Okay, so maybe that correlation isn’t entirely accurate, but Tseun Wan is definitely one of the city’s most buzzing neighbourhoods with a tremendous variety of things to doIf you’re visiting and don’t have much time there, here’s the skinny on the best activities and the best noms.

5 awesome things five minutes from Tsuen Wan MTR station

Beans
  • Restaurants
  • Cafés
  • Tsuen Wan

An award-winning coffee shop, Beans is the place to go in Tsuen Wan for your caffeine fix. A must-try is the rainbow latte or one of the flavoured lattes, like creme brulee, French vanilla or chocolate cookie. If all that isn’t enough to entice you, Beans also does crazy 3D latte art like Fuji Mountain. Head out of Exit A1 at the MTR station and you won’t be far away.

Dudu Partyroom
  • Things to do
  • Tsuen Wan

Okay, this one’s a bit more than a five-minute walk from Exit A3, but we love it, so it’s going in. Dudu is a 2,300 sq ft all-inclusive party room venue that comes with a plethora of video games including PS4, Nintendo Switch, an arcade machine, karaoke, mahjong and an air hockey table. So far so ordinary. But the real draws here are the pretty pastel colour scheme, the massive ball pit – don’t pretend you’re not interested – and a costume corner. There’s a minimum charge of $88 per person for three hours, which is, frankly, jaw-droppingly cheap.

The largest cat cafe in Hong Kong, The Cats Tearoom houses around 30 kitties, 11 of which are strays. With 1,600 sq ft of space for the cats to prowl around, chow down on a range of Western dishes and delicious dessert as you play with your new feline buddies. Aside from adopting strays, The Cats Tearoom donates regularly to various animal shelters in Hong Kong. A guaranteed good time for cat lovers and for a good cause. Go south out of Exit B1 and you’ll soon be feline fine. 

  • Restaurants
  • Tsuen Wan

They don’t just serve your regular ol’ Horlicks and Ovaltine here. Gala Café serves these staple drinks as souped-up icy milkshakes. Not only that, this place is exceptional for its extraordinarily thick scrambled egg sandwiches – getting your mouth around one is a hot mess. And if eggs aren’t your thing, try the freshly deep-fried wonton served with sweet chili sauce. To get here, head out of Exit B1.

餃子屋 (Dumpling House)

  • Tsuen Wan

Despite being tucked away inside a shopping mall, this restaurant is well-known for its large dumplings. There’s no shortage of flavours and options to chow on. There are your traditional ingredients like chive and bok choi, as well quirkier but no less delicious options like cheese, lamb and onion, and spicy pork. Find it in the Cheong Ning Building, which is a five minutes walk from Exit B2.
