Being the most historical garden in Hong Kong, the Botanical Garden accompanies the growth of many Hong Kongers, including myself. Almost every Hong Kong people had their footprints here. When I was young, my mother took us here almost everyday after dinner.
The Hong Kong Botanical Garden is believed to have the best geographical location, in terms of Chinese astrology. At a very prestigious area of central Hong Kong, surrounded by state-of-the-art commercial and residential buildings in Central, its main entrance is just opposite to the former Governor’s House. From the colonial days, you can find a statue of KG VI, the father of current QE II.
The main garden is mainly botanical together with birds while the junior garden is zoological, both connected by a short subway. All the animals here are my friends especially the ring-tail monkeys.
