The Hong Kong Disneyland MTR

I referenced the Hong Kong Disneyland MTR yesterday.  Well, here's a look at the grand station that makes up this terminus stop and gateway to the Hong Kong Disneyland Resort! As you can see, it's a beautiful structure, soaring and sleek, with arching steel trusses, beautiful greenery, and wide spaces.  At night, it's a quiet contrast to the hustle and bustle of guests coming and going during the busy hours of the day.  But then again, I love my architectural shots to be empty.  The less people, the better. Let the space speak for itself!

Descending the escalator down to the train platform.

Lovely steel trussed arches.

Looking back at the escalator.

Waiting for the train to arrive!

  1. I had no idea this even existed! What an incredibly beautiful structure. Steampunk elements mixed with elegant modern ideas.

    1. Yeah, it's pretty wonderful, and I didn't nearly have as much time to investigate details as I'd have liked. I keep finding things in the photos that I didn't notice in person, like the Sorcerer's Hat base and Mickey badges on the "columns."
