Beautiful, quiet serene place located in the middle of the city. Small zoo with many exhibits. Great way to relax from shopping and sight seeing.

small but nice

I spent a nice Sunday afternoon at the zoo and botanical gardens up on the hill. It's a small space, but very nice and quiet and free - a nice get away from the busy city.

I liked everything about the sights in Hong Kong - in addition to the beauty, the city is exceptionally clean.

We stumbled upon this and it was a pleasant way to spend an afternoon. The gibbons were entertaining as ever and was lucky enough to catch a glimpse of the Bornean orangutan. There are other small monkeys and plenty of interesting birds, but don't confuse this place for a zoo. Various plants, ferns and herbs if that's your thing, all... More

Such an unexpected gem in the middle of the city of concrete. There is a few open spaces to enjoy with fountains and snack kiosks offering drinks and food. There is the massive net encased bird aviary with thousands of birds and little mammals enclosed in it. Behind the aviary is the city view which is very strange while inside... More

It's a nice stroll and walking around. Just seeing different types of monkeys is the major thing there wz only very few other animals. If u have time do it.

This zoo is a nice place to stroll around in if you like zoos and parks and it's conveniently located right in town. I especially liked seeing the primates and birds. The trees are awesome!

A great way to spend a morning or afternoon. The Park is very structured & manufactured but has a quirky charm about it, built on the side of an amazingly steep piece of land,it is a marvel in it's own right. The Zoo has a great collection of primates that will keep kids entertained for ages. The walk through bird... More

We spent 1-2 hours on a beautiful day at these gardens and there was plenty to keep us entertained. The gardens themselves are beautiful and well maintained, and easily accessible from central station. The many of the birds were a first for us - the Flamingos (USA), Toucans, Cranes etc etc. The monkeys were hugely entertaining for the kids &... More

So there are not many free zoos around so that was a welcome surprise. This is by no means a large zoo, but it does have some nice animals. I did feel though that there actual living conditions were not of an acceptable quality, which made me feel bad for them. Additionally, it surprised me how people were yelling at... More

Do not put it high up on your bucket list. It is a small zoo with limited animals. However, if you have a lot of time in Hong Kong, it is an enjoyable and relaxing respite during your hectic trip to Hong Kong. First, get off MTR island line at Admirality stop and follow the signs, or the double decker... More

Staying in Central

Neighborhood Profile
Central
When people think of Hong Kong, most imagine movies with famous skyscrapers dominating the skyline. The area widely known as Central is the major financial hub and entertainment district, which truly lives up to the saying, “work hard, play hard.” Bars stay open late into the night and there just happens to be a street party every weekend. Although everything seems to be operating at lightning speed, Central is full of quiet, hidden gems. Nestled between office towers are wet markets and some of the city’s oldest restaurants dating back to the 1960s. Feeling a bit overwhelmed? Retreat from the crowds by exploring beautifully restored historical buildings and even a green oasis of botanical gardens.
