Beautiful, quiet serene place located in the middle of the city. Small zoo with many exhibits. Great way to relax from shopping and sight seeing.

Had a 14 hour stop over in Hong and decided to visit the botanical gardens after taking the airport express train (very quick and good) into the city. We walked to the gardens as we wanted some exercise after our 12 hour flight from Zurich....More

Nice place, but watch out for the mosquitoes! Saw these posters down Central, so use a good insect repellent. My girlfriend’s DEET spray didn’t work well at all and she got a number of bites

The gardens are a tranquil escape from the concrete jungle of Hong Kong & as entrance is free it is bustling with expats & their kids seeking space to run around in some shade. The flora is well maintained & very pleasant to walk around....More

Plenty of space to wander around here and soak up the sights and sounds of Hong Kong. Large fountain to see, and lots of enclosures for animals and birds - including monkeys and orangutans

The Botanical Gardens themselves are a delight- lovely examples of flora, nice greenhouse, fountain, bamboo garden etc- a green oasis. The zoo, however, to us was very disappointing. My wife and I have been to dozens of zoos worldwide, are members of several zoos worldwide,...More

We got the bus here from Pokfulam Village, it was a bit of a walk uphill, & then there were the steps to tackle, although I’m sure there must be an easier route. There’s benches to sit on before the final set of steps that...More

Central
When people think of Hong Kong, most imagine movies
with famous skyscrapers dominating the skyline. The
area widely known as Central is the major financial
hub and entertainment district, which truly lives up
to the saying, “work hard, play hard.” Bars stay open
late into the night and there just happens to be a
street party every weekend. Although everything seems
to be operating at lightning speed, Central is full of

I am sorry to tell you it is not a real zoo as you would expect. however, it is free so you could still go there to have a look. It won't be too interesting in my mind.

No fee. Not a big zoo. If going from Admiralty (MRT) up, up, up, for a heart and lung challenge, think twice! You had better be in shape and ready for a confusing and poorly marked walk up many, many steps, steep grades... More

There are no Pandas in the HK Zoo (here you placed your question); at Ocean Park they have giant and red pandas and shows that they get fed (the red ones).
