We came here on a sunny day to enjoy the walks. We were not impressed by the "farm" that felt more like an improvised zoo. The bus trip to the top allowed some magnificent views. However, we were passed over when quueing for the trip back for no obvious reason other than not speaking the language. But we did enjoy... More

I'm so glad I took the time to visit Kadoorie Farm on my latest trip to HK. An easy bus trip from Kam Sheung Road MTR, passing through local villages on the way. You'll need to book a ticket on the shuttle bus on arrival as they assign a time, I arrived just after opening at 9.30 and had to... More

Went out there on a clear sunny day. Thought it was just a garden with organic farming and animals but to my surprise one can also hike beyond the gardens. The garden itself was quite informative of organic farming techniques especially for a land scarce city like HK. As I reached there about 1pm I didn't have much time to... More

Having been to Hong Kong many times this was something we'd never done. We took the MTR and then bus to the entrance and found that as over 60's we gained free entrance. We bought the $5 bus ticket each good to get on and off as often as you wished and took the bus to the highest point, almost... More

I can't believed that having worked and lived in HK for many years, this is the first time I came to this great place ! There is so much to do and see - whether it's lone hiker or group of friends or with families! People with kids should certainly bring them to this place which is a mini zoo... More

If you bring kids and want to enjoy a little bit hiking fun without exhausting your little ones too much, here you are. Cheap shuttle buses go up the hill at regular intervals. You can stop at designated spots, linger around and then get on another one to go further. I love the several gardens here. View of 600+ meters... More

I caught the MTR and then a bus to get to this location. I enjoyed my time here...although I got ate up by mosquitos. I rode the shuttle to the top and hiked my way down i spent over 3hrs here. Beautiful gardens and views. Animals were nice to see. Orchid area was disappointing since they weren't in bloom. There... More

A farm with long history. Initially established by Kandoorie brothers to help poor local farmers. Now open for kids and adults: orchid garden, fruits trees, lots of local widelife. It also provide a shelter and home for many abandoned or hurt animals. Provide education to next generation how to take care our nature. Notice boards at farm entrance tells you... More

We visited this farm with our 2 year old. It is situated on the side of steep hill so we were very grateful for the mini bus service to the top! I was delighted to see the parrots and birds of prey! Their enclosures are exceptionally well though out and spacious. We will definitely be back!

This is a terrific place and lovely escape from the city. Great place to go with or without children as there are lots of things to see and do. There are marked trails and hikes and lots of animals to see particularly in the lower farm area. It is a super hike up to the upper farm area but if... More
