Things to Buy in Stanley Market

Murray House too.
There are all kinds of shops though they are
extremely touristy and are mostly souvenir.

- small wooden frame with Chinese
character or Chinese ornament inside
- Your English name in

local but not the shopkeeper to help you to distinguish the
good and poor.
