Kowloon West, Olympic & Tai Kok Tsui

West Kowloon is a newly developed district which has risen above Kowloon Station and constructed on reclaimed land as part of the Airport Core Programme when the new airport was built.

Kowloon Station serves both the Airport Express and the Tung Chung line. On the west side of the district is the highway exit from the Western Harbour Crossing from HK Island to the New Territories and HK Airport. Further on is the West Kowloon Cultural District.

The area extends to Canton Road in the east. To the west and south is Victoria Harbour. To its north lie the areas of Olympic Station and Tai Kok Tsui. The station was named Olympic on 16 December 1996, paying tribute to those achievements of our successful Hong Kong athletes and it is is decorated with the pictures of 1996 Summer Olympics.
