Getting to Stanley Market
If you are in a hurry but not on a budget
then a taxi from anywhere in Hong Kong is the easiest way.
Every taxi driver knows the way, and the name "Stanley" in
English, so there is no problem there.
The ride is a very winding road though so
those who get car sick in the back of cars need to beware -- if
you find buses better then
6, 6A, 6X
, 66 or 260 from Exchange Square
bus terminus in Central will take you there.
They are air-conditioned and comfortable as buses go.
An alternative way would be to take the
MTR to Chai Wan station, leave the
station via Exit C and catch green minibus 16M
which will also take you to the Stanley market.
If you are starting in Causeway Bay then
there is a more direct route via
AMS Green Minibus #40.
Green mini buses are not as comfortable as
a regular bus or a taxi.

there which are particularly HK or Asian in flavour. Leaving TST
to spend the day in Stanley would be a great choice, and you
Ventured futhur north in search of real Hong Kong local flavour?

Probably the only other south-side area from which you would try
to reach Stanley market, the Repulse Bay is a real beach that
people go to for swimming. But if you want to swim then try
Stanley Main Beach instead which is smaller but just as good for
swimming, and is walking distance from shops, restaurants and the

Nightclubs, bars and restaurants are what the world knows
Wanchai for, but for HK residents they are just as likely to go
there to buy some taps for the bathroom or blinds for their
windows. An eclectic mix of builders, interior designers,
nightclubs, small publishing houses mix with offices and
restaurants of all descriptions. Take a trip from Wanchai to
Stanley by following one of
these three suggestions.
