What you should know about Tsuen Wan

Tsuen Wan may be one of Hong Kong's newest towns, but its surrounding hills are resonant with the echoes of the past. Mist-curled mountains, venerable tea-houses, historic walled villages, and Buddhist monasteries—these are just some of the delights that await you in this far-flung district on the western fringes of metropolitan Hong Kong. In the modern town, by contrast, Tsuen Wan showcases some of city's largest shopping centers and one of its biggest hotels.

Hotels in Tsuen Wan

Accommodation in Tsuen Wan is made of an odd mix of smaller local hotels and huge business complexes that tower over the city. The Panda hotel is a striking example of the latter, a 911-room four-star hotel whose bold panda mural draws eyes around the city. Its splendor matches its size, with a large outdoor pool, sauna, fully-equipped gym, and business center. Another modern Tsuen Wan hotel that impresses is the four-star L'hotel Nina et Convention Centre. Guests are wowed by its good-sized rooms (all 1,608 of them), indoor and outdoor pools, and excellent value-for-money.

Things to see in Tsuen Wan

Much of Tsuen Wan's appeal lies in the promise those forested hills, but the town itself exerts its own pull. Its shopping malls are among the most spectacular in Hong Kong, with the huge Discovery Park famed for its tropical rain forest theme, complete with waterfalls and vine-clad pillars. Perhaps Tsuen Wan's most intriguing sight is the historic walled village, Sam Tung Uk Museum. Over 200-years old, this museum enclave showcases rural life for the Hakka people who first settled the area. The real-life village of Cheun Lung Tsuen, perched half-way up the 3,000-foot-high Tai Mo Shan mountain, can trump that though. The spring-waters used by its villagers are famed for producing quality tea, and it still boasts numerous refreshing tea-houses. A different kind of sustenance is available at the Western Monastery, in the mountain's foothills. This beautiful Buddhist complex, built in 1970, may not be very ancient but its spiritual quality feels timeless.

Good for business travelers and adventurers

With its location triangulated between the international airport, the urban core of Hong Kong, and the cross-border metropolis of Shenzen, accommodation in Tsuen Wan appeals strongly to the local business traveler. There are plenty of excellent business hotels in Tsuen Wan serving their needs too. And, unlike in Hong Kong, room rates here are pretty affordable. That low-cost also attracts the more adventurous budget tourist, looking for a Hong Kong trip with a difference. With its miles of treks, vast rain-forest preserves, hill-side temples, and tea-houses, a hotel in Tsuen Wan can certainly transform a vacation into an adventure.

How to get to Tsuen Wan

Tsuen Wan is relatively close to Hong Kong International Airport, only 17 miles away over the Tung Wan channel. That means a taxi from the airport is a good option for many, despite the cost. The Airport Express from the airport is another option, but you'll have to change at Tsing Yi station. There are several choices to complete your travel to Tsuen Wan from there, using a combination of metro or bus. Once in Tsuen Wan, you'll find walking is an easy way to explore the city, while getting to Hong Kong is simply a matter of catching the Tsuen Wan metro line.
