Description:
Hung Hom Station, formerly known as Kowloon Station (九龍車站) is a station on the East Rail Line and West Rail Line in Hong Kong. It is located in Yau Tsim Mong District, Kowloon, next to the Cross Harbour Tunnel. Hung Hom Station is one of the three Hong Kong ports-of-entry on the MTR network, along with Lo Wu Station and Lok Ma Chau Station.

It should be noticed that its fare is quite different from nearby stations. At least $1 more is charged for passengers coming from Hong Kong Island, and around $3 for passengers coming from Tung Chung or Disneyland Resort.
