Hong Kong Botanical Gardens

Hong Kong Botanical Gardens 1

Last week we had a short stopover in Hong Kong and went to see the Hong Kong Zoological and Botanical Gardens. Nestled on the hillside in Central District, this 5.6 hectare garden was founded in 1876.

The garden has secluded, leafy paths which belie the fact that there are high rise buildings nearby. The plants are mostly from tropical parts of the world and include this exotic Micky Mouse Plant (Ochna kirkii) from Africa.
