Really enjoyed the entire experience but most particularly the zoo. Loved the birds and monkeys. It's a highlight of my trip in Hong Kong for sure

Be sure to ride the longest escalator in the world and then wind your way down to the zoo. There you will see some new animals and experience the cleanest and healthiest zoo I have been to. Small, but very sweet.

i recommend going to the central multi level staircase, go all the way to the end. There will be a sign showing you the way to a church and the hongkong zoological and Botanical gardens. Please do wear comfortable shoes as the slopes are amazing. It goes upwards and downwards, imagine walking this everyday for hongkongers.. No wonder they are... More

This seemed to me to be more of a nice green park with some animal enclosures than a traditional zoological and botanical garden. Located in two sections either side of Albany Road, each accessible via a pedestrian tunnel, this garden raises many birds, mammals and reptiles and showcases over 1000 species of plants. There is also a popular fountain and... More

Lovely peaceful walk through well kept walkways and gardens. A large display of various monkeys on one side, then through a subway to the other side with a massive fountain where you can sit down and relax and watch the birds and skyline. More birds in an aviary, but the aviary in nearby Hong Kong park is better. Located close... More

Make sure you go to see this free magnificent zoo and gardens. It's quite near the base of the Peak Tram, and amazingly quiet. Monkeys and exotic birds are abundant, but skip the reptiles.

A lovely relaxing place to sit when it starts to get dark, the park is lit with low lighting which makes it a lovely setting and romantic. Easiest way to get the is from the mid level escalators, a 5-10 min walk from the top escalator which will save the hard up hill walk. It is sign posted as well.... More

In the centre of the city and easily by-passed is the HK Zoological gardens - this is more gardens than zoo. As someone not very keen on zoos this one does work. Expect well presented cages with social monkeys and a few other exhibits but the main reason people come here is the Park and the gardens. A wonderful place... More

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.
