Ball sports are also becoming increasingly popular in Hong Kong. The builders of the urban Kowloon train station also jumped on this train.

No fewer than 16 skyscrapers look like gigantic bodyguards for the comparatively small train station.

To ensure that the departure at the destination station, the airport, takes place quickly, there is also a check-in counter for passengers on one of the three station floors.
Surrounded by a green stripe of nature, the small and large children can live out their urge to move on the sports field. The children can practice ball sports in the “sports cage”. Outside there is a playground where the little ones ...
