South Horizons

The station platform has a stunning mosiac mural, designed by Karen Pow Cheuk-mei and constructed with the help of local school children. You will find the walls of many MTR stations covered in small tiles, but nothing quite like this. There are 500,000 hand-painted tiles covering a space 40 metres long. My photos really do not do justice to this mural, but here they are anyway.

The South Horizons MTR station only has one Exit A, and this leads to the Ap Lei Chau Estate.

Looking back at the station entrance and some nearby tower blocks...

I walked down to the main road, and was confronted with more tower blocks, more road works, and a huge solid shopping mall called Marina Square East Centre.

Walking back to Exit A of South Horizons MTR station, I saw the entrance to Marina Square East Market and popped inside. This was a delightful little market where the food looked fresh and inviting. So here is a collection of images from inside the market.
