Shatin Districts Maps - Toruist Guide, Attractions
The Sha Tin District covers approximately 70 km², including the Sha Tin New Town and several country parks. Built mostly on reclaimed land in Sha Tin Hoi, the well-developed Sha Tin New Town comprises mainly residential areas along the banks of the Shing Mun River Channel. In the early 1970s it was a rural township of about 30,000 people. After Sha Tin's first public housing estate, Lek Yuen Estate, was completed in 1976, the settlement began to expand. Today, about 65% of the district's population lives in public rental housing, housing under Hong Kong's Tenants Purchase Scheme, or Home Ownership Scheme. Sha Tin has now become a major new community, including an extension at Ma On Shan, of about 640,000 people today. The total development area of the new town in Sha Tin and Ma On Shan is about 20 km².
Situated at the heart of Sha Tin, New Town Plaza is a great place for shopping. It is a flagship shopping center of Sung Hung Kai Properties. Encompassing an area of 200,000 sq meters, it is one of the largest shopping centers in Hong Kong. As it is close to KCR Station, customers flood into the shopping center at weekends. Sha Tin New Town Plaza consists of three parts: Phase One, Phase Three and Grand Central Plaza. New Town Plaza Phase One is composed of eight floors, where many famous shops sell a great variety of commodities.
Located on the third floor, on the podium of the New Town Plaza, Snoopy's World is a paradise for Snoopy fans. Covering an area of 40,000 sq meters, it is the first Snoopy outdoor playground in Asia and only the second in the world.
Besides, Sha Tin is also a paradise for gourmets. Sha Tin Roasted Pigeon is popular with tourists from home and abroad, and in order to understand the unique culture of Hong Kong, Hong Kong Heritage Museum is your best choice.
