Yau Ma Tei, is an area in the Yau Tsim Mong District in the south of the Kowloon Peninsula in Hong Kong. The area is also named Waterloo in English, after Waterloo Road. This name was used for the MTR station in the area when it was opened in 1979.

 

油麻地(本名油蔴地),位於香港九龍半島西部,行政上屬於油尖旺區。它的範圍北至登打士街接旺角,南至佐敦道接尖沙咀,即包括佐敦的北部。油麻地之名與油麻地天后廟有密切關係。根據天后廟內1870年(同治九年)所立碑記,當時該地稱為「蔴地」。後來到了1875年(光緒元年),當時「蔴地」是漁民曬船上麻纜的地方。不少經營補漁船的桐油及麻纜商店在那裡開設,故改稱為「油蔴地」(油麻地)。
