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.

We enjoyed walking around this zoo. It was small but very clean. The animals looked very healthy and well taken cared for. My favorite was the de brazza monkey. It was chubby and black and looked like it had a white beard. Everytime i try to take a photo, it turned its back -camera shy. There was also a small... More

The Botanic Gardens are very nice and a good place to get away from the crowds and high density living in Hong Kong. However the birds and animals in the zoo portion of the gardens are housed in very cruel enclosures. They are very small with little or no natural vegetation or water. It looked to me that the animals... More

For not charging any admission, this park is really nice! It's great for an afternoon walk. You can get free wi fi as well :)

Loved seeing all the animals and hearing the different noises the frogs and monkeys made to each other. Peaceful gardens with plenty to see, spent a couple of hours just wandering round in the sun.

The aviary is amazing, one of my favourite places in Hong Kong. I mostly came for the botanical gardens, but the birds were really amazing

If you find yourself in the heart of Hong Kong and want a break away from the traffic, the crowded streets and the massive concrete and glass towers, then swing by the Hong Kong Zoological and Botanical Gardens. It is a fairly small, but very idyllic and serene attraction that offers a much needed pause away from the hustle and... More

Fantastic for a break from the hustle and bustle of the city. We loved seeing the playful monkeys and chimps in this park and enjoyed being able to stroll in the shade. A beautiful spot!

For not charging any admission, this park is really nice! It's great for an afternoon walk. Lots of different monkeys and birds. Not a must-see if you are only in HK for a short visit, but a great escape from the hustle and bustle without going very far.

The Hong Kong zoological and botanic gardens is a great spot to go if you want to relax, see animals ( monkeys, turtles, birds) and beautiful flowers and trees! It's a green paradise in between the skyscrapers and the noisy all day life.

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

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.
