    The Kadoorie Farm and Botanical Garden is located in the valley along Lam Kam Road between Tai Po and Yuen Long and is most easily accessible by way of bus route 64K. Opening hours are 9.30am to 5pm daily and entry fees are HK$40 (adults) and HK$20 (children aged 5-11).

    Note: The Kadoorie grounds are on the slope of a mountain. As such, you can purchase shuttle ticket (HK$10 per adult, HK$5 per child) and be driven to various drop off points from which you can walk back down to the entrance to the farm. Or take your time and walk upwards through the farm and garden grounds and take the shuttle back if you purchase ticket along with your entry fee.

    This organisation is dedicated to nature conservation, rescue and rehabilitation of native animals, some of which are endangered or rarely seen and education about sustainable living. Particularly impressive are the efforts towards rescued animals. There are numerous facilities spread around the grounds, where you can view leopard cats, muntjac (barking) deer, bats, raptors, interesting reptiles and other animals in respectable enclosures. There is often information provided about the animals including names and ages if interested.

    You will also find a lovely stream with surfaced walking paths and beautiful gardening and landscaping. This is a delightful area to walk and enjoy being in nature. Some benches and picnic spots can be found here and at other tranquil garden areas within Kadoorie as well.

    There is an area dedicated to sustainable farming examples and education. You'll find a farm shop and cafe called the Sun Garden Cafe near the entrance. There are public toilets in various locations within the kadoorie grounds. Note, best to print or download the Kadoorie map and layout before setting off to explore as you will quickly learn how large of an area is included. It can be a bit tricky finding particular enclosures if you don't know your way around.

    In the end, the location is a bit inconvenient of those in the city but the experience is rewarding for anyone who wants to spend 1/2 to 3/4 of a day in a valley countryside close to nature, especially a good option for those with children.

    From reading some previoius reviews, I wasn't too keen on visiting this place but a friend was, so we met there. Both families with 3 year olds. It is a bit shabby if you are not used to liufe in HK NT, but we are so it looked normal enough to us. Hard to get to without a car or taxi. We used taxi from yuen long yoho mall for about 70 HKD. You definitely need to guard against mosquitoes and if you dont like animal smells, maybe give it a miss. The animal area had different types of birds, includingh Ostrich and rabbits, goats, a couple of cows - definite overcrowding in the pea fowl and goals pens. There was horse riding (60 second small circuit for 2 tickets (40HKD)). OK for a toddler's first horsey experience but oitherwise no value. The bouncy castle is actually very large and good. You get 15 minutes there for 2 tickets. Overall, it is pricey (and bad value) for doing anything but you can spend a couple of hours there and maybe 160 HKD of activity tickets (only sold in multiple of 80 hkd) and do some animal feeding plus other activities and maybe feel it was an ok afternoon out. We wouldn't go again.

    Wow- who would have known there was this little gem in Hong Kong? Edible flowers and vegetables and fruit grow in abundance. At only $30.00 (Hong Kong) your entrance fee can be used to purchase produce which you can pick yourself.
    For only $150 (Hong Kong) you can make pizza with your friends and watch while it is cooked in the pizza oven outside. A great way to spend a day out with friends.
    Go to Fanling station and then take a taxi for $70.00 HK or get the minibus.

    Mapopo Community Farm (Wed & Sun, 2-6pm) is one of several eco-friendly gardens and farms that have sprung up around Hong Kong in recent years, providing opportunity for local residents to spend time away from the chaos of the city on weekends.

    In addition to being a retreat to more rural environs, Mapopo Community Farm provides general education on horticulture, agriculture and sustainable farming, important concepts often lost on the present generation, born and raised in ultra-modern and urban Hong Kong. In this regard, Mapopo is a respectable venture, providing a valuable service to the general community and people of Hong Kong.

    For Hong Kong visitors, on the other hand, Mapopo’s location is quite inconvenient being located at Ma Shi Po Village area east of Fanling, not the easiest place to find for those unfamiliar with the area. Further, almost all information for Mapopo is provided in Chinese and, as stated, opening hours for Mapopo are very limited.

    Better Options for Hong Kong Visitors
    If you want to get out of the city, try Kadoorie Farm and Botanical Garden near Taipo. Kadoorie is located closer to the city, provides considerably more to see and do and it is open year round. Most will find this a much better option in Hong Kong.

    If you want to stay within the city, try the Hong Kong Zoological and Botanical Gardens, the very good Eduard Youde Aviary and the Forsgate Conservatory, each located in Central (HK Island). These are good options with plenty of green space, animals and peace and quiet just minutes away from the streets and noise of the city.
