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.

This garden is a pleasant garden, especially the little green house. There are many birds and animals and it is nice to visit. We have a nice break in this garden and it is a good place for relax.

Which zoo in big cities are for free? Of course there are not a lot of animals but they have orang utans. It is a bit hilly though. There is so much to see. And did I mention, it is FREE! Good for simple educational...More

We visited on our first day and enjoyed what we saw. It was nice seeing green space in amongst all the buildings. Unfortunately it started raining heavily and we had to cut our trip short. I'd attempt going round it if I visited Hong Kong...More

While the greenery is a pleasant escape from the hustle and bustle of the city, the various animals at the garden look to be in a miserable state. They're all locked into cages far too small for them, a lot of them looking half dead....More

These gardens are pleasant to wander through, particularly the Greenhouse. The birds and animals are also nice to visit, particularly the flamingoes, scarlet ibises, and the monkey section. A nice break from the heavily built up Hong Kong.

It is a nice quite green space in the middle of Hong Kong surrounded by high rises, near the Central and Soho district. It's up in the Mid Level, so it's a bit uphill from Central.

I absolutely love Hong Kong. Especially the zoo. It's quite big and there are quite a few animals there. It's also free which is a bonus

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.

Free entry. It's a public park. Take MTR to Admiralty and follow signs towards Peak Tram, then up Garden Road. It's an uphill walk but worth it for the peaceful respite from the hustle of Central. On site café serves hot and... 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).
