Stanley – one of southern Hong Kong Island’s most popular seaside areas - offer’s much more than waterfront restaurants and its world-famous market. It is one of Hong Kong Island’s oldest village settlements, as well as various religious groups have made their homes here.

Jason Wordie, Hong Kong historian will walk with our group to Stanley Military Cemetery, and 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 to Stanley village. We will see the old Stanley Police Station, proceed via Stanley Market Street and Stanley Main Street to the Tin Hau Temple, and then around the headland to the small but interesting Pak Tai Temple.

Along the way to the Pak Tai Temple we will see some wartime pillboxes located along the cliffside, and finally we will see the exterior of the recently-reconstructed Officer’s Mess, which stood in Central until the early 1980s.

Following the walk we will enjoy a meal at a local restaurant.  Price includes lunch & a drink.
