A popular market town on the sunny south side of Hong Kong Island, Stanley's relaxed ambience, crisp sea environs and bargain buys have made it world famous.
Stanley is a great place to get a drink or a bite to eat. It features a wide variety of funky bars and great restaurants to enjoy.
Seven days a week the open market around Stanley New Street and Stanley Market Road throbs with the passing parade of life as bargain-hunters from all over the world join in the fun of haggling with shopkeepers and stallholders after swooping in on brand-name clothing and accessories, or other irresistible souvenirs, ornaments and knick-knacks. The market is open from 9am to 6pm.
Stanley also has great beaches and is very popular with windsurfers. Murray House, situated at the Stanley seaside, is a restored three-storey colonial building that was dismantled in 1982 from its original site in Central and then rebuilt in Stanley. It re-opened in 1999 and now houses a number of restaurants.
