  • Nice place to spend a leisurely outdoor day at. A good mix of mainly local animals and plants on display. A shuttle bus will bring you to the higher levels of the farm and you can then take in the beautiful views of the surrounding areas from there. Then take a stroll down though the nicely shaded trails to enjoy the peaceful surroundings and the sounds of the stream running through the farm.
  • Nice place to hike and to relax. Lovely animals. But there're no food services and water supply, meaning that you have to bring your own water and meals. The view from mountain top is spectacular.
  • Great to have the tourist coach bus, that brings us to each spot, nice view in the peak, kwun Yum Hill :-)
  • Good hiking paths (different ones available for varying scenery or physical abilities), free/clean drinking water (sourced from the mountain) at rest stops, shuttle services (buy your ticket in advance). I always find something new to appreciate here.
  • Biggest botanic garden in Hong Kong. There are some green house at the lower farm site. When you go up to the upper part and the margin of the farm, you can find quite a lot of good native trees and plants. Good place to spend a day for leisure.

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.
