Winds of change

It's a Saturday morning and the corridors of the Jockey Club Eduyoung College in Tin Shui Wai echo with the sound of an orchestra warming up. In the second-floor rehearsal room, the initially flat blasts of the brass instruments, and the discordant bowing of the strings, are gradually tuned to the note a violinist plays.

A winning pitch for Tin Shui Wai

Rugby officials want to turn Tin Shui Wai from 'the city of sadness' into a field of dreams. The Hong Kong Rugby Football Union wants to teach more young people and children in the northernmost district about a sport whose fan base mostly consists of professionals and expatriates. It is a bold experiment in crossing the barriers of wealth, culture and geography. We wish it every success.

Paying up just to go to work

In Hong Kong, up to 73.9 per cent of the working population needs to commute from their home to other parts of the city for work. Tin Shui Wai is no exception. Yet the only form of transport to and from Tin Shai Wai is MTR's West Rail and buses.

On two wheels or four?

Within Tin Shui Wai, the light rail dominates. It is the only form of public transportation available in the district unless you want to take a taxi. Yet the minimum fare for travelling by light rail is HK$3.80.

That's not cheap at all considering it costs only HK$2 to travel on a tram from Shau Kei Wan to Sai Wan on Hong Kong Island.
