Case Family in Hong Kong

Visit to Stanley Market

Posted in Tantalizing Travel by jpcase01 on December 10, 2007

On December 6th, Mel, Ezri, Wayne & Karen made it to the south side of Hong Kong Island to visit the infamous Stanley Market.  The trip was shorter than expected.  It was about 1 hour from where we live (we thought it might be up to an hour & 1/2), they took the MTR downtown and then took a Double Decker bus to the opposite side of Hong Kong Island.  They passed Ocean Park, one of the top tourist attractions for families (oceanarium, theme park & pandas), and Repulse Bay on the way out there (one of the best beaches in HK).  Wayne proclaims, “This is a flea market lover’s paradise!!!”  They enjoyed their time in the open market, bartering and trying to make some deals.  They note that it is MUCH more laid back than the city.  The treated themselves to some gourmet hot dogs (they love them here), a Chicago-style hot dog stand would do gang busters.  Mel purchased some very reasonably priced paintings to decorate our walls, then they headed back home to rest up for their next adventure!
