Stanley Hong Kong

  Stanley Stanley

Stanley, a coastal village on the southern side of Hong Kong Island, is a must-go place for most visitors to Hong Kong. Stanley used to be a small fishing village but in recent years, a series of restaurants and pubs have been established there. Now this village is bustling with throngs of people.

Stanley Market, located just up the road from the harbor, is the highlight of Stanley. Over the years it has become known for its bargains, which includes silk garments, sportswear, art, Chinese costumes, souvenir, ornaments and a host of fantastic crafts. It is one of the famous open-air markets in Hong Kong. Strolling in this street and bargaining with the shrewd venders is something most travelers find amusing to try.

Even if you are not interested in the bargains, the market, with its beautiful scenery nearby, is worth visiting.

At the western end of the market street is the Tin Hau Temple (temple of the Queen of Heaven), one of the oldest in Hong Kong. It was built in 1767, and during the First World War, villagers took asylum from war in this temple. Since then each year, on the 23rd of March, according to the lunar calendar, on the birthday of Tin Hau, people pour in to worship in this temple.

You can also visit Murray House, the oldest example of Western architecture, Old Stanley Police Station, one of the oldest surviving police stations in Hong Kong, old Stanley Fort and a cluster of historic military sites found here.
