If you feel like escaping the big city in Hong Kong, the small, peaceful and tranquil village called Stanley is the place to go! You can go here either by bus or cab (the taxi cost around 100 HK dollars from Central). Stanley is named after Lord Stanley ( a secretary during the period when Hong Kong still was a british colony) and is located in the southern parts of Hong Kong. It takes about 30 minutes with cab from Central to Stanley. Whilst visiting this little cute village I recommend taking a look at the cosy market as well as walking along Stanley Main Street on the beachfront. On the market you can find beautiful paintings, silk products, pearls, clothes, scarves and “sunbrellas”. Stanley also offers a lot of different restaurants and cafes, all located against the water to offer the perfect view of the sea.
