We passed one man making chops. He could make chops with your name or with your Chinese zodiac sign. It seemed like a good gift for that person who has everything. I found the best deals in a silk shop. Alli picked up a green Cheongsam, because she can fit into anything. I purchased three silk robes for $10 each. Other items of note were jade and bone carvings, Chinese porcelain, and souvenirs. In one large souvenir shop, we found very inexpensive silk sheets. Unfortunately, they do not exactly fit a standard size queen.

Once you've had enough of shopping there is the nearby Tin Hau Temple where locals were praying and lighting incense.
There are also several pubs on the beach front, pleasant places to have a drink away from the noise of the city before catching the bus back. There are several buses back so be sure your's goes to where you want to be. Occasionally the drivers will refuse to speak English, fortunately I was rescued by a local lady who translated for me and the driver finally notified me in English of my stop! For time away from the pollution and noise of the city this is a great place to go.

The streets of Stanley Market contain many stalls selling various wares and this market is a bargain shoppers paradise. Some items are unique and some are just sold at lower prices than found outside the city. My friend snatched up a few Pashmina scarves knowing they were being sold at a fraction of the price found in U.S. department stores. Clothing made of assorted silks, wools and cottons are sold in abundance. Another hot item are purses and at one stall, I secured 2 of them along with a set of coasters for $30. Interesting toys and musical instruments are for sale.
There is also opportunity to quench your hunger and thirst and an iced cappuccino gave me the energy to continue my bargaining in the Stanley Market for several hours.

They don't bargain a lot here but it's really a lot of fun. Take the bus up. Sometimes I have so much, I don't want to take the bus back so I take a taxi.
