Stanley Market Tours

Stanley, a former fishing village on the quiet south side of Hong Kong Bay, has become one of the area’s top destinations for shopping. Its famous open-air market, a maze of streets running down toward the water, is crammed with cut-price clothing, souvenirs, silks, crafts, art, Chinese costume jewelry, and bric-a-brac.

The Basics
While Stanley Market’s popularity means prices aren’t as cheap as they once were, it still deserves a spot on a Hong Kong itinerary both for the shopping and the surrounding neighborhood. Both private and group tours offer half- and full-day outings here; head to the market with the intent to bargain, and then relax afterwards with a tasty lunch at one of the many restaurants in the area.

Things to Know Before You Go
  • The market is a must-see for shoppers.
  • Stanley Market is an excellent introduction to Hong Kong markets before tackling the Ladies Market or Temple Street night market.
  • Haggling is accepted but not expected, and prices are generally fair.
  • Many of the vendors speak English.

How to Get There
Stanley is on the south coast of Hong Kong Island. Double-decker buses leave from the Exchange Square bus terminal in Central on the island. It’s a scenic 40-minute trip, so grab a seat upstairs at the front for the best views.

When to Get There
The best time to visit the market is on a weekday morning, before the sun starts to blaze and the crowds arrive. Expect weekends to be extremely busy with both locals and tourists perusing the wares. 

Things to Do in Stanley
While Stanley Market has long been the main draw to the village, there’s plenty more to do while you’re in the area. Catch some sun on Stanley Beach, tour the Murray House (a British military building dating back to 1844), see Stanley Plaza and Tin Hua Temple, visit the Hong Kong Maritime Museum, or grab a bite to eat along the waterfront promenade.
