  • It's very nice place near Victoria Peak, free of charge. There are three sectors: birds, monkeys and water birds. 
  • I decided to pop in for a visit as I was returning from the Peak Tram Terminal. It is kind of nearby, but lots of steps and uphill walking which is hard going on a hot and humid day. The gardens thems...  read more »
  • Neat. Cool that there are animals to see for free. As cool as it is, this place was a disappointment. This is by far the least educational and diverse botanical gardens I've visited in any major city. It is also the least pretty. Dozens of feral cats here in the park, mostly around the zoo. I had not seen any other undesirable creature anywhere in town. The location is really great, but the place needs some cleaning up. There are lots of great parks on both sides of the harbor. Don't waste your time at this one.
  • This is a wonderful (and free) park and zoo experience. There are a lot of birds, and some primates to see, and a lovely scenery to walk around in. There is also a covered aviary park you can walk through and see some exotic birds. It's really great that the HK government provides this for free, and it's well worth a visit.
  • Went in the late afternoon, when all the animals were asleep, so couldn't get the real benefit. Also, the mesh on many of the cages is so thick it's hard to see into some of the enclosures. Surely the best time to go is the proverbial "feeding time at the zoo" when the animals are all out and ready to eat.
  • Small but neat and tidy. A good break from Hong Kong busy streets. You can enjoy some quiet time here.
  • It's free admission. You can see some animals here like orang utan, turtles, monkeys and birds. For Botanical, they are everywhere. You also can find it in a green house. There is also WiFi that you can use.
