We took the 260 Express bus from the Central Bus Terminus to get there – it cost us 10,60 HKD and about 25 minutes ride on the bus. This is the quickest option to get there, as the bus takes the short cut through the tunnel (next to Happy Valley) rather than going through Aberdeen.
When we arrived in Stanley it was early afternoon – and it was packed. The streets were filled with tourists and locals, either sitting in one of the cafes and restaurants at the water side or strolling through the market.
The market does not sell food but it sells souvenirs, pictures, clothing for Westerners – and it seems a busy place, with lots of people shopping and buying goods.
We walked past the market to the Blake Pier and the Murray House – and back again. On the way back we climbed up the steps, visited a small temple and then walked past some houses, where ceramics were being sold.
