The bird garden is about it 10 minute walk from the metro. I walked through the flower district which was very appealing. You will know you are close when you start to hear happy cheeping to your left. There were not many vendors in the bird garden. The birds seemed very happy and well cared for. Granted, many were in... More

I bought a copy of the Lonely Planet Guide to Hong Kong and we spent a very interesting couple of hours taking a walk through Bird Garden and the markets after. It was lovely to see some of the older residents with their caged birds, but surprising to see so many small birds in small cages on sale. The grasshoppers... More

I was very intrigued, an area exclusively where you can buy bird cages, bird food (live bait like worms), and a variety of birds for sale a view! A place to see like no other for a cultural experience.

If you're going to be in the Mong Kok area anyway, then do drop in on the garden just to see the vareity of birds and people, but this is not a site that is worthy of a dedicated trip.

Some may not like the 'Bird Garden' or 'Bird Market' in Kowloon's Yuen Po Street as there are lots of caged birds some of which appear to be in poor conditions and less than happy. It can also be a bit smelly but that goes for many places in Asia and to me is all a key part of a... More

There were koads of birds (both free and caged), proud owners displaying their birds and taking them for "walks", you can see some different sights.....live grasshoppers (popcorn for birds apparently! ), tropical birds, fancy cages, not so fancy cages, mosiacs and take as many photos as you like. I spent about 40 mins here and it was quite different to... More

This has to be the saddest place i have ever been too. Looking at those beautiful birds locked in cages had me in tears. I looked straight into the eyes of the most beautiful Toucan who was locked in a cage of less than a meter sq. The Hong Kong authorities need to close this place down and let all... More

Very dim and hardly any actual birds there. It was mostly people selling cages and fake birds. If you're in the area it's worth walking through, otherwise don't bother.

The bird garden is just a small stretch at the end of flower market. However, you get to see different birds. But the feeling of the place is gloomy. No buyers for a long time I guess.
