  • Not much here, but it's nicely done. They've got a couple of rooms on the history of trains in HK, plus a few cars you can walk through. Pretty laid back. Probably not worth making the trip out, but worth visiting if you're in the area.
  • I like this train museum a lot. It combines the tranquility of Tai Po district, an ancient feel from the green surrounding and a historical education on train transportation. Its set up is a reminiscent of an old train station. There are old train carriages for visitors to go on board and take pictures. These train carriages are well maintained and clean! It is a photogenic place, so couples and university graduates like to have their professional photos taken there!
  • Neat and concise summary of the history of the station with a thorough documentation of the merge between KCR and MTR. Nice exhibits of old ticket box and railway engines in a very natural environment with local trees. Also very cool to be located beside the active MTR'S East Rail Line
  • Free admission. Great for train lovers and family visitors. Exhibits are well maintained and in excellent condition. Overall, a glimpse of Hong Kong's past.
  • Well-maintained exhibits, visitors can stay as long as they like. Conveniently near the market in case you need to eat or buy snacks.

Where to stay in Hong Kong

Head to Tsim Sha Tsui for the main tourist section of Hong Kong, where it's easy to find reasonably priced accommodations to suit your particular requirements, with more expensive hotels closer to the water and side streets offering budget hostels. You can also consider Hong Kong Island, which offers easy links to the mainland via its ferry and train lines. Chain hotels sit in the northern section of the island, where luxury and budget options remain available.
