  • This park full of monkey around and near Sham Shui Po MTR, you can by taxi or by bus come here just around 10 mins. Also you can hiding starting here to Shan Tin or Tsuen Wan, more detail you can Google or PM me.
  • Not much nature and not much hiking, just a level asphalt road. But the monkeys are everywhere, and it's not the sort of monkeys you see in Thailand or elsewhere. They're pretty wild and they feel like they own the place. Don't stare, don't make noises. If you're lucky you can watch them jump from trees into the water, this is hilarious. Great experience overall.
  • Can anybody tell me where it is ?? I'm live in lai chi kok
  • It is funny that there is a sign on no feeding monkey and fine, there are still a lot of people feeding them all kind of funny food.
  • A beautiful park and we loved watching the monkeys
