Owner description: Stanley is very different to other parts of Hong Kong, or completely different from what you think about Hong Kong. Stanley, located at the southern of Hong Kong island, is much more relaxed with beaches, hills and coves. You will find the western atmosphere in this small Chinese town.

“My favorite place in HK”
Reviewed 5 March 2012

Stanley seems so quiet and nice. It's a very relaxed place with some cheap bargains at the market site. After doing some shopping, you can move on to the seafront's pubs for drinks… . Just the bus journey over the mountain is worth the trip.

“Market town”
Reviewed 4 March 2012

We went for the markets which are good. Negotiate prices on everything.
The first price is at least 50% too high!
Taxi is easiest at HK$100 or AUD$12. Takes 15 mins.
Nice location on back of island.

“Do go there!”
Reviewed 3 March 2012

This is a good place to shop but a word to the wise do go up the side streets where the prices are reasonable. On the main street the prices can be foolish especially when a party from a cruise ship is in! We did not buy until they had disappeared when the prices had amazingly reduced. You can get here by taxi but the cheapest and best option is to take a bus from Central or Kowloon but do remember the buses do not give change so buy an octopus card or have lots of change.

“A bit of British Seaside-it seems fake.”
Reviewed 2 March 2012

I can understand why people living in HK like it here. It's like stepping out of China other than Stanley market itself. But as a tourist, I want to see HK not some sanitised seaside holiday place. Interesting bus ride though!
