Since going on holiday this year (at least for most of those who live in Hong Kong) is off the cards, why not try to make the most of exploring some places that make you feel you were somewhere else?
Butterfly Farm is located in the new Territories and it’s the perfect place to spend a family day. Here is why:
- It’s still open, despite most attractions being close
- It’s outdoor and fun for children and relaxing for adults
- It isn’t busy so you don’t have to worry about social distancing (especially if you go during the week)
- It’s the only place in Hong Kong where you can rent a pedalo: a boat ride on beautiful swans
It’s one of the nicest farms in Hong Kong and offers a good combination between fun activities and a learning experience for children.
The farm has a hammock to relax while children run around and slide on the bouncy castle and play in the playgrounds.
The Farm offers a number of workshops where children and adults can learn about bees and honey, making cookies and drinks and improve their DIY skills.
The farm is open from 10am to 6 pm
How to get there: Take the MTR to Tai Po Market and then the minibus 20 M or 20 P which stops just opposite the farm and takes 10 minutes.
Address: Butterfly Valley, No. 8 Fung Yuen Road, Tai Po, New Territories
