Hong Kong Park - 香港公園

Location: Mid Level, Hong Kong

I am going to introduce a couple or parks in the urban area. Hong Kong Park, located at mid levels Central, Hong Kong, is very easy to access. As it is nearby Central and Pacific Place, many people come here to do their scenic lunch either at the restaurant or with their own lunch boxes.

The park features a very beautiful lake with fishes, turtles and flowers, with a backdrop of Hong Kong’s state-of-the-art commercial buildings in Admiralty and Central. You can just walk over to the Cheung Kong Center or the Landmark to continue your way exploring Central Hong Kong.

Bird Watching
Unlike bird watching in the wild, you can do it in the aviary here. With hundreds of beautiful birds, including rare breeds, you must enjoy your tour here. Free guided tour is available every Wednesday. Gather at the Conservatory at 8am. The tour is around two hours. Just walk in without pre registration.
Conservatory – Green House
The Conservatory showcases seasonal flowers is connected to a tropical garden. This is one of the must-visit places whenever I come. See my photo album below.

Museum of Tea Ware
Nearby the main entrance is the Tea Museum, specializing in the collection, study and display of tea wares. If you are interested in the art of Chinese tea, you can buy some tea related souveniors here. A Tea House serving Chinese vegetarian food is just next door. Workforce around this area always come to enjoy a relax lunch with Chinese tea and light music.
