If you are visiting Hong Kong take some time to visit this place. Is perfect for all ages and if you are with young children they will love it. It is free.

The visit to the Hong Kong Zoo was as I had imagined by the reading material I had on the Zoo, small and intimate, Monkeys and Birds being the main attractions. The central Fountain was a magnificent sight, the grounds well manicured and pathways clean enough to eat your food off. All in all a quiet and enjoyable venture -... More

I didn't have time for the zoo, but the botanical gardens are huge and above all FREE. Great place to just have a bit of rest and feel like you are no longer in the city. Maybe I missed them but I didn't see anywhere yo buy food/water so at least pack some water you will need it. Oh and... More

Hong Kong park is huge and peaceful , it's a nice escape from the bustling city below. The park contains beautiful flowers and plants but also has a small zoo area . Another feature is a huge walk through bird aviary, one of the largest in Asia. The park is very popular and on weekends gets quite busy, you may... More

This was the last thing we saw whilst in Hong Kong. We had an hour to spare so decided to go for a walk through the gardens, it was a nice change of pace from the rest of Hong Kong. The gardens are not overall that big however well worth a look. I was a bit shocked at the small... More

If you're looking for a change from the hustle and bustle of HK, then this is a pleasant diversion. It is well kept, there aren't a huge number of animals but they seem in sized enclosures and quite active. I don't agree with some other reviewers who say the enclosures are small. The gardens are very well kept and the... More

It is located not far way from the station of Peak Tram and Hong Kong Park. The Hong Kong Zoological and Botanical Gardens is a classic (not old at all) park, it seems that you were in Hong Kong 30 years old. I am surprised to find the keeping of so many wild animals (About 300 birds, 70 mammals and... More

My friend and I stumbled across this park, and we loved it! A beautiful, calm little escape from the busy, noisy city, but still really central and accessible. It's not massive, but a good selection of small animals, birds and reptiles. My friend and I really enjoyed our time there, and I imagine it would be great with kids for... More

We took the train to Central and the proceeded to the mid level escalators. We made away to the very top and then walked across to the gardens. It had been raining all day and the light mist only added to the enjoyment of walking. Walking to the gardens also allows you to see the varios buildings on the side... More
