Wetland Park Hong Kong

Hong Kong, like I’ve mentioned in the past is an extremely hectic city. People are always on the move. This is a place where a 60 plus hour work week is nothing short of the norm. Almost every imaginable plot of land is used for construction projects in order to turn a profit. People just don’t really care for the simpler things in life. Thankfully, the government recognized this problem and in 1988 set aside 61 hectare of land that is used as a nature preserve.

Thus, the Hong Kong Wetland Park was born.


Wetland Park Ticket
In order to enter the park, one has to purchase an admission ticket.
Moose
Inside the welcome center, you will find exhibits about various wildlife.
Tiger
Very colorful and realistic.
Marine Tank
A marine life display.
Observatory
Bird watching in an air conditioned welcome center may be more appealing than going out in the heat.
Outdoor
When I say heat, I mean 100 degrees Fahrenheit which is very typical in Hong Kong. Oh boy was it hot.
Bridge
Outside is nothing short of spectacular. Well, besides the heat. Which I can do without.
Bird Watching
Bird watching outdoors is an entirely different ball game. For one, it is definitely more interactive.
Lily Pond
Lily pond

After, a bit of bird-watch in the heat, ice cream sounded like a really great idea.
