Tsuen Wan is a transport hub in Hong Kong’s New Territories. The district itself is large and includes Tsuen Wan New Town along with a few outlying islands. Hotels in Tsuen Wan are conveniently close to Hong Kong International Airport.
The architecture and monuments in Tsuen Wan are its main attractions, especially Tsing Ma and Ting Kau bridges. These two structures stand out when approaching the city from Kowloon. Another major site is Kowloon Gate, which stands on Ma Wan Island in the bay.
Tsuen Wan used to be known for industry, and its traditional heritage often gets overlooked. There’s an intriguing Hakka walled village in the area that now houses the Sam Tung Uk Museum. The exhibits inside explore the region’s agricultural heritage. There are also a few religious sites worth visiting for those with an evening to spare before a morning flight. These include the Western Monastery, Chuk Lam Sim Yuen and the Yuen Yuen Institute.
Most foreigners in Tsuen Wan are expats capitalizing on lower property costs. The Tsuen Wan MTR station connects to Kowloon and Hong Kong Island, so getting to and from sightseeing and commercial districts is easy. Tourists spending a few nights in their hotel in Tsuen Wan can plan a hike in Tai Mo Shan Country Park.
