  • Hong Kong has a long history of parks, with tunnels leading to different parts of the park, with some different kinds of animals, but the environment is not very good because of the limited space, but it is a free animal park in Hong Kong the plant is very tall, and there are many interesting plants, unfortunately, the introduction of information is not very sufficient

  • The zoo and garden were AMAZING. The flowers were so pretty and fresh and the animals were active too. This place is free and what shook me more was its super clean and there's no smell of the animals at all. Nice place to enjoy and relax
  • Truly impressive well-maintained gardens complete with fountains, views, and even a mini zoo! It's great to be in the heart of downtown Hong Kong. Great photo ops here too, and it's free! It reminds me of New York's Central Park on a much smaller scale; a great respite from the hustle and bustle of the city.
  • Very nice place to visit. Considering that they are a small zoo it is very impressive that they have a large variety of apes and primates. It is also for free! A nice place to go to escape the Hong kong mall world. Very quiet.
  • Go early in the morning and see the locals exercising and listen to the birds come to life. Wonderful to see the contrast of flowers and skyscrapers. A great oasis in a busy city
  • bumped into this big humongous surprise of a thing, this zoological and botanical garden with happy birds and happy animals all-round, and so well kept as with most things Hong Kong, this made me truly and genuinely happy.
