Established in 1956, by the late Lord Horace Kadoorie as a base for the Kadoorie Agricultural Aid Association near Lam Tsuen, Tai Po, is one of Hong Kong's little known jewels.

There is a flea market selling local farm goods, you may buy the fresh food at the end of the trip. The hilly environment is nice and relaxing. There is a shuttle bus (15 mins) for bringing you uphill. I enjoyed walking down the hill and take many photos.There is a lotus planting garden with good setting.

Whilst a bit of a hike to reach the premises, the view from the top (620 metres, 1860 feet) is ample reward for efforts expended. The old RHKAF airstrip is visible as is Mainland China. Take your time to thoroughly enjoy the viewing. The botanical species present are excellent.

Sorry, there was no bottled water for sale, just tea and other drinks.The garden was full of school children on a field trip but the birds were to be found. The... More

Heavy headed and need a light day with the kids, this'll be the place. Luka and Ryan Williams loved it. Really? No I am lying they were bored as hell but we all had a healthy and easy day out, kids too.
