Easy to walk, a great day out
May 2021 • Couples
A great day out and it is not too difficult to get to from central as there is a direct bus to get to the wetland park.

The park is nicely done and the entrance fee is reasonable. Unfortunately there are a lot of big ants now and the park will not treat it. Make sure u bring an insect repellant with you. Food here is OK but do bring your own food or drinks.

The hides is lovely. It is really a brilliant hiding place to cool yourself down and take pictures of birds. I can sit in the hides for ages provided there are no swarms of ants.

Would definitely recommend.

Family friend wetlands park with good birdwatching opportunities
Mar 2021
The Hong Kong Wetlands is ecotourism attraction northeast of Yuen Long in the New Territories. It includes an indoor education centre with exhibition halls, displays and informative learning opportunities as well as a 61 hectare wetland reserve for birdwatching and spending time outdoors. It is a good place for families to spend a few hours outdoors especially when the weather is nice.

Opening hours are 10am to 5pm daily (closed on Tuesdays). Entry fee is $HK30 per adult (free for children). There are public toilets, eatery, gift shop in the main centre. Presently, visitors are required to register with the Leave Home Safe mobile app. to enter and spend time in the Park.

The indoor exhibition area at the HK Wetlands is fun for children. There are a handful of zones and education areas of focus. Some displays are interesting and a good way to entertain the little ones, especially if visiting on a hot or rainy sunny day.

However, the main reason most visit the Wetlands is to spend time in the outdoor reserve area which is nicly laid out around natural water sources which serve as a wetlands for migratory birds, similar to the nearby WWF Mai Po Reserve just north of here.

You'll find a handful of bird hides some with multiple levels where you can watch for migratory birds. Expect to see lots of egrets, heron, sandpipers and the likes. During winter months, you'll likely see black-faced spoonbills and with a keen eye, there are a fair number kingfishers. Unfortunately, the hides are often overrun by families with loud and active children. This is unfortunate but a reality with having bird hides in a family-friendly wetland parks. For more serious birdwatchers, you may prefer to book a permit and tour into the Mai Po Reserve with the WWF instead.

In addition to the bird hides there are wooden bridges, mangrove boardwalks, artificial streams and butterfly gardens to enjoy as well. Keep your eyes open for mudskippers, fiddler crabs, turtles as well as dragonflies and butterflies. During our recent visit we spotted a common Changeable Lizard with a bright orange head in the tall grasses near the Fishpond Hide.

Note: Visit the Hong Kong Wetlands website to learn more about this ecotourism park. This is a comprehensive site with plenty of general information and maps you can print and use while exploring the outdoor reserves.

Note: To visit the Hong Kong Wetlands using public transportation, you can use light rail circular lines (705 or 706) from the Tin Sui Wai MTR Station. The park is a 6-7 minute walk from the Wetlands Park or Tin Sau stops. Direction signs are easier to follow from the Wetland Park exit.

Average Park in Hong Kong
Jun 2020
This place isn't your typical Hong Kong excursion and I consider as a tertiary site to visit and only when all other excursions have been exhausted.

Getting to the place is easy enough, there is a MTR and light rail that services the Wetland Park. The entrance fee is 30HKD and the place can be covered between 1.5-2 hours (it isn't really large).

The park has a nice boardwalk around the mangroves and also 2-3 bird watching structures that look over into the Deep Bay harbor that separates Hong Kong and Shenzhen.

For photo enthusiasts it's a dream come true, the location is good for wildlife photographers who like birds and insects. Would recommend to make your way here during weekdays as the number of people during weekends and holidays does spook the birds away.

Overall average experience and it's really another side of Hong Kong and something that can be done in a lower priority compared to other activities (i.e. hiking).

Nice educational outdoor experience
May 2019 • Solo
This is a very well cared for park that has a lot of education exhibits. There are numbers of school children at times, but it's great to see them getting an education on the outdoors. Foreigners should be sure to have Hong Kong dollars, as they don't accept credit cards or foreign currency.

An oasis thats easy to get too
Apr 2019 • Solo
This wetland park has changed so much since i was here 12+ years ago. While there is very little bird life to be seen there are still many bird hides to go into. I find the attraction with this place, just being out side away from the hustle and bustle and experience the nature of the wetlands. There boardwalks and paths are in fantastic condition, easy to navigate, able to be walked by all types of fitness. There is an interpretive centre, cheap restaurant and clean toilets available. All this easily accessed by using public transport. A must to visit when in Hong Kong

From Tin Shui Wai MTR station
Apr 2019 • Couples
I visited today and it got rather hot by noon. I saw only a few birds but I am sure there are good days and bad days. The park is a nice place to enjoy walking anyway.

Some advice for those planning to use public transportation. From Tin Shui Wai MTR station take the E1 exit, which will lead you downstairs to the circular light rail platform. Take light rail no. 705. Before boarding tap your transportation card at one of the orange 'enter' boxes near the escalator/platform. After getting off, tap your card on the green 'exit' box.

You may get off at Wetland Park stop or one stop before called "Tin Sau." From Tin Sau stop it is just a short walk through the tunnel.

The park ticket office only accepts cash.

To return to Tin Shui Wai, cross to the other side of the platform, which is served by light rail no. 706.

Unique landscape and biodiversity
Feb 2019 • Family
Around half an hour's drive from the town, Hong Kong Wetland Park is a feast for the nature lovers. The parking and entry fee is very much cheaper than that of theme parks like Disneyland.

The reward, if you ask me, is at least ten times better. Visitors are treated to incredible visions of nature, especially at the three bird hides (Riverside Hide, Fishpond Hide, and Mudflat Hide) in the Wetland Reserve. You don't even have to bring your binoculars; it is well equipped and you're welcome to use them free of charge. Don't be shy to ask the field guide to show you the birds.

With so many to see, our family spent a whole day till 5 pm (the closing time).

Hong Kong's backyard
Jan 2019 • Family
This is one of the few options to escape the bust and crowd of Hong Kong. This vast wetland has a crocodile house, a nicely maintained pathway as well as some bird-seeing cottages. Well worth the 30 HKD admission. Bus 967 conveniently connects Wetland Park with Central and Admiralty.

Stopped from using the toilet for my 4 year old
Jan 2019 • Family
We just passed the exit barrier at 5pm. My young son told me he urgently need to use the loo.
I saw the toilet just back inside the exit barrier, but the security guard refused to let me back in as my wife had my tickets who was further outside.

I know my son and insisted as I wanted to prevent an accident. Finally she relented and we could get to use the toilet... just in time.

On the way out, the supervisor yelled at me "RULES ARE THE RULES".... I was naturally shocked and challenged him on his behaviour. He claimed he was speaking softly to the Securtiy colleague in English... Sorry guys... I don't buy this...

Yes I was critical of his behaviour as he was acting completely out of line. I constantly repeated rules are just rules and asked for understanding for my son's toilet emergency. Yet he continued to shout at me...

What a bitter ending to a lovely park experience.

Lovely park.... disgusting service....
