Travel with family, Thought it's interesting and it was my first time to go there. After more than an hour to get there from Hong Kong island, recognised the place is small and not many things to see. Quite disappointed.

The Hong Kong Wetland Park is surely one of the best kept secrets of the city. Hardly anyone knows about it; hardly anyone goes there. Most of the visitors seemed tourists, mainly from mainland China.Starts with a huge arrival hall with information desk, movie house (playing educational videos about nature), orientation areas, mini aquarium, lots of information sheets and maps, highlights of today's special programs...Then you can choose to go to one of the bird-watching areas. These are like covered balconies with photos and info on the birds, large windows overlooking the wetlands, powerful telescopes, stools to sit on... great for bird lovers and photographers, also excellent for kids to educate them on species of birds...You may walk through the mangroves, watching fish, crabs and other creatures, listening to chirping of birds and sounds of insects... another great experience for kids and nature lovers.There are lots of places to sit, rest and admire the peace and quiet and the sounds of nature. The beautiful green lawns right above the entrance, with panoramic views of the wetland on one side and fountains and buildings on the other, provides an amazing contrast and more photo opportunities.Plenty of vending machines to get drinks and snacks. Great cafe that serves varieties of food, and a great lookout to the wetlands. The souvenir shop provides another contrast to the natural beauty, but has some interesting and inexpensive gifts for kids and adults.All in all, a must see at least once, if you live in Hong Kong, or visiting Hong Kong! Particularly great to bring Hong Kong kids who do not get an opportunity to see so much nature and creatures unclose.

Good getaway from the city but not that much to spend time on it. Its alright to go on a boring sunday. Not that specialEasiest way to get there. Get bus 969 or 967 from Admiralty or Central that takes u straight to Tin Shui Wai. Takes just under an hour
