Stanley

Stanley is a small town, part of Southern district on the Southern part of Hong Kong Island. It is very nice town with a tranquil fishing village atmosphere. Stanley has a nice market, some historic buildings (like the Tin Hau Temple and Murray House), a prison, a war cemetery and two nice beaches, Stanley Beach and St Stephen's Beach. Stanley Market is a very popular market, and along the short Stanley Main Street you will find open-air restaurants. Stanley is partly fashionable, but is much more gritty then the neighbouring Repulse Bay for example. There is not much traffic, so it is hard to believe that Stanley once was the biggest town and capital in Brittish HK, before Victoria City (now Central) was built.
