Situated on the slopes of one of Hong Kong’s highest mountains, the Kadoorie Farm and Botanic Garden has outdoor activities that will appeal to the whole family. The conservation centre’s paths take you wandering through vegetable gardens, greenhouses of beautiful flowers and plants, and scores of different animals. But it’s more than just a pretty face; the farm has also pioneered organic growth methods in Hong Kong, and helped introduce local strains of pigs and chickens that you can see there.
This sprawling green sanctuary was originally established by the wealthy Kadoorie brothers to provide some aid to poor local farmers. Just inside the main gate, you can get a taste of what the old farming days of Hong Kong were like by visiting the Farm Museum, which features fascinating pictures and old farming implements.

Follow signs in the lower part of the farm to visit small pools housing waterfowl, including flamingos, and to check out deer in an enclosure. The farm extends up the side of the mountain and its higher reaches can be accessed by shuttle bus. If you’re keen for some sweeping views of the countryside, head to the top near the Kadoorie Brothers’ Memorial Pavilion. This area also features a wood and scrubland, which is a conservation area. If you are lucky, you just might see porcupines, pangolin or barking deer, although the best time to see them is at dusk as they’re mostly nocturnal.
