My guest posting of Stanley Hong Kong:

Aside from the alluring Stanley promenade that overlook the vast sea and the Stanley market that lets visitors go home happy loaded with goods, there is a side street behind the promenade and the market that shows a piece of the old Stanley.
This strip of identical looking houses is ancient and a preserved relic of the HK government, but they are also occupied and lived by people. I think it is really cool how people are still living in these houses, but it must be so annoying to have people constantly photographing their houses. Residents actually have to closed their drapes or black out their windows to ignore all of us peeping toms.
Haha, sorry to share that the title sounds more attractive than the actual thousand year old well. As I walk along the nicely paved part of the road leading up to the well, I was getting more and more excited at seeing what a well that has lived for over a thousand years look like.
Yep, I can’t believe all I saw was a hole with wires locked over it. My sister actually said it is just like any sewers you would find on the streets, so sad!
I like the Stanley promenade, it is always filled with children running around and chattering over the weekend. On one side of the promenade is rows of Western restaurants serving pizza, burgers, and drinks over-looking the expansive sea. The promenade is more than a boardwalk lined with eateries, it is also the home to the sea vessel museum. And as with any other places in HK with the water close by, you will see the “goddess of the sea” temple on the shorelines to protect fishermen and people out at sea.
