Kid-friendly places in Hong Kong for the budget conscious
Hong Kong Zoo and Botanical Gardens is set smack in the middle of Hong Kong Central. The zoo which houses an aviary, a reptile house and even some monkeys, is a great place for families with kids to roam around. The best part about it is, admission is free everyday!
Hong Kong is home to a number of interesting and beautiful temples and the 10,000 Buddhas Monastery is one that even families with young children can enjoy. Located on the hillside, the temple is home to nearly 13,000 Buddha statues and some friendly monkeys too. Definitely a great place to find tranquillity without making a dent in your wallet (didn’t we tell you admission is free?!).

Kid-friendly places in Hong Kong for the nature lovers
Off the usual beaten tourist path, the Northern suburbs of Hong Kong are home to two interesting parks/gardens that are a joy to visit for both kids and adults. The first is Lavender Garden at Fanling, home to row after row of pretty lavender. Let the kids walk around and feed the goats, sheep and fish as they breathe in the sweet perfumed air. Definitely a unique farm experience for families. But it gets better because just adjacent to the Lavender Garden sits Rainbow Strawberry Farm where you can do some strawberry picking when they are in season from December to April. We recommend that you pack some food and bring a picnic mat to make a day by the countryside out of your trip here.
Lavender Garden and Rainbow Strawberry Farm: Hok Tau Rd 655, Hong Kong.
