How does this compare to Mai Po? Which one do you like better?
As someone who has never done any birdwatching before, Mai Po would probably require a good deal of research and a local guide, and possibly a special permit obtained from certain gov't dept. I would not consider going through all this work unless I'm being invited.
On the other hand, the Wetland Park is just much more accessible and it is very well managed with staff and amateur birdwatchers explaining every detail you need to know.
