    The Treasures from Sacred Hill Exhibition is setup within the paid area of the Sung Wong Toi MTR Station and is well worth a few minutes to enjoy seeing artefacts discovered during excavation works (2012-2015) that took place when the MTR Station and line was being constructed a few years back.

    During the excavation works, artefacts dating from as early as the Song-Yuan period (late 10th century) to the mid-20th century were unearthed. Managed by the Hong Kong Antiquities and Monuments Office, a nice selection of these artefacts are displayed in two areas, allowing passenger riders to view and enjoy local treasures.

    Items on display include old minted coins, celadon and other pottery fragments, some with decorative patterns and ink markings. Information is provided in Chinese and English and there are bar codes nearby where you can download a more informative brochure from the AMO office if you want to lear more. You can walk through the exhibition display stops in 10-15 minutes and be on your way.

    Note: If you are using Song Wong Toi Station for your visit to the nearby Kowloon Walled City Park or the Song Wong Toi Garden to see the Sacred Hill memorial, it is well worth allowing a few extra minutes here to enjoy viewing the small selection of ancient treasures associated with both as part of your visit.

    There are immigrations to clear if you are going to Shenzhen from Hong Kong. So it is advisable that you should reach the high speed station in HK early, and that you have your passport ready as well.
    There are no food stalls in the waiting area, so once you pass immigration, you can be hungry if you had not eaten. So eat before you clear immigration!
    Of course, you can also eat in the train, but beware: they much prefer paying by QRCodes/scanning, and if you pay cash, pay exact amount because they do not give change.

    Overall trip was okay, but service standards much to be desired.

    This is a truly excellent service which, depending the timetable and stops, takes 50- 65 mins fro Kowloon West to Guangzhou South. I pre-book via Trip.com for which I pay a booking fee and then another moderate fee when picking-up my ticket at Kowloon West station. It is important for a first time user to be careful to allow sufficient time for ticket collection, HK and PRC immigration processes. Security is a lot less stressful than for travelling by air. This is in my opinion the best way to go from HK to GZ. Two metro lines operate from Guangzhou South so the notoriously troublesome GZ road traffic may be eliminated or reduced depending on a travellers hinal destination address.
