    Good street market, in shade, Cheap souvenirs; easy to reach by bus from Causeway Bay metro.
    Good market, about 50 stalls. Way cheaper than Temple St night market, it’s in a neat little town right by the beach. A super clean bathroom is nearby for free in the municipal buildings. Got some great things from Gifts Galore stall # 45, nice Filipina lady was very helpful, selling Jade jewelry and statues. Good lunch spot right around the corner where you can along on the beach in the shade. Best prices we saw for small Souvenirs like keychains & magnets. Easy to reach on the 40 bus, 20 minute drive for like $14hk or whatever.

    Stanley needs you!
    Do yourself a favour and support this little market. A bus trip from anywhere in Hong Kong costs about two pounds/four dollars, the people are super-friendly and there are all the HK gifts you need at a great price. It's clear Stanley has suffered post-covid, getting that 63 bus from Fortress Hill is the answer!

    Its a little far out of HK, but worth it
    Probably my favorite market in HK and it’s where we spent most of our money in shopping. Its a 40min uber ride south the HK, but not only is there the market, there is the beautiful coastal town of Stanley. Full of mall style shops, restaurants and a delicious doughnut place. The market has everything, great arts and antiques and a brilliant place for technology. People were so friendly. Highly recommened

    Best market visited in Hong Kong
    Great little market on the other side of the island. Great selection of clothes, electricals, ornamental stuff. From an Australian used to the run of the mill Melbourne and Sydney markets this was very refreshing! Great bus trip over the mountains gives you a great perspective of the high rise of the main CBD but then the affluent area of Repulse Bay. When you get tired you can rest down on the beach front at some great little cafes.

    Great shopping trip
    Great stop off in this wonderful market. Clean, varied and lots of different shops and stalls from food to gifts and gadgets, clothing and art. We stopped and a very friendly man writing Chinese writing on scrolls which we had our names done and the quality was superb. Thoroughly recommend.

    Stanley Markets
    Stanley markets has always been a favourite for us. You can take a bus for an hour up and an hour back. Or catch a taxi for $110HK one way and 25 min. There is only one new shop here in the last 5 years since our last pre covid visit. Several have closed. You can find similar items in the city markets but here the shops are better and more established. There was not a lot of people for a weekend and few tourists here or in Hong Kong in general. Place lacked the spark it has in past. But still great bargains to be had and we found a number of jewellery items and cloths. At shop 28 Chi Wai Co. where I have bought many items of clothing in the past at very cheap prices. Lets say a known shirt for $22HK that is $80 Aus. Bought two shorts that need adjustment. It was done free while we had lunch. Some of the bigger names who were on the outside of the market such as H&M are gone. Well worth a look and a hunt for that bargain. Lots of places to have a lunch or a beer

    Great bus ride to the market and lovely views
    Stanley Market isn’t what it used to be, A lot of the market stalls and the old charm it had isn’t there anymore but it is still a worthwhile day out. The bus ride is well worth the visit alone. If you’re in Kowloon you can catch the star ferry for a few dollars over to Hong Kong and use the walkway over the bridge to get to the bus station at Exchange Plaza. Take the double decker bus no. 260 (express) 6, 6A or 6X for another few dollars . Sit at the front for a great view. The water front and pavilion at Stanley markets are lovely and a few good things at the market stalls. Not the variety and quality it used to be though. I can recommend a drink at the Smugglers Inn on the waterfront for an interesting resting stop. It’s a nice half day trip.

Just a 50 minutes bus ride from Central, you can step into a laidback village type of life in Stanley Market.

You can explore the shops in the market and Stanley Plaza, which boasts a number of eateries. There are also a few restaurants along the seafront towards Murray House and the Pier, next to the Tin Hau temple.

There is also a small cha can teang called Si Yik, which serves toast and noodles with milk tea and is usually open till 1230 pm.

Check out the souvenir shops, as well as the 3-4 art galleries. The shops are open most days and, of course, are busier on the weekends. Do watch out for cyclists who illegally cycle along the pathways between the shops - one of them actually rode into my wife, bruising her shoulder.

Access is easy, with minibus 40 from Jardine Bazaar in Causeway Bay and bus 6 from Central, among others.

After reading the extensive reviews both pre and post covid, I suppose I was expecting a little more than a meandering bus ride along a pretty coastline with a slightly zealot bus driver, followed by a quick walk up and down a pseudo blackpool esque promenade of some touristy burger and pizza joints and some well worn local restaurants. It definitely had an old colonial feel about it and not in a good way. The market is around 50 stalls grouped together, often repeating the same wares every 10 meters. A occasional bohemian piece in a gallery here and there, but definitely a place that's seen its best days. Note that should you venture via bus from Central station, you pass the 'Repulse' beach on the way, which looked quite nice for a stop and walk for next time. Better use your time to visit another island or a better tourist spot.

I almost skipped this as part of my hop-on-hop-off bus tour as I wasn’t interested in shopping. I only stopped to get lunch & was pleasantly surprised at the lovely waterfront community.
