Stanley Market

Stanley is located on a peninsula in the Southern part of the Hong Kong Island, the name was given after Lord Stanley, British Colonial Secretary at the time when Hong Kong was under British colonial rule. It was once a temporary administrative centre before moving to Central. 

It was also where British and Canadian troops mounted a last stand at Stanley Fort during World War II before surrendered to Japanese forces in December 1941.  The fort is currently occupied by the People's Liberation Army following the transfer of sovereignty to China. 

Try spending the entire day here since Stanley Village is worth a wander. The market is a small labyrinth of alleyways and streets where you can find a full range of gifts to take home, including Chinese art, antiques, porcelain, sportswear and export clothing at incredible bargain prices.  It is a great place to take a relax stroll and soak up the sun on the Main Street Waterfront or Stanley Beach, and have a wonderful meal at the cuisines of Murray House.
