Wong Tai Sin

Wong Tai Sin MTR station is on the Kwun Tong Line.

Exit A shares Exit E and is the western exit of Wong Tai Sin MTR station.  It takes you to a dull Lung Cheung Road, which brightened up considerably when I returned to leave later in the afternoon.

In the distance here is the Lion Rock through which passes the Lion Rock tunnel taking traffic from the New Territories into Kowloon.

Not sure what building here justified the flying of both the Hong Kong SAR flag and the PRC flag.

At the far end of the plaza, and across Shatin Pass Road, I was surprised to see classical squater homes so close to 'modern' Wong Tai Sin.

On leaving Exit A of Wong Tai Sin MTR station, I could hear the sound of dance music and could see groups of youngsters practising dance moves.  Each took their turn on stage with quite a large and varied audience.
