  • 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.

Where to stay in Hong Kong

Head to Tsim Sha Tsui for the main tourist section of Hong Kong, where it's easy to find reasonably priced accommodations to suit your particular requirements, with more expensive hotels closer to the water and side streets offering budget hostels. You can also consider Hong Kong Island, which offers easy links to the mainland via its ferry and train lines. Chain hotels sit in the northern section of the island, where luxury and budget options remain available.
