Hong Kong Zoological and Botanical Gardens
Time Out says
Slap-bang in the middle of Central is one of the world’s oldest botanical gardens and an actual oasis within Hong Kong’s urban jungle. Aside from the lush forestry and peacefulness ideal for a quiet stroll, the gardens are also home to about 200 birds, 70 mammals and 30 reptiles, including the Bornean orangutan, buff-cheeked gibbon, sloths, lemurs and even flamingos. That being said, the gardens have received criticism in recent years for inadequate facilities and animal care. Something to bear in mind.
|Opening hours:||5am-10pm (terrace gardens), 9am-4.30pm (greenhouse and exhibition centre).|
