Stanley is situated on the southern coast of Hong Kong Island. The famous Stanley market ??very popular with tourists and locals alike, and an excellent selection of restaurants all make Stanley a very popular destination. A highly sought-after area for families looking for large apartments and town houses, with some smaller apartments above the busy market. It is predominately a low rise area, with only a few buildings near the market area being more than 3 storeys high and many are walk-up buildings. The area is well served by public transport routes including Citybus services 6, 6A, 6X and 260 from Exchange Square Bus Terminus (MTR Central Station Exit B) to the Stanley Village Bus Terminus for Stanley Market. Since July 2007 Blake Pier was recommissioned to Stanley and erected next to Murray House. It is a public pier and has one kai-to route travelling between Aberdeen and Po Toi Island via the pier operated by Tsui Wah Ferry.
