A zoo or garden is one of the best ways to pass an afternoon with kids in tow, and Hong Kong’s makes a great escape from the city’s bustling streets. The 13-acre park is one of the oldest botanical gardens in the world, and introduced wildlife to its makeup in 1876, with a major expansion in the 1970s. Now it is home to 400 birds, 70 mammals and 50 reptiles. Be sure to visit the children’s playground on the eastern part of the park, also referred to as the Old Garden.
