The market is located in the city of Stanley, and is mostly geared towards western tourists. Here you can buy souvenirs and Asian items, and fill the need for shopping. At the market stalls you will find very varied merchandise, including clothes, jewelry, dresses, bags, sporting clothes, drawings, art pieces and more.
Many see Stanley Market as the best market on the island, though we are not sure why. The prices are not the cheapest on the island, and neither does it have the most variety of merchandise. Maybe it's the better level of goods, or the order of the market, or maybe the charming way it leads from the city center.
Either way, the town of Stanley is on the southern tip of Hong Kong Island. Once it was the village of Stanley, which is considered the largest fishing village in Hong Kong. Today it is known mainly by this popular market. After you have finished and if you have not stayed there for a long time, you can stroll along Stanley's scenic promenade, with beautiful sea views along the south coast. Here you can enjoy the lovely cafes, bars and restaurants on the promenade.
Further along the promenade, you can see the Blake pier, whose roof is more than 100 years old and has already passed through some of the beaches of Hong Kong until it was posted here. It was named after Sir Henry Arthur Blake, the 12th British governor of Hong Kong.
After wandering around the market, at the exit from the market turn to Stanley Road where there are many different restaurants and food stalls that are worth trying. There is also a viewpoint over the whole area, with a wooden promenade and cafes and different foods.
