Hongkong Attractions (Top 8)
 

Stanley
Visitors who take no other excursion in Hong Kong often make the effort to see Stanley, a coastal village on the southern side of Hong Kong Island. Most are drawn as much by the scenery en route and the reputation of its famous market as by any preponderance of attractions to visit or activities to do once they get there.

One of the island's oldest communities, Chek Chue (Robber's Lair), as it was then known, already had a population of around 2,000 when the British arrived in 1841 . Later it became an important British military garrison, becoming involved in bitter fighting during the Japanese invasion in 1941 . The poignant and beautifully kept Military Cemetery, a short walk north of the village, is well worth a visit.

Most people come here for the market, however, located just up the road from the harbour. Over the years it's become known for its bargain clothes, though these days prices are not as keen as they were. It's still fun to browse, however, and the stalls are as good a place as anywhere in Hong Kong to buy souvenir T-shirts or inexpensive Chinese artefacts and household goods. After seeing the market wander down to Stanley's waterfront Main Street, lined with bars, pubs and restaurants popular with ex-pats. At its western end stands the Tin Hau Temple (1767), one of the oldest in Hong Kong. Around a kilometre to the south lies St Stephen's Beach, which is nicer than the more convenient Stanley Main Beach.
