Stanley

One of southern Hong Kong Island’s most popular seaside areas – Stanley offers much more than waterfront restaurants than its world-famous market would otherwise suggest. One of Hong Kong Island’s oldest village settlements, extensive connections remain to its fishing and sea-faring past, as well as various religious groups that made their homes here, and enduring physical links to the Pacific War era.

We will walk first to Stanley Military Cemetery, where we will discuss the significance of this historically-important graveyard, learn something of the wartime Stanley Internment Camp, which included nearby St. Stephen’s College, and the European and Indian Married Quarters at Stanley Prison as well as the cemetery.

After exploring the cemetery we will walk back up to Stanley village. There we will note the old Stanley Police Station, then the group will proceed to the Tin Hau Temple.

Finally we will see the exterior of the reconstructed Officer’s Mess, which stood in Central until the early 1980s.

Please note: All walks require appropriate footwear for walking. Please remember to carry water. We also suggest insect repellent, sunscreen, hat and an umbrella.

Please also note: This walk is not suitable for children under 15 years old or for dogs and that we only take Hong Kong residents.

Price:
HK$550 per person for a scheduled walk.
