Despite being right in the middle of the city, Hong Kong Park is home to Southeast Asia’s largest aviary. If you’re a newcomer to the hobby, there are helpful free bird-watching walks held every Wednesday, 8am to 10am, organised by the Hong Kong Bird Watching Society and the Leisure and Cultural Services Department.
