Chinese 元朗

Yuen Long (Chinese: 元朗站) is a MTR Station located in the eastern of Yuen Long Town, Yuen Long District. It is an interchange between the West Rail Line and the Light Rail (Yuen Long Stop). It is between Kam Sheung Road and Long Ping stations on the West Rail Line. It is an elevated through-station with an island platform.

Located at the north-eastern part of Yuen Long New Town, the station is quite popular for the abundance of residential buildings nearby. Developers continue to develop housing near the station, with hopes to further increase the usage of the station.
