My family and I visited the Zoo on a cool windy day in December. As we arrived we thought the zoo had been disbanded as all the cages seemed empty. But after wandering around we did see some animals, though most appeared comatose. A helpful keeper tried to inject some life into the place by spraying the gibbons with water... More

An unusually quiet corner of Hong Kong. A small collection of more unusual animals and birds in a botanical garden with some interesting plants and trees. Small orchid house with good plants.

A lovely green space to wander away from the busy city. It's a bit of a hike up the many steps but worth the effort. Lots of bird species, a few money and the wonderful orang a tangs. Reptiles enclosure was disappointing. As a zoo, not impressive at all, as botanical garden, lovely but complete with waterfall and City view... More

This has always been one of my most favourite finds on Hong Kong Island, especially as most of the locals don't even know about it. Sad in some ways about the animals being in cages, but it is just such a relaxing experience here, it is worth taking a few hours out of your trip to have a look.

Struggle up the hill for an enjoyable Sunday Morning stroll. But don't expect too much and you will not be disappointed. The PR is extravagant to the point t that you wonder if they ever visited the zoo. Note that the "Reptile House" houses one giant tortoise and nothing else.

We went there after going on the peak tram, bit of a steep walk up the hill but worth it for a free attraction beautiful gardens and monkeys, lots of different birds to see. Would definitely go and have a look after the peak tram.

A free zoo and botanic garden in Hong Kong! While the zoo is small, it is full of interesting animals - lots of apes. There are several large cages full of exotic birds from around the world. The gardens are more like walking through a sub-tropical forest. The signage is good and most informative. A 20/25 minute walk from the... More

My wife and I visited the gardens during our recent visit to Hong Kong. Firstly let me say that the gardens are impeccably maintained but they are very difficult to find, street signage is at best poor and in some cases none existent. Access for disabled persons is almost impossible, we tried but couldn't find a suitable access point. Just... More

The Hong Kong Zoological and Botanical Gardens is a great place for people of all ages. Although it is crowded, but that is how Hong Kong is, but it can expand your knowledge on different species of animals. Amazing place to kill time!

I was originally born in Hong Kong, over 60 years ago and the Zoological and Botanical Gardens was my playground for many years when I was growing up. Back in those years, we have a few cages of monkeys, sun bears and flamingos. It has been nearly 15 years since my last visit and this time I happened to be... More
