Here are a few shots of Stanley, a hot tourist spot on the southern tip of the Hong Kong Island.

1 This was once a police station in Stanley but as the community in Stanley became larger, it was replaced by a new police statement on the opposite side of the road. This monumental building is now used as a supermarket. The colonial construction outlook is attractive.

A temple for worshipping an ancient woman by the name Tin Hau who calmed the wind and the sea. Stanley is a fishing village in the past, so the dwellers there worshipped Tin Hau for good luck.

This is called the Blake Pier, named after one of the governors of the colonial times. It was origianlly situated in Central but because of a drastic upheaval of the coastal line therefor more highrises, the pier was demolished. The every piece of the pier was saved and rebuilt here in Stanley.
