About
This place is temporarily closed. Hong Kong West Kowloon Station is the cross-boundary gateway for High Speed Rail in Hong Kong. The giant curtain wall of the station comprises over 4,000 irregular glass panels, and the spectacular structure is supported by 9 sets of massive columns of different heights. The curved ceiling of the station was built with over 8,000 tons of steel, which is almost the weight of the Eiffel Tower!

We arrived more than an hour early to get a train to Guiyang. Had purchased tickets online. Station incredibly crowded on a Saturday - we missed our train. Arrive at least 2 hours early!

There's a free observation deck that's mostly empty on the roof. Structure is marvelously designed but most of the outside seems hardly maintained. The brilliantly designed structure is mostly the outer entry/retail area as inside where the ticketing and customs area remains pretty ordinary. Must recommend for architecture enthusiasts.

This is Hong Kong's main railway station to China. A vast complex near Tsim Sha Tsui, West Kowloon Station is a pleasant place to wander even for non-travelers. The view of Kowloon from the garden is particularly nice. The station itself is spacious and accessible.

Had already a ticket but as I arrived at the station two hours early, I thought I would try and change it at the change ticket counter for an earlier train. That was a mistake. Firstly I was told I could not change the ticket because it was issued in China (though they changed their minds when pressed). Then that I did not have enough time to be processed for a train that was not due to leave for a further 50 minutes.

As frequent user of this service it has never taken me 50 minutes to go through security, customs and immigration. For the record, on this occasion, it took me 15 minutes to clear the entire security, immigration and customs process.

My lesson learnt. I should have just bought a new ticket!

Direct high speed train from here to most major cities in China, the station is connected to MTR rail line, with covered bus and taxi stations just outside. Restaurants and fast food services are conveniently located on most levels. The China/Hongkong ferry terminal is about 10 minutes walk towards Tsim Sha Tsui. This is a good place to visit even if you are not taking a train, the building are very photogenic inside out.

This is a great station to catch a train to SZ or other areas of the mainland if you're on a diet, as there are zero places to eat once you are past security. I don't even remember there being any water vending machines. So make sure you're full before you get to the station, although if you get hungry easily, the suggested 45 minutes might make you want to eat your fingers.

Attention to all tourist
If you are joining a tour be careful of the special arrangement from Wing On Travel
The breakfast they are offering can’t put in the mouth. Coffee or bean milk were not hot and the food unbearable.
And the others are extremely expensive. So better have a nice breakfast yourself otherwise your mood for the rest of the day would be ruined
