A picturesque coastal town
Stanley is a wonderful place to spend many relaxing hours. A renowned area for hiking, our Hong Kong bus tour whisks you away from the bustle of Central to the tranquillity of Stanley – a picture-perfect colonial seaside town perched on the southern edge of the island.
Long before the British came to Hong Kong, Stanley was a simple fishing village. Gradually a popular fish market grew. And as Hong Kong boomed, this evolved into the mouth-watering and fascinating market that you’ll find here today.
Hop off and shop at Stanley Market
The Stanley Market is a magical maze of alleys that wind down to Stanley Bay. Far better than your typical tourist market, you’ll find an eclectic mix of haute couture fashion and regional clothing, along with accessories, souvenirs, ornaments and other unique knick-knacks.
Love to explore? Stanley Bay itself is full of interesting distractions. Take a stroll along the promenade, relax on the pristine beaches, soak up the atmosphere of the temples, or just find a quiet spot for a delicious lunch.

Stanley Plaza is not just your average mall, it's where locals and tourists go for a leisurely, alfresco dining and shopping experience with beautiful views of Stanley Bay.

And when it's time to refuel, culinary highlights include gourmet Western and Chinese cuisine, seaside restaurants, and authentic local snacks like egg tarts, Hong Kong-style milk tea and much more. It's the ideal starting point for your exploration of Hong Kong’s fascinating culture and heritage.
