Free Activities in Hong Kong : Stanley Market

Guest Author - Taisha Turner

Hong Kong has many free activities for the savvy traveler. Visits to the various markets which dot the area are some of the free activities. Stanley Market on Hong Kong Island is a popular market.

Stanley Market sells a variety of wares. The Chinese artwork, curios and silk work make interesting souvenirs. Walk and view the variety offered by the stall owners.

The quality of Stanley Marketís goods do vary. However, there are some gems to be found. Take your time and study the items for sale. Or, just enjoy the day by strolling and watching the people.

Leave Stanley Market with your souvenirs and head for nearby Stanley Plaza. Here you will find the rebuilt Murray House. The colonial Murray House is now the home of the Hong Kong Maritime Museum.

Stop in Stanley Plaza before proceeding to the Seafront Promenade. On the weekends, the entire area is closed to motorists. Natives and visitors stroll, enjoying views of the sea.

Are you hungry? It is here, in Stanley Plaza area that you will find eating establishments for all budgets. Sit at a table, continue to watch the people as you eat your meal.

Stanley Market is open seven days a week. It is less crowded during the week but the weekend crowds are so fascinating. Take the time for this free Hong Kong activity. Stanley Market is serviced by both the Mass Transit Railway (MTR) and public bus. The Octopus Card is valid for use on both forms of public transportation.

The bus ride from Central Hong Kong is about an hour, but the ride is pleasant. Sit on the top deck, so as to see the passing buildings and scenery. Read Octopus Travel Card to learn more about it and Hong Kong's public transportation.
