Stanley Market is a popular market town on the sunny south side of Hong Kong Island. Tourists can find a wide variety of relatively inexpensive goods such as Chinese souvenirs, rattan products, accessories and handicrafts there. The neighborhood also boasts a relaxing beach, a plethora of waterfront restaurants and bars and the 18th-century Tin Hau Temple.
It is one place that i just love to go whenever i go to hongkong.
I buy my kids clothes from stanley because i get the kids designer clothes at a reasonable price. They sell baby Guess? and Gap and ask kosh for a fraction the price. There are generally surpluses or rejects. Kida outgrow their clothes so fast and it really doesn't matter if they are wearing something from the previous season.
Now, that being said, it's a fun place to go to just to walk around. You'll find a few bargains, but it's unlikely you'll know which ones they are. Check out things that are interesting to you, note the price and keep shopping in the back streets of Sheung Wang or Wanchai for better bargains. Once you're tired of walking among tourists,
just enjoy an exquisite European-like lunch at Lucy's (if you can find it--it's tucked above the delifrance chain, and you need to go up the stairs).
When visiting Stanley its best to take the Cityflyer bus from Central ferry.
Its has a flsea market that more or less has the bargains of Mongkok. Compare the prices as some shops are even more expensive than downtown.
Restaurants along the beach head are great but expensive
There are some truly spectacular views to be had from the bus to Stanley.
Once there just soak up the great atmosphere. It's nice to just wander through the alley ways or along the beach front with it's spectacular views across the bay.
While the markets may not be the best (or cheapest) in Hong Kong,I've certainly found some good quality copy watches, clothing and shoes over the years.
Don't forget to visit the Pacific Cafe opposite the main bus terminus. The staff are very friendly and the atmosphere is great. There is also free internet access.
Although I was born and raised in Hong Kong, since I have been in the State for half of my life, it was such awesome to find a place that I could shop for many different Chinese goods and gifts. Not to mention the great bargain I could get over there. I got so many cool stuff there and the money I spent there was so dirt cheap. The only problem I could imagine for some western tourist was the crowded market. They might find it hard to walk around without bumping into others. Well, to me, it is so much like home. I love it!
