Yau Ma Tei MTR station is the western terminus of the Kwun Tong Line as well as an interchange station on the Tsuen Wan Line.

When you come out of Exit A1, you are straight into Pitt Street; there is no 'looking right' or 'looking left' from this Exit A1 of Yau Ma Tei MTR station.

As Pitt Street was the only route form Exit A1, I walked a little further and looked down Portland Street which crosses Pitt Street.  Here there is a full mixture of building styles, and some charming old noodle shops.
