Tai Wo Hau MTR station on the Tsuen Wan Line is one of the oldest stations in the New Territories.

Coming up from Exit A you end up in a park which was full of surprises.

As I entered the park, I heard the faint but beautiful sounds of a classical guitar.  Perhaps he was not allowed to practise at home?

In the park were fragrant Bauhenia trees; this is the national flower of Hong Kong.

Up at the back of Exit A of To Wai Hau MTR station is Kwok Shui Raod, and some low rise terrace houses.  These are a rare sight in the New Territories and look back to the older times of semi-rural life.
