    I live at the Austin which is sitting on top of Austin mtr station ( easy to goto science park - west rail & east rail). Central is basically one stop from Kowloon station.
    the ferry is actually quite infrequent,

    From Sha Tin District to HK Island involve traveling through two tunnels by road or MTR, this is the most painful part. Eagle's Nest Tunnel and Shing Mun Tunnel are the least congested tunnels in Sha Tin. By buses or minibuses are relatively faster than Lion Rock Tunnel and Tates Cairn Tunnels. Also the least congested and most expensive cross harbor tunnel is the Western Harbour Crossing.

    Living near Cheung Sha Wan or Tsuen Wan West can use both Tung Chung Line MTR to HK Station and either tunnel to Sha Tin MTR Station quickly.

    I live near City One Shatin and get the bus to Central daily, takes about 30-40 mins on average.

    Tsuen Wan is the Centre of Hong Kong. Tons of affordable food, shopping, and market options. The waterfront has a nice open park with a brand new sports centre and if you want to ride a bike you can do so along Castle Peak Road all the way to the Gold Coast. There's fantastic hiking nearby and you can go mountain biking on Tai Mo Shan. There's also a BMX park and skateboard park and you can get anywhere in town quickly due to its location. There's also have private hospital that is open for outpatients on Sundays and charges low fees for a visit. We're also thinking of moving there, hence the suggestion.
