To get to Stanley, you'll have to head to the road behind Wan Chai Market and board 6 or 6X. These 2 buses will bring you directly from Wan Chai to Stanley! A point to note, those who experience motion sickness should most probably board bus 6X because bus 6 will bring you up the mountain and down again which will definitely turn your stomach. On the way to Stanley, I went past Repulse Bay which boast of 2 beautiful white sandy beaches. I had the impulse to rush to the beach for a tan but I wasn't dresses for it and so I had to give it a miss this time.

I decided to head to a nearby cafe to chill and relax after enjoying the scenery of Stanley so I made my way to Stanley Plaza to explore the area. To my surprise, hidden in the small shopping mall are many small cafe that offers great coffee and snacks for a afternoon getaway. They even have vintage pinball machines that you can play! I ordered some snacks and sat down to indulge myself...
