away - you'll be amazed how many stall owners will come after you to make a sale...

I always enjoy visiting Stanley Market. It's not always about the bargains and the actual goods on sale - it's the whole experience! The bus ride itself is great. Catch the 6 or 6x bus from the Admiralty bus station, sit on the bus' 2nd level, and enjoy seeing the colorful neighborhoods of Hong Kong, zig-zag mountain roads and view of HK's beaches. Stanley itself, despite being a huge bargain basement filled with chinese souvenirs, clothes (both fakes and overruns), shoes, handbags, furniture, paintings, etc. etc., is still a very pleasant area. When I used to live in HK, we'd take the Saturday bus at 10am, lunch at one of the many restaurants or pubs and then shop the whole afternoon. As far as I know, crime isn't a problem (but it still pays to be careful). It's also important to remember to barter but do it nicely. There's nothing the Chinese hate more than a rude tourist. This said, please take time to visit it!
