Hongkong Wetland Park & Goodbye...

This is my last post that i will be doing for this Hongkong farm trip. My our last day's itinerary covered this place called the "Hongkong Wetland Park" Its situated at Tin Shui Wai, New Territories, mainly to create a world-class conservation, education and tourism facility.

I guess their mission is to foster public awareness, knowledge and understanding of the inherent values of wetlands throughout the East Asian region and beyond, and to marshal public support and action for their conservation.

Fees start from HKD30 per adult and HKD15 for either child, student or seniors. Its really something like a combination of our Singapore Science Centre, Discovery Centre all put into one. One can roam freely in their in-door centre and out-door centre but due to the very cold weather, we ventured out a little and quickly came back to the main building again. Here, you can also see their "Celebrity Animal" - Pui Pui aka crocodile. The Hongkies managed to catch this crocodile in their country after much funfare and fuss. As Hongkong do not have crocodiles breeding in their country hence Pui Pui was special to them and the Hongkong government decided to put it inside this specially made big transparent tank for Pui Pui for display into the Wetland Park.

After all the walking, finally its some shopping time, there is a small souvenir shop inside the Wetland Park. I bought a Pui Pui Mini Tote Bag for myself as a souvenir of this place that i've come to enjoy and will surely recommend it to my clients as well for a fun time of learning and enjoying the great natural environment here that Hongkong has made for its visitors to enjoy.

Sorry, no pixs, my battery in camera went dead alr'dy...

However, i attach a youtube presentation of this Wetland Park for you to enjoy:
