Ngau Chi Wan (Chinese: 牛池灣; pinyin: Niuchi Wan; lit. "cattle pond bay")[1] was a bay beneath Hammer Hill in New Kowloon, Hong Kong. It now refers to an area north of Choi Hung Estate.

Features[edit]

Amidst in an urban built-up area, the original Ngau Chi Wan Village remains. St. Joseph's Home for the Aged is famous in the area and now under redevelopment. The cluster of Ngau Chi Wan Civic Centre, Ngau Chi Wan Municipal Services Building and Ngau Chi Wan Sports Centre serve the needs of neighbouring housing estates.

Transport[edit]

The area is close to MTR Choi Hung Station. There are also bus and minibus links, via routes to Sai Kung District.[2]
