Having lived in Hong Kong for some time and coming here so often, I don’t do the touristy stuff here. Still, I haven’t been to every part of Hong Kong and would want to visit some areas of interest every now and then. I came across Kadoorie Farm several weeks back. Checking out its website, I thought it was quite an interesting place to explore and told Fat Man about it. The farm turns out to be less than 10 minutes’ drive from Fat Man’s place. Perfect!
It is spring (well, sort of) in Hong Kong now and the weathers is quite misty. As seen from some of the photos, the farm is situated on quite a hilly area so visibility can be low in the higher areas. The entrance fee is $20 per adult. We were there on a Saturday afternoon around 2ish, and was dismayed to find that the farm closes at 430pm. We went in anyway to check it out since we were already there. The farm is quite big, with many different sections such as greenhouse, chicken farm and even a wildlife sanctuary. Some of the slopes are quite steep so it is best to wear proper shoes (I was in slippers that day). According to the map, it is possible to hike all the way to the top, where there is a lookout point. After hanging out there for two hours, we barely covered half the place. We are already making plans to come back again for a hike the next time I am in Hong Kong.
