 Tsuen Wan West Station
Tsuen Wan West is the only underground station on the KCRC West Rail, Hong Kong, located between Mei Foo and Kam Sheung Road station.
Nevertheless, the waterfront path built during the stations' consruction connected the two ends of the town, significantly improved the scenery of the area, and also provided an excellent leisure place for many southern and western Tsuen Wan residents.
However, the station has a low usage since operation (actually some claimed that it's the least used station on the system, which already does not have a satisfactory usage), because the station is on the newly reclaimed land, meaning it is somehow in the middle of nowhere.
