From Tsing Yi Station go East out of the shopping center, from Exit G (ask for Starbucks and then MacDonald's). Getting out of the shopping mall is not easy the first time... it can be very confusing, but keep trying until you get outside and you until you see the seaside. The sea is the 'Rambler channel'Walk along the seaside promenade until you get to GRAND HORIZON estate, see pictures of what to look for below.


Detailed directions:
From the airport, take the Airport Express (60 HK $) to Tsing Yi station, the first stop on your way to the city.
Go down ONE level and you reach the first level of Maritime square.
Look for Marks and Spencer shop at exit A2,



 then go into the shopping area and look for Starbucks,

Then look for the ground floor, ask for MacDonald's or the Cinema which are are on the ground floor.

Take lifts or escalators down to the ground level and leave by the mall exit near Mc Donald's towards the Water Promenade (this is mall exit G). If you use a magnetic compass to navigate, just head East until you get out of the mall and find the sea, the Rambler Channel.


This is the sign at the East exit, (Exit G) of the Maritime Square shopping mall, facing the sea, the Rambler Channel. This exit has MacDonald's and Golden Harvest Cinema (GH Tsing Yi Multiplex). So you can also ask for those if you want to find this exit.

Walk straight on past the famous Tai Hing chicken restaurant on your right at the corner.
