    Kadoorie is a highly respected organisation that helps educate the public on important areas of nature conservation, wildlife rescue and rehabilitation as well as sustainable living and use of the land. They operate this large family-friendly attraction that includes sustainable farming and research, wild animal rescue centre and large scale gardens and walking trails located on the slope of Tai Mo Shan. It is directly along Lam Kam Road and accessible from Yuen Long in the west and Tai Po in the eat by way of bus 64K which runs regularly in both directions throughout the day.

    Opening hours are 9.30pm to 5pm daily and entry fee HK$50 per adult and HK$35 per child aged 4-11. There is shuttle service to the upper section of the Kadoorie farm HK$30 per adult, HK$15 per child with regular service schedule for those interested in starting at the top and walking downward. Entry and shuttle tickets are purchased at the ticket office upon arrival.

    Throughout the grounds, there are animal enclosures, many being rescued or orphaned animals including several important local species including muntjac (barking) deer and leopard cats along with raptor birds, parrots, aquatic animals and reptiles that are unable to survive in the wild and as such have become permanent residents and animal ambassadors. Animal enclosures have information about each animal, its name, age and how it came to become a Kadoorie resident.

    You will also find a Farm Shop, many planted garden areas, walking paths alongside forested streams and lots of tranquil places to grab a seat, listen to the birds and just enjoy being in nature. Near the entrance there is a cafe, now called Eat Well, that served up vegetarian dishes and some drinks at affordable prices. There are several public toilets throughout Kadoorie as well.

    Note: The Kadoorie Farm and Botanic Garden website is useful. You can learn what to expect there and also find a downloadable map that is worth a brief study and download onto your mobile phone to help you navigate your way around during your visit.

    I have been to the University twice for study purposes and think it makes for a lovely sight overlooking the harbour from the buildings, and the way the architecture is integrated into the rocky landscape of HK makes a wondrous sight. A lot of the buildings are freely accessible and it can be exciting to explore the little exhibits and pathways they have. Unfortunately none of this is marked particularly well and were it not for having extensively looked it up beforehand I definitely would have got lost and not made my meeting on the days I went. Lots of construction work meant having to navigate into buildings just to get to higher floors, then leaving on random levels due to the nature of the campus meaning that that is where the main floor is. If you are just exploring and have time though, feel free to wander around wherever you please particularly if a prospective student. The architecture still holds remnants of British rule and is a very interesting blend of modern and old.

    But never again will we ever book for Noah's Ark Hotel. Although service was good and they were helpful to book and call taxi going to airport and Disneyland.
    It was inconveniently burdensome for families with multiple kids(transportation, location, office hours).
    All taxis are not aloud in the area and you have to walk to the taxi stand. Imagine if you have 3 small kids 1 infant with big luggages.
    I suggest to plan the transporation ahead esp going to Noah , Disneyland and airport.

    Now that tourists are beginning to return to Hong Kong, an interesting place you can go for a bit of unique souvenir shopping is Glocal Mahjong on the 4/F, Block A at PMQ. This is a worthy local enterprise which aims to promote mahjong as a healthy, creative and social activity that can be enjoyed as not only the classic game but as a product brand as well.

    As such, at the shop you will find mahjong boards, tiles as well as various household items, gifts and other mahjong themed products. In short, this is a good option for a local souvenir or gift to take back to friends or family after upcoming visits to Hong Kong. There is a website where you can browse their product line and learn more about the proprietor and shop at PMQ. You can order from them online or hop over to their place PMQ.

    The Yan Tun Kong Study Hall is stop 8 on the Ping Shan Heritage Trail in the Yuen Long District. It is located along one of the small lanes east of the main trail through a heavily inhabited area just north of the Tang Ancestral Hall (stop 7). Surrounded by residencies, this is an interesting but somewhat difficult attraction to find so do make sure to have the self-walk trail map with you as street signage is not particular helpful until you arrive at the entrance of the study hall. Opening hours are 9am to 1pm and 2pm to 5pm daily (closed on Tuesdays).

    Historically, this Declared Monument building (2009) served as a traditional ancestral hall, a venue for teaching and examination preparations. Today, it continues to host seasonal festivities and clan gatherings. What you will see here is rather similar to that of the impressive Yu Kiu and Tang Ancestral Halls but on a noticeably smaller scale.

    The study hall is a two-hall structure with only one open courtyard. The grey bricked facade is decorated with nice murals and ridge motifs. Within, there are lovely carved tuofeng (camel humps) motifs upon the wooden beams holding up the study hall roofs. There is a beautiful ancestral altar as well as information panels describing the restoration efforts that brought the building back to its original splendour in 2009.

    Overall, well worth a few minutes to make sure you find and see the Yan Tun Kong Study Hall. With a trail map, it isn't too difficult to find your way there. Afterwards, return to the main trail and continue onwards towards the Old Well (stop 8) and Yeung Hau Temple (stop 9) just a few minutes away on foot.
