    The Chi Lin Nunnery was a very surprising highlight to our trip. I thought it was be interesting to go, but it was absolutely stunning and probably somewhere I would go back to over and over. It was incredibly peaceful and tranquil. The buildings and grounds were immaculate and beautiful.

    Nice to walk around before getting on Peak tram. There are some monkeys and birds besides arboretum. Nice respite from urban HK. It is free of charge!

    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.

    As a park, Tamar Park is just so so. But what makes it distinctive is the fact that it offers a great vantage point for the Central Government Offices which consist of an East Wing and a West Wing linked at the top by an overhanging structure making the whole architecture resembling that of an open door. Also note that on Sundays the park is overwhelmed by Phillpino maids who congregate there on their day off.

    I had elders that had caged birds, so the idea of a place where people took their birds for a walk was always amusing to me. This place isn’t big, but is right next to the flower market so it’s easy to combine. Not really worth visiting on it’s own, but definitely made for some interesting pics and conversations.

    A small garden located in the middle of skyscrapers. An oasis of tranquility in the middle of the cement and glass giants. It is close to the access to the peak tram. It is worth resting for a while

    A park with lots to do especially the Reptile House where my kids spent quite some time there amazed by the creatures that they don’t encounter much in their daily lives. It’s conveniently connected to the V City that we had lunch there after the morning at the park.

    Get off at Diamond Hill MTR exit c and follow the signs outside to Chi Lin Nunnery.

    The gardens are a beautiful escape from the traffic of the city.

    A real good place to collect your thoughts and bin the bad ones!

    While here you might as well visit the monastery/nunnery of Chi Lin.

    Park area alongside Chatham Road South, the most interesting being the six-pillar colonnade salvaged from the former Kowloon Station and the fountain feature behind. Paved area with seating, flora and mature trees. Worth a visit especially if the fountain is working.

    As part of the French May (2019) celebration in Hong Kong, there is an interesting exhibition at the Sha Tin Town Hall called 'Legend of the 20th century Art by Niki de Sant Phalle being held from 5 May to 2 June 2019. Opening hours are 10am to 8pm daily.

    You can also find outdoor installations of Niki de Saint Phalle, the French-American sculptor in the City Art Plaza space in front of New Town Plaza entrance, just across from the Town Hall.

    The sculptures are eccentric contemporary forms of human figures with colourful mosaic attire. The sculptures are of interesting shape and composition, providing visitors something unique and different to look at when passing through New Town Plaza shopping mall and the Sha Tin Park area of the city.

    This is a small urban park situated east of Austin Station and west of Jordan Station on the Kowloon Peninsula. It is 1.5 acres in size and one of two parks in Hong Kong dedicated to King George V. The other is in Sai Ying Pun on Hong Kong Island. The Kowloon park was opened in 1941 and originally included a statue of King George V. However, it along with the park facilities were destroyed during the Japanese occupation.

    After WWII, traditional Chinese pavilion structures were built within the park grounds. You can also see a traditional Chinese style park entrance on the north side as well as some nice landscaping with wooden pavilion and grotto rock formations. Plenty of park benches with fair shade from the mature trees found within the park grounds. Football pitch and children's playground area round out the King George V Park in Kowloon.

    On the whole, it is a nice little urban park and opportunity for area residents to escape the busy street scenes on all sides. Worth a few minutes for a brief sit down if in the area and in need of a rest. Otherwise, you're not too far from the much larger and interesting Kowloon Park around 5 minutes walk south if this is what you are looking for.

    You can skip this square. Except for a few shops and couple coffee shops that's it.
    I personally find this area a bit untidy. You can also see dried meat and susages hanging from some shop windows.

    If you are looking for shopping u can try elsewhere.

    Wan Chai Park is dominated by a large banyon tree. Other than that, it is the usual faire for neighborhood park including facilities for children's playground, soccer fields, and even a pool for launching model boats.

    This beautiful greenhouse is located within the Hong Kong Botanical and Zoological Gardens. The aviary and zoo are of course the main attractions but the Greenhouse is also worth a visit and entry is free. For most of the year, the greenhouse is filled with beautiful displays of many different orchids, from tiny delicate blooms to large, showy look-at-me ones.
    You can easily spend an hour or so here, visiting the Greenhouse and then wandering through the park, looking at the flamingos, monkeys, the fountain and the beautiful gardens. Some enclosures are currently closed due to covid-19 restrictions but most of the park is open.
    It’s a particularly good place to go if you need some time out from the busy city centre or if you have kids who need to stretch their legs.
    Orchid lovers can also see more orchids throughout market street stalls like Gresson St in Wan Chai and Mong Kok Flower Market.
    GETTING THERE: From Central MTR, take D2 exit. It’s s 10-15 min walk uphill through Lan Kwai Fung but it is uphill all the way steep. A taxi will cost about $30HKD. Entry to the gardens, the zoo and greenhouse are all free.
