    Promoted by the guides as a must see in Hong Kong, I couldn't skip this market. Well, it is a market... Though a little more interested than usual (it was raining out there) I bought nothing. No surprise!

    Fernanda didn't... also. Big surprise!

    Stanley Market: Great Place To Buy Western Styles (& sizes)

    by dancerdeb Written Nov 16, 2011

    This is a GREAT place to buy western style clothing! The bus ride out to Stanley is gorgeous! It's my favorite place to go in Hong Kong! The prices are really good, lots of restaurants right on the beach. They have clothes for everyone, as well as artwork, linens & souvenirs. The linen stores there are fantastic! I bought a beautiful embroidered tablecloth there for $28. US, the quality is wonderful & I can just throw it in the washer. The silk sheet there don't really last that long however, the stitching falls out.

    Stanley Market: Another great market in Hong Kong

    by jlanza29 Updated Jun 21, 2011
    If you have time then make a trip here !!!!

    Hong Kong has several markets and every market has different vibe. The Stanley market is lots of fun, and just like the other markets in Hong Kong you can buy just about anything here. Make sure to haggle on prices also. The market open as early as 8:30 am and runs to about 5:30 pm every day.
    Getting to the market is easy ... jump on the 6a, 6, or 6x bus from exchange bus terminal in central. The ride takes about 20 minutes without traffic. We got here at 9:00 am and had the place all to ourselves but as it got later in the day the market got more crowded. We walked around some bought some stuff and had lunch here. The market has numerous places to eat, at every price level. If you have the time, then do it !!!!

    What to buy: MAKE SURE TO HAGGLE over PRICES !!!!!

  • Stanley Market: Awesome Discounts at Stanlet Market

    by Ask.Pranav Written Feb 13, 2010

    Stanley market on Hong Kong Island is a cluster of about 150 shops which sell a variety of items (mainly clothes and accessories) at discounted prices. You will not fund branched labels here but will get unbranded stuff at good bargains. It is somewhat like Fashion Street in Mumbai but a few notches above.

    How To Get There: You need to get to Central Station and walk a few blocks to the Harbor Exchange Square Bus Terminus and take any bus to Stanley Market. The Bus ride is beautiful and takes you through different parts of Hong Kong. You will see Repulse Bay and you may want to get off and take a stroll on the Repulse Bay Beach. Immediately after Repulse bay is Stanley Market.

    Do note that you cannot bargain in Stanley Market. The prices are pretty reasonable however do check the quality of the item you are buying. I would recommend you stick to Clothes especially smart winter wear which I saw in several shops, linen jackets, accessories such as bags and purses. I picked out 10 neck ties for HKD 100 and the quality was good as well.

    Stanley Market: Shop alone

    by toni28 Updated May 6, 2009

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Stanley market is a well known and popular shopping attraction for both locals and visitors on the south side of Hong Kong Island.

    Early in the morning while my family were sleeping I escaped and went alone to shop here, ha..ha.. but i forgot to bring my digicam, this travel is not complete without any shopping experience, Instead of taking taxi I chose to take mini bus just 30 minutes away from causeway bay.

    Stanley has lots of bargain buys in the main street, you can choose from the locals to international brands of clothings, shoes, chinese craft,bags, souveniers etc... you can ask the special price of any of the items just make sure you know how to make bargaining.

    What to buy: I shopped most for my hubby's shirt, bags for me and stuffs for my kids.

    What to pay: spent big2 discount

    Stanley Market: Small market on southern side of island

    Stanley Market is a street market in Stanley on the southern side of Hong Kong Island. The street is a typical example of a traditional old open-air market in Hong Kong and has since become a major tourist attraction, well known for its bargains. Many of the stalls or shops sell Hong Kong souvenirs as well as clothing - particularly silk garments, shoes and traditional Chinese dress - toys, ornaments, luggage, souvenirs, and Chinese arts and crafts. It's fairly small and is nice to wander around even if you're not planning on buying anything.

