  • (1888PressRelease) September 17, 2015 - Easily seen from Campus Hong Kong, the towering Tsing Ma Bridge is an impressive engineering achievement that lays claim to being the world's longest suspension bridge carrying both rail and road traffic.

    Opened in 1997, the bridge boasts a main span length of 1.37 km and an overall length of 2.2 km and connects Lantau Island and Hong Kong International Airport with the rest of Hong Kong. It was named for the two areas it connects across the Ma Wan Channel - Tsing Yi and Ma Wan.

    Tsuen Wan district provides a more relaxed and residential atmosphere compared to the hustle and bustle of downtown Hong Kong. A good place to visit for an idea of the area's past is Sam Tung Uk Museum, which was declared an historical monument in 1981 and which offers a picture into earlier days when Tsuen Wan was a sprinkling of rural communities bustling with village and agricultural life.

    For more culture, Buddhist Western Monastery is a village 10 minutes from the Tsuen Wan town centre that is home to historic temples and monasteries. Yuen Yuen Institute is a collection of temples, pavilions, monasteries and prayer halls dedicated to Confucian, Buddhist and Taoist beliefs.

    Tsuen Wan's modern side includes various shopping centres such as Tsuen Wan Plaza, Citywalk, Citywalk 2 and Discovery Park, which is one of Hong Kong's largest shopping centres. Students staying at Campus Hong Kong can enjoy discounts and other benefits at Discovery Park participating stores and outlets until 31 December 2015; please enquire at the Front Desk for more information.

    For those looking to appreciate nature, Tsuen Wan doesn't disappoint. As well as the option of enjoying a stroll on the beach, there are two country parks to explore. Within Shing Mun Country Park and Tai Mo Shan Country Park is Tai Mo Shan peak, the highest point in Hong Kong at 957 metres (3,140 feet). The hiking here affords spectacular views over Tsuen Wan and Kowloon.

    Tsuen Wan's various sights and sounds are all easily reached from the Campus Hong Kong student apartments in Tsuen Wan Road, which offer among the newest and most stylish off-campus student housing in Hong Kong.

    And when it comes time to explore beyond Tsuen Wan, the MTR (Mass Transit Railway) opens the door to the myriad attractions, activities and exotic sights and sounds of wider Hong Kong. Campus Hong Kong runs a complimentary shuttle bus to and from the nearby Tsuen Wan and Tsuen Wan West MTR stations.
