    For those looking to do a bit of hiking around Stanley there are a couple of trails nearby including a short route up to see the weathered land formations known locally as Rhino Rock on the Stanley Peninsula south of the village as well as Devil's Paw and the Snoopy Rock in the area known as Chung Hom Kok just to the west of Stanley.

    We recently hiked up to see Devil's Paw and Snoopy Rock combined with brief visits to the old battery and public park at the southern tip of Chung Hom Kok along with the local beach just to the north. To reach these two land formations from Stanley, one only needs to walk the trail through Ma Hang Park starting behind the Murray House. Make your way west to the end of the park. You will find yourself at a roadside roundabout. From here, follow Chung Hom Kok Road west to Cheshire House. Walk until you start to see the large boulders on the left (south) side of the road.

    You will notice a dirt trailhead through rather dense forest. There are red ribbons tied to branches to help you stay on course, which is actually a bit challenging. You'll need to scale and scramble a bit and duck under some lower branches for a short 3-4 minute hike where you reach an opening. From here you can see the Devil's Paw for the first time. From here, you can wind your way along the trail until you find yourself just in front of very interesting and large rock formation. From up close the weather erosion patterns are quite neat to see. Views from here of the coastline and sea are pretty good while sky conditions are favourable.

    From Devil's Paw you can continue to ascend trails further south for another 8-10 minutes until you will reach an exposed outcrop of boulders. This is where you find the Snoopy Rock. It is not clear and obvious but from certain angles, one of the boulders sort of looks like Snoopy. The massive and interesting boulders are really nice and panoramic views here are really nice as well.

    The trail continues further south for a while past a couple more boulder batches before descending downward to Chung Hom Kok Road. From here, if you still have time and energy, you continue south along the main road to see the old coastal defence battery at the southern tip of the peninsula. Or you can begin to make your way back towards Stanley Village. Note, there is a pretty good public beach at Chung Hom Kok that you can make way to as well if you fancy a swim in the sea after your hike as well.

    Being here made me sad as there were no tourists and it was very quiet. Things were cheap and plentiful but there was no one buying anything. I did get some cute knick knacks to bring home (a mahjong Rubik's cube was one of them). The beachside cafes were pulling people to go in as you walked by. It was hot, so I did go to the gelato/ice cream shop by the Murray House. A little over priced so understandably they had no business ($70 for one scoop).

    Transportation here was easy - many buses or minibuses

    Had to pay a visit here during my recent trip to Hong Kong, of course. We didn't attend until later on in the evening, when the vendors were starting to pack things away unfortunately, so make sure to arrive well before 21:00 if possible. There was still plenty of market stall open & selling a variety of "knock-off" designer labels, as well as knick-knacks, souvenirs, etc, so plenty of choice! Be prepared to do some serious haggling though and even walk away from a sale if unreasonable. Would recommend to go to soak up the atmosphere and if you're looking for some cheap gifts.

    It’s still worth a visit but covid has taken its toll. I am sure it will recover slowly as visitors return. It is a great place to absorb the night vibe in safety. I travelled solo this time and didn’t hesitate to come here at night and enjoyed eating and wandering.

    This is a feature street market in Mongkok located just north of Prince Edward West Road, around a 5 minute walk from both Prince Edward and the Mongkok East MTR Stations. The Mongkok Flower Market has dozens of shops and is worth seeing anytime of of the year. However, it is particularly interesting now during the Chinese New Year season.

    At this time of year, the flower market is thriving with shops and added stalls filled with seasonal flowers, plants and decorations. You'll be able to see daffodils, orchids, chrysanthemums and holiday specials including Narcissus, peonies, kumquat (mandarin orange) plants, bamboo shoots, colourful willow stems and cherry blossom stems amongst others.

    Do expect crowds when you plan to visit the Flower Market but especially during the Chinese New Year - to a point of being uncomfortable in the evenings and weekends. As such, consider midday weekday visits during CNY when things are more manageable and its easier to take pictures.

    After such a long hiatus, I was finally able to go visit Hong Kong and the Yau Matei Jade Market. I was shocked to discover the old site was now a constructions ie. Thankfully, I went a bit further and saw that the jade market was still in operation but in the building with a proper signage over the entrance. I went in and it was full of stalls but so many were wrapped up in tarp as the stall keepers had yet to arrive to start the business day. I had to walk around a few times before finding my regular sellers. Was so glad yo see them but the other stall keepers were very aggressively trying to interest me in their wares. Overall it was a fruitful and enjoyable time spent there.

    You can see quite a lot in a short time by walking along Hollywood Rd. It runs between Central and Sheung Wan and the highlights range from colonial history to antiques, street art and traditional temples.
    i) TAI KWUN CENTRE - This is a good starting point. A newly restored complex of colonial buildings, it includes free historical exhibitions inside the old magistracy and Victoria Gaol, the JC gallery, several shops, restaurants and bars. From here, if you head past the Mid-Levels escalator, it’s about a 10 min walk to the Man Mo Temple.
    ii) ANTIQUES - once famous as a centre of antiques, I’m not sure if Hollywood Rd can still make that claim. However there are still a large number of galleries and antique shops, selling anything from high-end antique furniture to Mao memorabilia.
    iii) STREET ART - I particularly like the colourful street art. Organisations like HKWalls have attracted international and local artists, who have used the city walls as an open-air canvas. Most instagrammable, is the popular Graham St mural on the side wall of the G.O.D. shop.
    iv) MAN MO TEMPLE - Built in 1842, this is one of HK’s oldest temples and is free to enter. If you’re only seeing one temple, then this is a good one to choose. It’s large and colourful, with a haze of smoky incense and giant spiralling incense coils hanging from the ceiling.
    v) CAT ST - A slight detour across the road, will take you away from Hollywood Rd down to Cat St market, an open-air antiques and bric-a-brac market lane. You’ll find trinkets and treasures ranging from Mao statues to movie posters, jade, old watches and mah jong sets. I like to look out for the blue and white ginger jars that you can often find here at reasonable prices.

    The street market here is one place that I would try to go whenever I visited Hong Kong. It usually see a good crowd on weekend afternoons. You will see many stalls selling clothes, fruits, gadgets, bags, etc. Definitely worth a visit.

    So many wonderful varieties of tropical and cold water fish. Very crowded though and too expensive to send back to NZ. Certainly an awesome experience

    …especially if you don’t venture off HK Island very often. In that the title of this ‘attraction’ is Tai Po Street, I suppose it goes for anything found in and around this area, which is great because it’s worth exploring to find lots of sights and products that you may not find elsewhere. Very local, very Chinese to Western sensibilities, but still very much a part of HK life.

    Dirt cheap prices on almost all electronics. Refurbished phones are quite popular here. Be wary of some counterfeit stuff though.

    This is an interesting place to visit with many colorful birds on display in cages. There are also cute rattan bird cages for sale. It is also conveniently located at the end of Flower Market Road so you can visit both the flower market and the bird market at the same time.

    I was staying at Harbour Plaza Northpoint so wandered down here. It’s an interesting local market selling lots of fruit and veg and meat. There are also a number of stalls selling clothing and jewellery. The tram runs down the street. A great place to explore if you are staying near by
