Located at the southern tip of Hong Kong Island, Stanley is a prominent tourist attraction. Known for its low-rise colonial dwellings and historic Murray House, Stanley also houses an animated market along Stanley New Street. This market is a favorite with tourists and the city's expats for apparel, art and handcrafted jewelry. Local favorite Stanley getaways are St. Stephen's Beach and Stanley Beach, the site of Hong Kong's famed dragon boat races each June.
