Hong Kong

Kadoorie Farm and Botanic Gardens

By GavinUpdated Mar. 18, 2021

This place is off the beaten path. It is near the China border outside of Fanling, and is sort of an organic farm, sort of an animal preserve, and sort of a place for kids and families to go to see nature and farmland, eat organic yummies, and go for nature walks.

Kadoori Farms is a strangely eclectic place, but it isn't a joke. They have a good reputation among experienced locals as a place to take kids for nature walks, hiking, and fun. They display and house some local wild animals. The place has a lot of natural land (148 hectares) on Tai Mo Shan, Hong Kong’s tallest mountain. The place functions as a natural preserve and a small animal sanctuary.


Kadoorie Farms is an educational and charitable endeavor of one of Hong Kong's richest oldest clans that also owns the Peninsula Hotel near the Space Museum that is known for Hong Kong's most expensive hotel rooms.

In 1950s, members of the family began an association for helping poor farmers to prosper and learn new farming and animal husbandry methods. In 1956 the association established a experimental farm at the present location. In 1995 the HK government gave the project a permit to develop into the present organic farm, animal and plant conservatory, and nature theme oriented park.
