“Grab a picnic mix from the city'super supermarket in IFC before hopping on any of the tourist buses heading up to the Peak - ignore the riffraff toting cameras and hogging the Peak Tram and keep walking up Lugard and Mt Austin Road until you see the signs for Victoria Peak Gardens. Features two separate, gorgeous park areas nestled amongst a beautiful landscape. The perfect picnic spot away from the city's madness...”

Nature Preserve
“This 60-hectare ecological park is a window on the wetland ecosystems of northwest New Territories. The natural trails, bird hides and viewing platforms make it a handy and excellent spot for bird-watching. The futuristic grass-covered headquarters houses interesting galleries (including one on tropical swamps), a film theatre, a cafe and a viewing gallery. If you have binoculars then bring them; otherwise be prepared to wait to use the fixed points in the viewing galleries and hides. To reach the Hong Kong Wetland Park, take the MTR West Rail to Tin Shui Wai and board Light Rail line 705 or 706, alighting at the Wetland Park stop. It can also be reached directly from Hong Kong Island: jump on a 967 bus at Admiralty MTR bus station. ”
