The Ma On Shan area to me is very interesting. When I was in primary school, we would go to Wu Kai Sha for a camping trip. The first time I went there back in the late 80s, we would take the ferry to the camp. There were a few high-rises within the distance but there were no road connections with the camp. The area still had a rural feel to it.
Now, the place became too urbanized. Now the MTR has its end station in Wu Kai Sha.
The built-up area is actually not so big. It is surrounded by countryside, bounded by Sai Kung and Tolo Harbour. Most of the waterfront views are quite serene facing the ocean and the reservoir beyond.
Although there is an MTR station now, the area north of the station facing the waterfront is very low-density while the skyscraper residentials are behind it on the south side. It's not exactly in the middle of the city either.
