This is such a change of pace from the other side of the island. Where HK city is faced paced and crowded, Stanley is relaxed and relatively laid back. Some come here for the shopping. I came over for a relaxed lunch and a stroll along the quayside.
If you have the time, you can get to Stanley by taking the MTR Island Line to it's end at Chai Wan and catch the 16M minibus. The bus fare is $10HK which can be paid in cash or with the Oyster Card.
