    Stanley is a seaside community on the southern side of Hong Kong Island. When the British took possession of Hong Kong in 1841, there was a community of over 2,000 people living here. The Chinese name for this seaside village area is Chek Chue. However, the British gave it the English name after Lord Stanley.

    Today what you find at Stanley is a relaxing place to spend time near the sea. There are a couple of good beaches, St. Stephen's Beach and the larger Main Stanley Beach which also has a water sports centre. You'll find one of HK's most popular street markets, the Stanley Markets, which has a covered walking lane, nice for rainy days. There is a nice promenade area lined with restaurants and good views of the sea. Additional shopping and eateries can be found at the Stanley Plaza complex just past the promenade.

    Those interested in historical attractions in the area will find the old Tin Hau Temple just past the Stanley Plaza. There is a tiny Tai Wong Temple sandwiched between the Plaza and waterfront restaurants. The colonial period Murray House and Blake Pier, both of which were originally in the Central district have been relocated here to Stanley, providing a bit more to see while you are here. The Murray House is used for yet more restaurants and retail shopping.

    Looking for a bit more, there is a large public park and garden area called Ma Hang Park just west of the Murray House. Nearer to St. Stephen's Beach, you will also find the Stanley Military Cemetery and Hong Kong Museum of Correctional Services.

    To visit Stanley from the main areas of Hong Kong, best to take a bus (6, 6A, 6X or 260) from Exchange Square in Central or a taxi to save time.

    Harbour City is a huge collective shopping space occupying the lower level floors of several large buildings along Canton Road between the China Hong Kong City building and the Star Ferry Pier. It includes 2 million sq. feet of shop space sprawling through the Ocean Terminal, Ocean Center and Gateway Arcade. Opening hours are around 10am to 10pm daily.

    This mall is massive and takes hours simply to walk the full floor space. There are around 450 retail shops, 70+ restaurants and eateries, an art gallery, observation deck and two hotels. It is also directly connected to the cruise terminal.

    In recent years, Harbour City has become a favourite venue for mainland Chinese shoppers. At times walking the halls of the mall has felt daunting due very crowded conditions often found here. However, at present as the city deals with the Coronavirus outbreak and the lack of tourists in the city, Harbour City is rather quiet, making for much more relaxed visits and shopping for local Hong Kongers.

    Worth note that Harbour City regularly decorates the mall front facing the Star Ferry Pier with interesting seasonal and holiday decorations. More decor is usually found within the mall interior but out in front of the Star Ferry Pier is where you find the best. Related, presently, there are several works by the French urban artist Invader scattered around the Harbour City properties. Just keep your eyes peeled for his signature pixelated video game characters (ie Pacman and Space Invader) found inside and outside the mall.

    Note: You'll find a list of the businesses with shops and restaurants at Harbour City on their website.

    IFC is a luxury and high-end shopping mall in Central District that has an interesting Orient Express themed Christmas decoration programme for the 2021 holiday season. There are a few smaller displays scattered around the mall. However, the main display area is found in the oval atrium area.

    What you find here is a make-shift train station with ticket collection booth, platform as well as a train engine and carriage car. Some history of the Orient Express exhibited at the back of the station for the history buffs.

    Overall, this is a pretty good change of pace from the traditional Christmas themes and decorations they've done in past years. It is worth a look-see if you plan to be at IFC between now and the end of the holiday season.

    This is a feature street market in Mongkok located just north of Prince Edward West Road, around a 5 minute walk from both Prince Edward and the Mongkok East MTR Stations. The Mongkok Flower Market has dozens of shops and is worth seeing anytime of of the year. However, it is particularly interesting now during the Chinese New Year season.

    At this time of year, the flower market is thriving with shops and added stalls filled with seasonal flowers, plants and decorations. You'll be able to see daffodils, orchids, chrysanthemums and holiday specials including Narcissus, peonies, kumquat (mandarin orange) plants, bamboo shoots, colourful willow stems and cherry blossom stems amongst others.

