About Kowloon Tong Station, Hong Kong
Kowloon Tong (Chinese: 九龍塘; Cantonese Yale: Gáulùngtòng) is a station on MTR's Kwun Tong Line and East Rail Line in New Kowloon, Hong Kong. The station serves Kowloon Tong and its vicinity, including Yau Yat Tsuen, the Festival Walk shopping centre, City University of Hong Kong and Hong Kong Baptist University. This station serves as one of the two interchange stations for the East Rail Line, leading up to the New Territories and entry point to mainland China. Therefore, it is one of the busiest stations in the system. The load of Kowloon Tong station was heavily reduced, when a new interchange station was built at Tsim Sha Tsui/East Tsim Sha Tsui. It is because, prior to the commissioning of the KCR East Rail extension to East Tsim Sha Tsui station, Kowloon Tong station was the only station offering such interchange to passengers. A new concourse for East Rail Line was opened on 15 April 2004 to increase its capacity. On 28 September 2008, turnstiles separating the respective concourse of Kwun Tong Line and East Rail Line were removed.Wikipedia

Kowloon Tong Station, Hong Kong Reviews - Write a Review
Always busy with traffic to and from Shenzhen. If you are going to take the East Rail Line to Shenzhen then get an octopus card and get validated to go into first class. You will usually get a seat.
Busiest station in Hong Kong. Avoid during rush hour if possible
An important interchange station for 2 lines: Kwun Tong and East Rail Lines, one of the busiest MTR stations. Exit C directly links to Festival Walk by air conditioned tunnel Rush hours are always crowded and chaotic, transfer tunnels are crammed with passengers. Sometimes you'll be probably hit by some impatient idiots dashing to the train that is about to depart MTR has hired many platform assistants to be on duty. They keep yelling at people not to board the already filled trains, or use escalators when carrying large baggages, but only a few listen
This station's capacity is not large enough to handle the traffic, people packed and poor air con. You will need extra time for queueing in this station.
So many people waiting for taxi here in the morning after 7:30
