“Lok Ma Chau is a border crossing rather than a destination?”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2014

I am a bit of a public transport enthusiast (affectionately known as a "gunzel" here in Australia) and decided to take a ride on the line to Lok Ma Chau.

The station is big and spacious and, like others in Hong Kong, exceptionally clean.

I only planned to take a ride there and back but needed to use the lavatory at Lok Ma Chau station. Again is was spotless.

However, trying to return to the train (going up the stairs I had come down) I noticed "entry prohibited" signs and became somewhat concerned. Luckily, there was a lift (elevator) close by and I took that up one floor to the platform where I had alighted a few minutes previously.

I accept that train "joy riders" like me may be few and far between but it seemed to me that Lok Ma Chau was intended as a border crossing station (not sure if Australians can use like Lo Wu).

I quickly returned to Sheng Shui where I quickly resumed my travels (on the 77K bus to Yuen Long) but that is another story.
