    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.

    Sbakery by Mama Soo is a local bakery that has a pop up near the L3 southern entrance to the Ocean Terminal section of the Harbour City Shopping Mall. They are open from 1.30pm to 8.30pm daily or until they sell out of their thick, creamy and delicious NYC style cheesecake slices. We have tried their slices from this pop-up as well as the new flagship shop recently opened in Tai Ping Shan in Sheung Wan recently. They have been just great on both occasions.

    The slices are a bit pricey (HK$88) each but they are huge portions, thick and heavy, think Junior's in NYC when it comes to volume and texture with beautifully thick and sweet graham cracker crust. The original cheesecake is a nice balance of sweetness and sour. Even better in my opinion is the Banoffee Slice, which is a layered cheesecake with bananas. Oh my, this is good but do be ready to share as the slices are too large for one person to finish in a single sitting.

    Note: This pop up at Harbour City is right at the entrance/exit above the escalators. Look for the Dan Ryan restaurant if helpful. It is across the foyer next to exiting doors. Otherwise see pictures submitted to assist in finding the Sbakery pop up.

    This is quite a nice mall with office block and is connected to the MTR. The usual brands can be found here and there are many eateries and cafes. Good place to hang around for a couple of hours, especially if you are working nearby.

    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.

    I counted and realised that I have not visited this mall for exactly a decade. This mall has all the big brand names and there are various eateries as well. It is connected to the neighbouring hotel and is near the MTR. I actually like it because it is usually not very crowded.

    Browse quickly, make wise decisions, bring cash, keep your eyes open for a bargain.
    That is my advice is you want to make the best of your time in the Stanley Market - a narrow street full of small shops selling all types of merchandise; primarily soft goods such as silk purses, robes, PJ's, etc. along with other Chinese items. Prices are very good as compared to other locations. Many vendors will bargain if you ask for their best price. If planning to purchase more than one of an item, get their best price than ask "how much for 2, 3?"

    One of the best features of Elements Mall in the West Kowloon area is the 3/F & 4/F Civic Square. This is an outdoor, rooftop area that is well manicured with trees, plants and blooms and includes a circular arrangement of bars and restaurants offering a very nice al-fresco dining space.

    You can access the Civic Square from the mall or Kowloon Station directly. There is a surprisingly large outdoor space to walk around and enjoy the garden like environs. Otherwise, make way for one of the restaurants and bars to enjoy an evening round of drinks or meal outdoors.

    See the Elements Mall website for a directory list of establishments operating at Civic Square.

    This is a nicely unordered street market area, with lots of cheap places to eat and even cheaper (fake / imitation) stuff to buy. Can be quite chaotic and probably not everything is legal but a very enjoyable experience, specifically at night.

    Perhaps no street market in Hong Kong has been hit as hard as the Ladies Market in Mongkok by the lack of tourists in recent years. At its peak, the street was buzzing with activity from mid-afternoon until dark with tourists browsing through endless stalls selling all manner of trinkets, travel and souvenir items. This was one of Kowloon's busiest market scenes for many years but that all changed with the pandemic.

    For the past couple years, the Ladies Market, similar to the Stanley Market has seemed dead much of the time. The stalls setup much later now than in the past and for good reason - there are no tourists to buy their items anymore. What I've also noticed is that many have changed what they are selling, switching over to household products, clothing and accessories, more luggage and items that local residents might be interested in purchasing. This has probably saved some of the stalls from going under but simply doesn't bring in the crowds like what were seen during pre pandemic times. In many ways, the Ladies Market right now is just surplus to the normal Fa Yuen Street Market a couple blocks over.

    The question remains what will become of the Ladies Market going forward. Has it changed forever given that so many of the stalls are selling different items now in order to survive? Or will it return to being a much more tourist focused street market centred on more souvenir type products like what we saw in the past? Only time will tell.

    Langham Place (LP) is the largest shopping mall in Mongkok. Located on Portland Street with direct access to the Mong Kong MTR Station, this is a 15 floor (+ 2 basement levels) mall with 17,000 sq metres of shopping space and over 200 shops and eateries.

    LP tends to be most popular with the younger crowd. The first thing that sticks out when visiting is the 83-metre escalator that takes you to the upper floors. There you discover a peculiar corkscrew shaped floor layout which winds up and down in a circular manner. Some find this confusing and obnoxious compared to traditional shopping mall floor layouts. Others find it quirky and fun, a bit like the retail shops you will find at Langham Place.

    Where many malls in Hong Kong focus on high-end and luxury brand name retailers, LP tends to stick to the Mongkok vibe and culture, fillings its floors with boutique and youthful shops. Some brand names you will recognise like Marks & Spencer, H&M and the cosmetic brands that line the Level 1 Beauty Avenue. However, there are just as many local and lesser known retailers lining the mall's upper floors.

    You'll find a similar range of food and drink venues that includes the likes of Starbucks and McDonalds, local favourites Honeymoon Dessert and Teawood, mixed with lesser known cafes, coffee shops and top floor bar. Langham Place is linked directly to a five star hotel called Cordis where you can find finer dining options and a good lobby bar. There is also a Jason's Marketplace and Cinema at the mall.

    Lastly, worth note that LP often puts on interesting holiday and seasonal festival installations in the main foyer, particularly around Chinese New Year. These are often creative and offer a bit of fun for families with children.

    1881 Heritage is a collection of historic sites centred around the Former Marine Police Headquarters Compound, a declared monument (1994) and one of the four oldest surviving government buildings in Hong Kong. It also includes the Old Kowloon Fire Station and the Time Bell Tower, both fellow declared monuments.

    The Former Marine Police HQ was built in 1884 and served as the site of the Marine Police for over 100 years. It includes main building that is three stories each fronted by delightful column-lined balconies. There is also a neat stable block to the west side of the main building. Several other historic features including old gas lamps, original solid-granite buttressing post, ship mast (replica) and displayed artillery batteries.

    You can enjoy a beautiful staircase series from the ground level up to the Former Marine Police HQ, an open area in front is often used to display large scale holiday and seasonal decorations. Over the past 10 years, 1881 has been one of the most popular locations around the city for Xmas displays. You will also find the shops at 1881 Heritage being used by high-end and luxury brand name retailers. Hotel 1881 and a host of nice restaurants are found in the main building.

    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.

    This Mall is for shopping purposes. If you are looking for bargains and cheap items then you are in the wrong place. This mall is entirely for luxury.

    Hysan Place by Lee Gardens has been around nearly 10 years now. This is one of Hong Kong's 'vertical shopping malls' which are basically tall malls with numerous floors that are narrow with just a handful of shops on each level. The mall is a popular fixture on the shopping trail in Causeway Bay and remains a very busy place particularly on weekends.

    Here you will find a large T Gallery by DFS (B-GF), Apple outlet (GF) and the flagship eslite bookstore (8-10F) as well as a range of local, mid-range and with a few higher end brand named retailers. Similarly, Food, drink and dining options are almost exclusively local and casual, no fine dining or Michelin dining here at Hysan. It is an accessible range of shops offered at Hysan while they keep the higher end names at their Lee Gardens buildings 1-6 just up the road.

    Note: There is an outdoor Sky Garden on the 4th floor. This is a nice place to take a coffee or yoghurt dessert from Smile (5F) and get away from the crowded floors if visiting on a weekend of public holiday.

    Note: Hysan Place is accessible from Causeway Bay MTR Station exits F1 and F2 and is right across the street from the exit D2 in front of the SOGO Department Store.
