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.

I was very pleased to find this little free zoo inside the botanical gardens near the peak tram. Not a great range of animals but those there were very pleasant.

Everything here is based on Feng Shui and the four elements. Wide variety of flora, organised on the principles of feng shui, is aesthetically pleasing. A good place to spend an hour or two.

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).
