One of the reasons that we love Hong Kong is the public park. It has so many public parks, that are not only big and beautiful, but also educational for kids, refreshing for everyone. We visited Hong Kong Zoological and Botanical Garden last week and we’re really impressed with this park. Here is our Hong Kong Zoological and Botanical Gardens Review.
What’s in There?
When you arrive at the park, you can find many park map that give you a clear direction to explore the park.
Aviary. You can see many kind of aviary here from the beautiful flamingo to amazing goose, all aviary here are in the cage and we do not allowed to come inside the cage. They also provide many bench to sit down near to the cage so its very relaxing to enjoy the view with the bird sound as a backsound.
Mammals. This area is most attractive for Lala when we visit, because they have many kind of “monkey” like orang utan, gibbon, siamang, etc. Many kids are excited in this area, most of them are shouting to the animal and excited when see them swing.
Green House. They have the green house where we can see many type of plants and beautiful flower here.
They also have a very beautiful fountain and also kids playground

We really recommend you to visit this park when you visit Hong Kong, you can spend like half day here with your kids or just to stroll around and enjoy the park. For us who bring kids here, we really enjoy our time here because Lala can play and learn about animal and we also can let her play in the playground so she can release her energy here 😀
