Stanley Market Tips (33)

Murray house

A Victorian building from the 19th century was dismantled to give place to Bank of China tower in 1982, and moved to Stanley, rebuilt with a few changes, and used as barracks to British troops.

Nowadays, it is occupied by several restaurants and the Maritime museum.

Chek Chue

I verified that Stanley is listed in VT with its Chinese name: Chek Chue.

Respecting that, my notes about Stanley (market and more) are in Chek Chue page

Stanley Market

I enjoy taking the bus to Stanley and as I get off opposite the Markets I always take a wander through. On my last visit I bought some handbags and jewellery but sometimes I dont buy anything! The Market is a selection of open front shops linked by covered walkways.

In my opinion Stanley Market is not the place for "die-hard" bargain shoppers. A bit of extra effort is needed here to talk down the prices. Some shop owners wont budge on price at all. This market caters to tourists and many of the items for sale reflect that, but there are also shops selling more expensive one-off items that you wont find at other markets. Obviously shop owners dont want to "give" them away so dont be surprised if they seem a little annoyed by your bartering.

If you want a t-shirt with your name written on it in Cantonese then you can have that done. There are also a loads of souvenirs (stress balls or chopsticks anyone?) and more traditional chinese craft shops. Beautiful chinese style dresses are also available and a selection of silk evening wear. Paintings and posters are also available.

Stanley Market

Stanley is a fishing village on the south of Hong Kong Island. It's about 25 minutes by bus from Central. Stanley is famous for its busy market. The market seems geared towards tourists, here you'll find souvenirs such as antiques, electrical goods & clothes.

After visiting the market I particulary enjoyed walking along the promenade to the seafront. The area was picturesque with plenty of little restaurants.

Stanley Beaches

There are 3 beaches in Stanley: one more rocks than beach but with a small strip of sand (immediately adjacent to the temple and the end of the market): the second, the City Beach - a long and popular strip - head off in the opposite direction to the market when getting off the bus - it's a few minutes to the beach: the third, and nicest, is a 10-15 minutes walk towards the headland. St Stephen's Beach is on the way to the fort (not open to the public) and the Military Cemetery (you can see St Stephens from the rocky beach and the restaurants) - a smallish cove with safe bathing and virtually no-one on it. Amazing considering the sardines on the main town beach.

Stanley Market

Stanley is a lovely little bay on the south of Hong Kong Island.

Its famous for its market but I have to say I was a bit dissapointed with it. It was not all that big, didn't have that many interesting stalls and I walked round it in about half an hour.

Still, the weather was lovely and warm, it was nice to stroll around the bay sit in cafes and watch the world go by. There are lots of restaurants there for a good lunch although they are repaving the promenade so you may get a view of sand paving stones and drills!

Stanley Market

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.

A Shopper's Heaven

Stanley is located on the outer boundaries of Hong Kong Island and is the mecca of bargain shopping. There are street stalls which is much like an outdoor flea market type setting within the confines of this quaint town. There are also some restaurants, pubs, a Tin Hau Temple, (Tin Hau - God of the sea) and the maritime museum. The shops located within Stanley Market have everything from souvenirs, to jewelry, to clothing, artwork and anything else you can think of. More about the shopping in my shopping link. Below are pics of Stanley Bay and the Tin Hau Temple.

You can't go to Hong Kong Island without going here.

Stanley Market

Nice morning out, Stanley Market is a permanent under cover market that sells the usual clothes, electronics, souveniers etc. It feels a lot less touristy than some of the other markets and is certainly worth a few hours time to stroll around. Nearby you also have repulse bay and can also go via Ocean Park to make it a day out. I went by bus however cabs are so cheap I advise jumping in a cab to save time.

If you are looking for really good cashmere sweaters...and authentic chinese name writing..then the Stanley Markets are the place to go...So much of the stalls are everyday markets...but the sweaters were really well made...and quite a good price...around $10.00US.
We did this as part of a tour...and the 1 hour we had here was not enough...

A short ride away... Charming Stanley Market

You have to take a train to HOng Kong Island, Admiralty MTR station, and from there, the minibus 40 to Stanley Market.

I found this small enclave of shops most charming as they are linked by walkways that make it into a covered bazaar.

You can find most of the touristy, kitschy shops there selling everything from bedlinens, souvenirs, jewellery, art reproductions to outlet shopping, and more...

The minibus ride costs something like 90 Hong Kong dollars and be sure to have exact change as you drop it into a box and the driver doesn't give you any change. The ride through a scenic coastal part of HOng Kong island on a slightly hilly and winding road is quite pleasant and should take you only about 30 mins or so to reach.

There's a seafront promenade of sorts with a number of small hotels and eateries for meals and is really lovely and relaxed.
