The bird garden has been nicely landscaped in a traditional classic Chinese style and is interesting to walk through if you are nearby visiting the much better neighbouring flower market - however, enter with caution, the area has for a long been been renowned for being at the centre of illegal sales of rare birds. This place tends to be... More

This is a place where birds are in cages. Some of them in very small and/ or crowded cages. If you want to see birds flying around, go to the free walk through aviary in Hong Kong park. However, if you want to see ornamental bird cages and sacks of live grasshoppers and worms for bird food, this is the... More

Understandable, this is a bird market and not an aviary but still it was sad to see some of the birds cramped in small cages. Still, an interesting sight with a variety of feathery creatures and their foods (including bags with live locust). Wish it would be a little more bird friendly though.

Where else? This was fascinating and the birds sadly in small cages but obviously prized. Clearly not enough meat on them for eating! Old men were tolerant of tourists gazing at them.

Seeing so many birds in such tiny spaces is appalling. Each one had at most a small decorative cage as its home while many shared only slightly bigger cages with up to dozens of other birds. Some were in narrow boxes barely taller than themselves. Very few were able to shelter themselves from sunlight. I saw many birds with overgrown... More

I'm a bird owner and this appealed to me. I took Uber taxi from my hotel. It was a 10 minute ride. The vendors for all things "birdy" are there. The caged birds are in the thousands and while I'm not a fan of small cages, all of the birds appeared well cared for, clean cages and plenty of food,... More

Its now called the bird garden, not the bird market, and its at the end of the flower market street. Fun to see all the birds of owners socializing as well as see some exotic varieties!

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.
