Beautiful, quiet serene place located in the middle of the city. Small zoo with many exhibits. Great way to relax from shopping and sight seeing.

This garden with its zoo is a very nice thing to pass trough. It’s free and the animals seem to be treated well (even though in captivity).

Unexpectedly beautiful. The plants and flowers are extraordinary. We went there and unfortunately, it started to rain but everything is so peaceful and serene.

This place is a hidden gem, worth visiting for 2-3 hours, strolling around the zoo and gardens. It is not a typical or large zoo but it is free entrance to all and sundry. Good for a relaxing stroll.

Central
When people think of Hong Kong, most imagine movies
with famous skyscrapers dominating the skyline. The
area widely known as Central is the major financial
hub and entertainment district, which truly lives up
to the saying, “work hard, play hard.” Bars stay open
late into the night and there just happens to be a
street party every weekend. Although everything seems
to be operating at lightning speed, Central is full of

I am sorry to tell you it is not a real zoo as you would expect. however, it is free so you could still go there to have a look. It won't be too interesting in my mind.

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... More

There are no Pandas in the HK Zoo (here you placed your question); at Ocean Park they have giant and red pandas and shows that they get fed (the red ones).
