This is a nice detour from the hustle and bustle of the large city and is very relaxing. There is a nice little area where you can get some nice tasty and or healthy snacks, tea, or coffee. The hikes up the hill is worth it as well.

This is a great place to slip away to if you are tired of the hustle and bustle of Hong Kong. Shake off the journey there with a quick brew in the coffee shop at the bottom of the hill. They also offer canteen style snacks (organic and veggie as I recall) which were pretty tasty. Very friendly service and... More

This is a place which is not highlighted as a HK tourist attraction but it is a place one should definitely visit as its just beautiful. Its nice to get away from the concrete and glass jungle of Hong kong and into the lap of mother nature. The vegetarian restaurant at the entrance of the park is excellent. Recommend to... More

The grounds of these gardens are absolutely spectacular. I could have spent all day enjoying the beautiful scenery that the owners clearly put a lot of effort into maintaining. They also have a bus to take people around which is useful if your feet get tired from walking (the route can be quite steep). I did feel let down by... More

It's a little hard to get to, but well worth the trip. Many plants and exhibits showing Hong Kong's microclimates.

I love Kadoorie farm-- a beautifully maintained Botanic garden and working farm with stunning hiking trails. A great place to take kids on the weekend to learn about plants and animals, and for anyone else who enjoys the outdoors for miles of hiking trails winding through fruit orchards, orchids among other plants native to HK and Guangdong. Don't miss out... More

It's taken 7 visits to Hong Kong before I discovered this gem. Like most things, it is accessible by public transport, although it's a bit of a trek to get there. It's well worth it though, particularly if you like hiking because there are some challenging walks towards the summit of the farm which are rewarded by some spectacular views.... More

A good break from the crowds in malls...if you spend more than 5 days in HK or if it's not your first trip to HK and you have already visited the usual tourist spots like The Peak, Ngong Ping etc. The farm is located on the northern slopes of one of HK's highest mountains, Tai Mo Shan. There is a... More

I have not been there for some 25+ years! but it still keeps me refreshing! green! energetic! lively! and difference with other farms or gardens. The geographical location offers the farm like a watershed from Taipo to Yuen Long, also a valley tip to carry strong difference of weather, fog, and mist in hot summer, and you cannot find elsewhere...
