  • The Stanley military cemetery is located less than a 15-minute walk from the town centre. To get there you need to take a nice walk along a curvy road but with little traffic in some stretches you can admire panoramic views of the sea. The cemetery is located on the left at the bottom of a descent. At the entrance there is a marble slab. To access to the cemetery you have to climb a staircase squiggle at the end of which you will find yourself in front of a towering stone cross. The Stanley military cemetery is a cemetery with graves (almost) all the same immersed in an undulating lawn and manicured. It is a succession of identical tombstone white and regularly spaced bars between them. It was touching to meet an older man of non-Chinese origin who prayed on one of the tombs. This gentleman pointed out to me (details that otherwise would have escaped me) that are buried there including children have died in less than a year old.

  • The Stanley Army's grave field has buried nearly 700 two war-fighters to defend Hong Kong. Most of them are not Hong Kong people, and some of them have to come to Hong Kong to reinforce themselves before the war. My Hong Kong people have to salute the heroes of the Class!

  • In addition to the market outside the Stanley Grave field can be seen, although it is in the vicinity, but it is recommended to take the bus to go. The atmosphere is very strong, and every tombstone is old and has a minimum of months. is an appropriate place for meditation.

  • Very beautiful, well-maintained cemetery. Jason Wordie leads historic walks here and does an excellent job of bringing the past to life. Google his name to find his site and book a tour.
  • Visited here in March 2005. Lest we forget.
  • Pay respect to those who serve and defend for us
  • 一處很安靜的地方,讀書的時候已喜歡這裡,站在山崗上,你可以看到海灣的美景,令外在記念碑那邊,你會發現當年不同國籍的軍人,怎樣保衛香港😭
