We decided to visit with two small people and travelled by taxi to the lower entrance. We managed to negotiate the steps and hills, but I concur with an earlier reviewer- it would definitely be better to start at the top if you have little...More
We came here with our kindergarten kids. It was definitely worth the visit in terms of nature and birds/monkeys to see for the children. Children had a good time running around in the garden and some animals to see on the way.
Especially if you have kids, it is much better to start at the top of the hill and work down. Not very stroller friendly at all, so keep in mind there are steep hills. But it is a nice place with a playground, nice animal...More
The gardens are good; and the signs on the trees are excellent; informative and interesting. There is also something nice about being in such a crowded city and having some relatively quiet green space
The zoo is free; and there are lemurs and smaller monkeys...More
Modest gardens above the governor’s residence, with partial views through buildings towards the harbour and up to Victoria peak. It comes in two sections connected by a pedestrian subway: the Old Garden featuring the large fountain terrace garden, aviaries, green house and children’s playground and...More
I came down from Victoria Peak on the Peak Tram and got off at Kennedy Rd Station. From there it was a short walk. It was a calm place (free) and children would like it but if you don't like seeing birds or monkeys in...More
This is a lovely park to wander around and escape the madness of Hong Kong central! The gardens are well kept and very interesting. The fountain is lovely and the statue of King George is a nice little reminder of Hong Kong’s colonial history.
Came here the day I came home. It is a nice bit of peace away from the crowds and the gardens are nice. Did not like the zoo. Cages seemed too small for many of the animals housed in them. The primates looked bored and...More
Lovely little park for a short stroll and a bit of tranquillity. The zoo part is very small, but some interesting things to look at, and animals seemed happy and healthy. Much damage from the recent typhoon, so some areas were closed. Didn't cost anything,...More
Nice place to wander and look at the animals, relax by the fountain, and enjoy some green space.
Toilets were very clean too.
Kids will enjoy looking at the animals.
There's only a tiny kiosk so you may want to bring your own water and...More

No fee. Not a big zoo. If going from Admiralty (MRT) up, up, up, for a heart and lung challenge, think twice! You had better be in shape and ready for a confusing and poorly marked walk up many, many steps, steep grades, through intersections with wild, dangerous road traffic. Doing this on a hot and steamy June day was our biggest mistake while in Hong Kong for four days.
Best way to go to Zoological and Botanical Gardens? (3 Replies)
We're planning to go to zoological and botanical gardens after going to the victoria peak. What is the best way to go there? My parents are seniors so I really have to consider them. And if you can also recommend good places near the area please do so! I will really appreciate your help!

Take the Peak Tram down to Lower Peak Tram Terminus. Walk over there, ~5 minutes but it is a little bit uphill.

Hi, Not sure what exactly you're asking for here but I'll do my best to give you my opinion. Maybe you just wanted people to weight in if your plan is good? Since you've already contacted a Dolphin Watching company, I'd wait for their reply. Or try another one as a comparison? There aren't that many fishing villages left in HK. The only one I know of it's a tourist hot spot called Tai O. That's the most authentic with stilt-houses. It's located in Lantau Island (south west from the...More
