  • Free entry to a lovely outdoor space with all sorts of plants and some animals. Considering it is free, it is absolutely lovely. Public restroom is nice and clean as well. Water fountain is available to keep yourself well hydrated. There are birds, mammals (mainly monkeys and chimps), and tortoises. There are information boards explaining what things are. We went on boxing day and still it wasn't crowded at all. It was a small hike to get there but it is not hard to find. Lovely little gem that shouldn't be missed. We had a lovely walk.
  • I really enjoyed this garden. There were many different species of plants I was thrilled to encounter. I went during a weekday and there were not many people there. It's an easy place to just stroll around in, take your time, and enjoy the flora; and it's definitely a nice break from the very crowded concrete jungle of the city.
  • A nice and calm place to be that isn't really mentioned too much. It contains animals on one side which includes an assortment of monkeys and reptiles that are very fun to look at. A tunnel connects the gardens and aviary to that part of the park. Overall a slightly hidden gem that is definitely worth checking out!
  • A very nice place. Beautiful to walk around. I was passing the area so decided to have a look and didn't regret it. Loved seeing all the animals. It was funny seeing the monkeys showing interest in other monkeys having a quarrel. I will visit again next time I'm in Hong Kong.
  • only went to the birds and plant part of the park which is only half of the park, a very big park worth going as its really nice but i won't go again. be prepared for a tiring walk though because there's steep slopes and stairs everywhere. there's water cooler and toilets available there. if i'm not wrong, there's no management people there.

Where to stay in Hong Kong