    Do expect crowds when you plan to visit the Flower Market but especially during the Chinese New Year - to a point of being uncomfortable in the evenings and weekends. As such, consider midday weekday visits during CNY when things are more manageable and its easier to take pictures.

    This high-end luxury mall features many designer stores & great restaurants. It is conveniently accessible by many of the luxury hotels, like Upper House & JW Marriott. For Goyard lovers, this one of 2 locations of Goyard Stores in Hong Kong.
    There are lots of food options at this mall, but our favorite was Dim Sum Library, located on the ground level.

    Browse quickly, make wise decisions, bring cash, keep your eyes open for a bargain.
    That is my advice is you want to make the best of your time in the Stanley Market - a narrow street full of small shops selling all types of merchandise; primarily soft goods such as silk purses, robes, PJ's, etc. along with other Chinese items. Prices are very good as compared to other locations. Many vendors will bargain if you ask for their best price. If planning to purchase more than one of an item, get their best price than ask "how much for 2, 3?"

    One of the best features of Elements Mall in the West Kowloon area is the 3/F & 4/F Civic Square. This is an outdoor, rooftop area that is well manicured with trees, plants and blooms and includes a circular arrangement of bars and restaurants offering a very nice al-fresco dining space.

    You can access the Civic Square from the mall or Kowloon Station directly. There is a surprisingly large outdoor space to walk around and enjoy the garden like environs. Otherwise, make way for one of the restaurants and bars to enjoy an evening round of drinks or meal outdoors.

    See the Elements Mall website for a directory list of establishments operating at Civic Square.

    This is a nicely unordered street market area, with lots of cheap places to eat and even cheaper (fake / imitation) stuff to buy. Can be quite chaotic and probably not everything is legal but a very enjoyable experience, specifically at night.

    This is the quietest I have ever seen the Ladies Market. It’s a shame to see it so subdued although it makes it a much easier place to visit. In normal times, it is shoulder to shoulder and you need a lot of stamina to make it to through the jostling crowd. We went mid-week and we weren’t jostled or bumped once.
    Whilst there is not the full complement of stalls, there is still enough to make it worth a visit. You can still expect all the normal street market stock – souvenirs, handbags, wallets, backpacks, shoes, caps, toys, T-shirts, clothes, scarves and belts. The current novelty items that seem to be popular at the moment are karaoke machines and microphones. They were a bit of fun and we were tempted by shiatsu massage ball pillows (they were about a half to a third of the cost of very similar ones in mainstream shops).
    GETTING THERE - the MTR is by far the easiest way to get there. Exit via D3 at Mong Kok station. There are multiple exits so if you get confused, just re-check the signs on the station walls. The market is located on Tung Choi St. Once you have come up the D3 stairs to road level, turn 180 degrees, walk to the corner and turn right into Argyle St. The next corner on the right is the start of Ladies Market.

    Langham Place (LP) is the largest shopping mall in Mongkok. Located on Portland Street with direct access to the Mong Kong MTR Station, this is a 15 floor (+ 2 basement levels) mall with 17,000 sq metres of shopping space and over 200 shops and eateries.

    LP tends to be most popular with the younger crowd. The first thing that sticks out when visiting is the 83-metre escalator that takes you to the upper floors. There you discover a peculiar corkscrew shaped floor layout which winds up and down in a circular manner. Some find this confusing and obnoxious compared to traditional shopping mall floor layouts. Others find it quirky and fun, a bit like the retail shops you will find at Langham Place.

    Where many malls in Hong Kong focus on high-end and luxury brand name retailers, LP tends to stick to the Mongkok vibe and culture, fillings its floors with boutique and youthful shops. Some brand names you will recognise like Marks & Spencer, H&M and the cosmetic brands that line the Level 1 Beauty Avenue. However, there are just as many local and lesser known retailers lining the mall's upper floors.

