Discover a bird haven in Yuen Po, where you will encounter everything to do with birds. As the urban street renewal project commenced, the bird market was shifted to Yuen Po, which is now renowned as the best place to purchase your favourite bird.
Reaching Your Destination
The Yuen Po Street Bird Garden is easily reachable from any Hong Kong boutique hotel and therefore a 30-minute ride is all it takes from your lodging at Cosmo Hotel Wan Chai Hong Kong to travel to a world of winged creatures. You may also make a pit stop at the flower market on your way to the Bird Garden as the entrance of the garden will lead you to the fragrant flora that paints nature in shades of pink, yellow and many other colours.
The Story of the Bird Garden
The Street Bird Garden in Yuen Po was not always in Yuen Po. In fact, it was originally located in Hong Lok Street of Mongkok, now replaced by the Langham Place Shopping Mall. As the government was determined to transform the surrounding area of the Bird Garden as a part of their redevelopment and revitalisation project, it was forced to be relocated to where it is now.
Discover Bird Garden
While tourists may not be as interested to purchase one of these feathery friends to take home, as travelling overseas with a bird will not be a piece of cake, the Yuen Po Street Bird Garden also sells exotic bird care items for pets awaiting your arrival back at home. With over 70 shops, you will be able to discover birds and songbirds in whichever shade you prefer.
The Best Time to Visit
The Yuen Po Bird Garden usually opens up for visitors at 7.00 a.m. and concludes its operations by 8.00 p.m. However, the many shops located within the premises are likely to carry varied opening and closing times. The majority of the shops in the garden finish their day’s work by 5.00 p.m. or 6.00 p.m. and the best time for a visit would be early morning or mid-afternoon.
