Hong Kong Zoo Park

23 March 2010

Botanical Gardens and Zoo

This morning I decided to do something peaceful, and hiked up the side of the hill to the botanic gardens and zoo. Actually first you go through Hong Kong park, which is also pretty great.
Its all free and strange to have such a big well maintained park, quite deserted, in between sky scrapers.
The only people in there seemed to be old people volunteering to maintain it, this should be a lesson to the lazy old people in Australia who just sit around and complain that everything isnt free.
The Zoo is small, and mainly monkeys, but who doesnt like monkeys?

I then caught the train across to Mong Kok to have a look in the junk markets before it gets too crowded, most places were still opening when I got there, but it was indeed a lot less crowded.
No one really pesters you to buy stuff these days, its pretty casual, or maybe they were just frightened of me? I tend to look angry all the time.

I have again taken many more photos than people are interested in looking at.
