as long as the crowds are quiet, you'll see lots of birds from the hides and there's all sorts of other things to do here too. Very well-planned; lots of fun.

Hong Kong Wetland Park is really a good place for children to learn about the nature and water insects and animals. The instructions system is very clear, comprehensive and interesting. You can pass your time outside: walking, sitting... or inside: seeing collections,.. There's a good restaurant. Foods are very delicious and adaptable to children and adults. You have a wide rank of eastern and western foods to choose. There's also a playing ground for children from 1.1 to 1.3 metres (what a pity that neither of my two children falls in that scale! One is too small and one is too big.) But in general, we love Wetland Park and will return there if we have occasion to pass Hong Kong in the future.

We have spent an after-noon there (from 12 am to 5 pm) and were very satisfied with it.

I've been to the Wetland Park twice - once in the summer, and once in the winter. There were certainly more birds visible in the summer, but there were also more crowds. Despite the copious signs asking for quiet ("birds have ears too!") you're never far in the summer from what appears to be a shouting contest between four or five different people. This is particularly annoying if you're in one of the hides surrounded by a coachload of people intent on bellowing at the top of their voices. However, if you cultivate a placid heart, or hide yourself in the butterfly garden, you won't find your blood pressure rising too sharply. While it's not always the quietest place in the world, it's still a lot closer to peace and silence than standing in the middle of Wan Chai, say.

There are quite a lot of birds to see (most of them quite a long way away) but personally I prefer the boardwalk through the muddy swamp section of the Wetlands. While that might not sound inviting, it gives you a chance to see hundreds of mudskippers and fiddler crabs, bouncing and running across the mud. You can easily lose half an hour staring at them - what initially appears to be just an expanse of dull mud turns out to be teeming with life.

There's also a crocodile, called Pui Pui, in a glass tank near the entrance. Pui Pui isn't very sociable, or has become bored with humanity after the nth coachload of tourists has gone up to the tank and banged on the glass, so (s)he will ignore you and turn away when you go to the glass. Then again, the only thing worse than being ignored by a crocodile is not being ignored by a crocodile, so perhaps that's not so bad a thing.

To get to the Wetlands Park from central Hong Kong you're best off getting a bus from Admiralty, which will get you there in about 45 minutes. A word to the wise: pay close attention when you reach Tin Shui, as the last time we went we missed the stop for the Wetlands Park, and had to walk from the bus terminus, which was easily a half hour schlep, even if we hadn't got lost and walked in the wrong direction for a mile. Alternatively you could take the MTR plus the light rail, but that will take about 45 minutes longer. If you don't fail to get off the bus at the right time, that is.

An area of wetland with numerous insect, fish, crabs and a few birds. Most trails are on boardwalks which makes things easier. As long as there is not a school party on the same route one of the most peaceful parts of Hong Kong. You can even see Shenzhen over the border and there is a crocodile.........
..............in a tank..

This would probably be great with kids but I didnt enjoy at all. There wasnt much to see t be honest. This is okay for locals if they want to try different but definitely wouldn't recommend for tourists.
