Living nearby I decided I should try out the wetland park to see if worth recommending when friends visit.
It was a hot Monday, but I enjoyed the walk along flat paths with places to sit and enjoy the scenery.
I learned about local bugs...More
It’s a very peaceful place. I went there on a week day and there were very few tourists (less than 5 groups of visitors) in the park. One might get bored if they don’t know what to pay attention to or what to look for....More
I visited the Hong Kong Wetland Park because I enjoy slow easy hikes in areas which are not overcrowded. The park provides a tranquil relief from bustling city life in Hong Kong. I saw birds, butterflies and dragonflies while I was there. Not exactly teeming...More

As someone who has never done any birdwatching before, Mai Po would probably require a good deal of research and a local guide, and possibly a special permit obtained from certain gov't dept. I would not consider going through all this work unless I'm being invited.
