22nd February 2021 – (Hong Kong) Kadoorie Farm & Botanical Garden announced on their Facebook page that it will reopen its doors today from 9.30am to 4.30pm.
Meanwhile, the admission of visitors and the shuttle bus services will be suspended starting from 3.00 pm daily until further notice. For health and safety reasons, crowd management arrangements will limit visitors to 500 persons at any one time. They will also be requested to wear face masks, sanitise their hands and body temperature taken, and not gather in groups larger than two persons. Guided tours, experiential activities and self-guided group tours will be temporarily suspended until further notice.
During non-epidemic period, there is a usually a shuttle bus service to take you on guided tours around the farm attractions such as Orchard Haven, Goddess of Kwun Yum, Butterfly Garden, Raptor Sanctuary etc. However, we would suggest you hike up instead to the top of Goddess Kwun Yam, the journey will take you through all the various landscaped gardens and attractions with amazing Kai Kung Leng in the distant background and Yuen Long town as the backdrop. The entire hike will take around 90 minutes before reaching the top. There are plenty of toilets near the attractions and a vegetarian cafe located at the entrance.
Meanwhile, Beijing artist Zheng Bo has also installed some botanical slogans at the Farm using orchids and plants to elaborate how humans enhance their lives at the expense of other species. He addresses the current climate and ecological crisis by urging visitors to protect our nature.