    You'll find a similar range of food and drink venues that includes the likes of Starbucks and McDonalds, local favourites Honeymoon Dessert and Teawood, mixed with lesser known cafes, coffee shops and top floor bar. Langham Place is linked directly to a five star hotel called Cordis where you can find finer dining options and a good lobby bar. There is also a Jason's Marketplace and Cinema at the mall.

    Lastly, worth note that LP often puts on interesting holiday and seasonal festival installations in the main foyer, particularly around Chinese New Year. These are often creative and offer a bit of fun for families with children.

    1881 Heritage is a collection of historic sites centred around the Former Marine Police Headquarters Compound, a declared monument (1994) and one of the four oldest surviving government buildings in Hong Kong. It also includes the Old Kowloon Fire Station and the Time Bell Tower, both fellow declared monuments.

    The Former Marine Police HQ was built in 1884 and served as the site of the Marine Police for over 100 years. It includes main building that is three stories each fronted by delightful column-lined balconies. There is also a neat stable block to the west side of the main building. Several other historic features including old gas lamps, original solid-granite buttressing post, ship mast (replica) and displayed artillery batteries.

    You can enjoy a beautiful staircase series from the ground level up to the Former Marine Police HQ, an open area in front is often used to display large scale holiday and seasonal decorations. Over the past 10 years, 1881 has been one of the most popular locations around the city for Xmas displays. You will also find the shops at 1881 Heritage being used by high-end and luxury brand name retailers. Hotel 1881 and a host of nice restaurants are found in the main building.

    You can see quite a lot in a short time by walking along Hollywood Rd. It runs between Central and Sheung Wan and the highlights range from colonial history to antiques, street art and traditional temples.
    i) TAI KWUN CENTRE - This is a good starting point. A newly restored complex of colonial buildings, it includes free historical exhibitions inside the old magistracy and Victoria Gaol, the JC gallery, several shops, restaurants and bars. From here, if you head past the Mid-Levels escalator, it’s about a 10 min walk to the Man Mo Temple.
    ii) ANTIQUES - once famous as a centre of antiques, I’m not sure if Hollywood Rd can still make that claim. However there are still a large number of galleries and antique shops, selling anything from high-end antique furniture to Mao memorabilia.
    iii) STREET ART - I particularly like the colourful street art. Organisations like HKWalls have attracted international and local artists, who have used the city walls as an open-air canvas. Most instagrammable, is the popular Graham St mural on the side wall of the G.O.D. shop.
    iv) MAN MO TEMPLE - Built in 1842, this is one of HK’s oldest temples and is free to enter. If you’re only seeing one temple, then this is a good one to choose. It’s large and colourful, with a haze of smoky incense and giant spiralling incense coils hanging from the ceiling.
    v) CAT ST - A slight detour across the road, will take you away from Hollywood Rd down to Cat St market, an open-air antiques and bric-a-brac market lane. You’ll find trinkets and treasures ranging from Mao statues to movie posters, jade, old watches and mah jong sets. I like to look out for the blue and white ginger jars that you can often find here at reasonable prices.

    Hysan Place by Lee Gardens has been around nearly 10 years now. This is one of Hong Kong's 'vertical shopping malls' which are basically tall malls with numerous floors that are narrow with just a handful of shops on each level. The mall is a popular fixture on the shopping trail in Causeway Bay and remains a very busy place particularly on weekends.

    Here you will find a large T Gallery by DFS (B-GF), Apple outlet (GF) and the flagship eslite bookstore (8-10F) as well as a range of local, mid-range and with a few higher end brand named retailers. Similarly, Food, drink and dining options are almost exclusively local and casual, no fine dining or Michelin dining here at Hysan. It is an accessible range of shops offered at Hysan while they keep the higher end names at their Lee Gardens buildings 1-6 just up the road.

    Note: There is an outdoor Sky Garden on the 4th floor. This is a nice place to take a coffee or yoghurt dessert from Smile (5F) and get away from the crowded floors if visiting on a weekend of public holiday.

    Note: Hysan Place is accessible from Causeway Bay MTR Station exits F1 and F2 and is right across the street from the exit D2 in front of the SOGO Department Store.
