“Still the Best Market”
Reviewed May 30, 2013

Having taken the Hk$10 bus from Central to Stanley wandered through market which was full of colour and stalls selling the very gifts you wanted to buy for family and friends. A quick haggle, (well for me it is otherwise I walk away), the seller is paid and the gift is yours. Now comes the difficult bit how do I get it home I'm already over my luggage allowance! Never mind onto the beach, have a paddle and a pint back on bus to Central.

“Trip to Stanley Market”
Reviewed May 28, 2013

A little far away, but well worth the trip. You can find some great local souvenirs. Make sure you bargain to get the best price.

“Poor”
Reviewed May 27, 2013

Poor market, The same items on sale at other markets for less, Shopkeepers unwilling to barter or give you a better price for multiple items, Save your time and visit the other night markets on HK, Stanley itself is lovely and a break from the hustle of hk.

“Bit of a disappointment but.....we did enjoy bus run!”
Reviewed May 27, 2013

Wouldn't necessarily agree that this is one of the "must do" actitivites in Hong Kong, although would have to say that the trip on the bus to get there was very interesting, picturesque and therefore worthwhile.

“Tat and treasures in equal measure”
Reviewed May 26, 2013

Great market to while away an hour or two. Lots of jade, etc, but check each stall since most have same items avilable but at different prices. Haggling allowed. Stanley a lovely beach venue and worth the 20 min taxi trip to get there.
