Kadoorie farm and botanical gardens may not be very well known to the tourists but it is a hidden treasure in Hong Kong. Situated in the New Territories, this is a botanical garden and an animal sanctuary built by the Kadoorie brothers. Just less than half an hour from Tai Po market station, this place boasts of beautiful flowers, trees... More

The great thing about Kadoorie Farm and Botanical Gardens is that it serves different purpose, it is a farm, botanical gardens, mini zoo as well as hiking path. About an hour and a half traffic from city center, here you are the great escape to nature. Here you can enjoy an afternoon or best a whole day surrounding you with... More

If you like nature, you will love this place. Very well maintained, manicured gardens and greenhouses housing exotic, rare species of flora. Great for kids day out in Hong Kong

I went there to watch butterflies as part of a very large group last Sunday morning and that was my first visiit to the farm and botanical garden. It is a very large and well organised place and I was amazed to see a few flying common birdwings protected by local law a few times during the visit. The place... More

Kadoorie isn't for everyone but if you have interests in agriculture, history, plants, and local fauna, it's quite special. Kadoorie is named after two Jewish brothers who founded this farm to show that the steep mountains in Hong Kong can and used to be farmed. They proved their point. From the Farm, you can still see tea terraces from the... More

This place is actually very large, but you have to be willing to walk quite a bit to discover everything! Ranging from animals to exhibitions to forests (woods), there is something for everybody here! It is a very good place to relax and get away from the busy Hong Kong urban life, and just to chillax - much needed for... More

I'm travelling in HK by myself for a conference and had a free day, so decided to go to this Botanical Garden. Compared with the craziness of the busy Kowloon district, this place was so quiet. It was nice to get away and have some peace, but for me the problem was too much peace...There were very few tourists at... More

Yes, educational, beautiful but a lot of walking both for lowlands and highlands and can't be done in a day.... Best thing to happen to Hong Kong!!! Thank you to the Kadoorie Family!

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. Nine kilometres of road wind their way up around organic farming terraces, botanic gardens and native forest to the summit of the mountain, Kwun Yum Shan, at over 1800ft... More

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.
