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: Stairs / elevator, Wheelchair access

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 have a great destination (attraction area) to visit while in Hong Kong.

We really enjoy Stanley and try to visit several times a year to spend half a day or so and regularly send our friends and family there when they visit Hong Kong. We consider Stanley to be a top 10-15 attraction in Hong Kong, something that visitors should try to make time for.

It is very close to Ocean Park and Aberdeen thus it can make a decent stop after visiting our famous theme park or you can just head out for a morning or afternoon trip. There is not enough to do/see to spend the entire day here. Just make it a couple of hours to 1/2 day trip.

Love Stanley and I try and visit Stanley everytime I visit Hong Kong.
The stalls obviously target tourists but all the same, there are always something cute, quaint or unusual to be found.

It is quite cool to find your way around the little lane ways.
3 things that I like?
1. The bus ride from Admiralty - on a double decker. Lovely view of Hong Kong
2. The feel and ambience
3. There is a wanton noodle shop that has absolutely the best wanton noodles.

I went to Stanley Market last week, using the No 6 Bus from the Central Bus Exchange about 800 metres from the Star Ferry Terminal and not far from the Central Train Station. Bus trip took about 20 minutes and was very scenic. I enjoyed Stanley Market very much having visited the Ladies Market the day before. Things at the Stanley Market are well presented (probably due to the fact that this seems to be a permanent market and not dismantled everyday). My husband managed to get some very good items and was able to bargin for them. I did note that the prices at Stanley seem to be cheaper than at the Ladies' market prior to bargaining and some stalls at Stanley will bargin but others do not. Overall I did not find items that expensive. There are other attractions at Stanley, it has a promenade beach area where one can have tea, coffee, snacks or a meal. It is a pleasant place to pace an afternoon.
