Citizens spent 30 minutes queuing to look at ancient artifacts exhibited at the new Sung Wong Toi station.
As the crowd grew inside the station yesterday, passengers were reminded that they must leave the station within 150 minutes.
A man surnamed Ngan from the Northern district was one of the first ones to catch a glimpse of the new station. “The environment of the station is acceptable, but I think there can be more cultural relics on display on the platform,” he said.
The station will be the first in Hong Kong to include facilities to exhibit artifacts, which will display around 400 artifacts that could be dated back to the Song and Yuan dynasty, which means those artifacts could be over 1,000 years old.
