  • The gardens are a tranquil escape from the concrete jungle of Hong Kong & as entrance is free it is bustling with expats & their kids seeking space to run around in some shade. The flora is well maint...  more »
  • Came to the return of Victoria Peak. That would be around if 30 minutes or so and the Zoo and Botanical Garden. Available free in the Park is well maintained and clean. I think that animals are animals, such as birds, monkeys, turtles would feel tired in the hustle and bustle of the city at the perfect place.

  • The Hong Kong Zoo is a famous leisure park in Hong Kong with a lot of different animals and plants, and if we are going to have a little meditation, don't harassment disturb animals and other people.

  • Here’s a refreshingly clean and entertaining park. There is lots to see and plenty of waking to do. Caged monkeys and birds which are cool to see, lots of different types of flowers and trees, a nice playground for kids and it’s all for free. Surprisingly there are restrooms which are very clean for a public park restroom. Be aware though that some parts are very steep and uphill and the park splits into two sections, you will need to walk along a main road and up some steep steps to reach the monkeys and birds. It’s worth it though but make sure you don’t get lost as there are some confusing steps you have to go up to.
  • Very good children playground with good and safe play facilities. Washrooms convenient. Zoo has plenty of good collection of exotic animals and birds. Zoo is clean and tidy with no smell. Greenhouse has plenty of interesting exotic plants. Fountain is famous for its design. Lots of stone structures worth taking pictures.
  • A nice garden in Central, it is free and you can see nice wild birds up on the trees, good flowers, and some caged monkeys and turtles. Good fresh air and as close to nature as you can get at mid-levels Hong Kong. But I don't like how the big birds are kept in double netted dark cages and orangutans are kept in very depressing enclosures... oh well...
  • Very nice park, some really good animals especially considering it is a free park. The orangutans and monkeys are very cute. The park is well set out, but lots of steep climbs. There is a small refreshments area too. A good place to combine with the hk park
  • Pretty big park with a lot of birds and some mammals on display. It would be a nice stop for catching your breath on the walk back from the peak or on the way up. Many entrances and exits so make sure you won't get lost.