    Stanley Market: A Cornucopia of Bargains

    by poetjo Written Mar 13, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    http://www.hk-stanley-market.com/
    Stanley market located on Hong Kong Island is a cornucopia of bargain shopping. Hundreds of street stalls huddled together in this quaint little shopping area town amidst restaurants, pubs, temples and the bay it is a destination for tourists looking for bargains. And, that's exactly what you will find here. Example: I found a cotton burgundy shirt/jacket for HK$10.00 which basically translates to about $US$1.50. Yes you read that right $1.50 and that's not unusual. There are souvenirs, clothing, jewelry, artwork and more that I can't even list all at incredible low prices. These stalls sell at below wholesale as do many retail stores within Hong Kong. If you want to do shopping, this is THE place to go. Of course there are your regular high end shopping malls such as Harbour City in Kowloon though you will pay what you'd pay at home at these malls.

    What to buy: Clothes, souvenirs, artwork, shoes, bags and Oh, did I say clothes?

    What to pay: Below wholesale except on shoes.

  • Stanley Market: Beautiful Artwork

    by proberts9999 Written Nov 26, 2007

    There are a number of stores selling artwork in Stanley Market. There are some beautiful original paintings and the prices are (relatively) good once you hit about the HK$500 mark. Watch out for "lithographs" though- we asked about one print, was told it was a lithograph, and upon closer inspection it turned out to be a color photocopy. It seemed like there were two types of shops: those selling original works, and those selling "lithos" and factory-produced originals, both inexpensive. If you're looking for the latter, check all the shops before buying as the prices for the same items fluctuated quite a bit. The better original shops would not discount much. I waited while a couple tried to haggle over a beautiful HK$900 original oil portrait. The shopkeep agreed to come down HK$100, and only after the couple pointed out the frame was damaged. I was hoping the they'd walk away and I could scoop it up, but they bought it. The nicest original gallery we found was called "Lok Man Art Gallery" at 48-50 Main Street.

    What to buy: Original artwork. If it's expensive make sure it's signed and get a certificate.

    What to pay: HK$200 to HK$40000 (Nice original works starting at about HK$500-HK$1000)

    Stanley Market: South Tip of Island Shopping

    by Flyboy9MR Written Sep 18, 2006

    On the Southeastern end of HK Island, is Stanley. You go through Repulse Bay on the way here by taxi. Lots of "richer" folks live up here. There is also a touristy spot where you can hike through some hills, with a view of the southern shores of the island. In midst of this is Stanley Market. You can buy knick knacks, fresh flowers, etc... typical Asia markets. There are also some decent restaurants out this way - with more of a Westerna flavor. Still fresh seafood, so can't go wrong! The oldest building (in form of a temple) is also here in Stanley.

    What to buy: Flowers. Clothing.

    Stanley Market: Bargain Time at Stanley Markets

    by Mikebb Updated Nov 8, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Stanley Market located on Hong Kong island has been established for many tears, there must be well over 100 stalls selling clothing for men, women and children, also an assortment of gadgets ranging from binoculars, knives, travel goods,ice cream, drinks etc. Prices are low and you are expected to bargain down the price. Many well known brands are on sale, some with the tags cut out.

    by Venus_Swan Updated Mar 3, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    As soon as I got to Stanley Market I ran up nad down the aisles like a mad woman making sure I checked out everything before I spent all my money. The first shops you see there are basically the same shops over and over again. And everyones prices are about the same. It takes about 3 hours to walk it at a nice pace.

    What to buy: 1. Christmas ornaments and animal ornaments made of decorative painted metal and enamel. $2-5
    2. Children slippers with dragon faces and bell$4
    3. Embroidered sheets $20-50
    4. Scarves made of silk, handpainted or pashima, hand knit or fur (I bought for all my friends and they loved them soooo much)$5-40
    5. Colorful Felt new year animal wall hanging $4
    6. Masks made of wood or bone of mythological creatures$10 for small or $30+ for large
    7. Cool boots $15 (leopard print) $15 (blue suede with pretty buttons)
    8. Purses of tapestry and bead work $15+
    9. Custom made stamp of porclein $10

    What to pay: I am not much of a bargain haggler, I just ask "Can you do a little better in price" and they usually round off .
    Or I'll say "No tax today", they laugh and give me a better discount.
