  • This beautiful park was mistakenly not discussed in a city guide that I had bought from Hong Kong. It is beautiful. You can also admire birds, reptiles and monkeys, but the cages of some monkeys were still too small I find

  • We went here a couple of times during our visit. It's a lovely place to walk around and as a bonus it's free. Lovely animals who are interesting to watch with good enclosures. Lots of vegetation with ...  more »
  • 在香港石屎森林之地, 要觀賞動物的地方並不多, 動植物公園確是一個不錯的地方。對於小朋友友來說, 不止是單單看書本上的圖片, 能夠親身見到不同動物, 確是獲益良多。這公園也頗大的, 鳥魚花香, 很多新鮮花草樹木味道, 很適合一定大小, 老幼咸宜的一天活動。

  • Funny story; I was not actually planning on coming to Hong Kong Zoological and Botanical Gardens, but because of a sudden change in plans and the location was about right, I ended up at the Zoo. This was one of those great "pleasant surprise" situations. I was first surprised to find out that there was no entrance fee, meaning it was FREE! Secondly, I was surprised to find out how well maintained it was. Particularly because it was free. I thought that it would be depressing and dirty, but it was none of that. When I was there, it was actually feeding time for most of the animals, and the keepers were running around with all sorts of different things to feed the animals. I was partial to the raccoons and the fact that they were feeding them locust. This is totally worth spending a few hours at if you've been to Hong Kong before. If this is your first time, a quick stroll through is more than enough. I would advise making sure you see the other sights, if it is your first time like The Peak or Kowloon Walled city park.
  • Free. Great aviaries and mammal enclosures, including huge orangutans. Very well laid out and tons of plants and flowers, plenty of places to sit and enjoy the views and sounds. Also a small kiosk for sandwiches and snacks. Spent a good couple of hours here
  • An unexpected jewel of natural beauty hidden in the center of a city packed sky-high with buildings. A stroll among the beautiful birds and exotic plats is a great way to unwind.
  • Nothing special after all. There were some makis and a lot of different birds. Nice to walk through once, but not a must.
  • Free 'zoo' in the middle of the city with tons of playful and rambunctious monkeys. We stumbled upon it, Definitely worth a visit. Would go again.
