“free zoo”(15 reviews)
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.

Located in the steep hills of Hong Kong Island this is a lovely escape from the busy streets of HK. Inside the park is some lovely green areas to walk through with monkey, turtle and bird enclosures to look at.

This is the oldest park in Hong Kong. It also houses the city's only zoo. While the central fountain gives a nice overview of Hong Kong skyline, the extensive collection of flora and fauna adds colour to this quiet urban greenery. It is right opposite...More

This is a very well taken care of garden. The added attraction is the few primates cared for here! Many of the animal displays were undergoing renovation, however the orangutan and smaller monkey enclosures were a treat to observe. The meerkat display needed some improvement,...More

After a walk, we arrived at this cool place, beautiful walks around the shaded paths, very quite and peaceful in such a busy city. Monkeys, meerkats, and birds, larger primates too. There is a small shop for refreshments, prices a bit steep, but with all...More

The trees and herbs were well labelled. The walk up from the harbour is steep, we were glad of the water we had taken with us. Animal-cages seemed too small. Bird cages were a it better. Lovely views

This place is has beautiful gardens, it is large and you will easily kill a few hours walking around. You certainly need to be able bodied to get around without assistance. The gardens and the Pandas were the highlight for me. Loved it and a...More

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
