Nowadays, the name Kadoorie Farm and Botanic Garden is a little misleading, for the main focus is no longer farming, but conservation. Kadoorie Farm is worth visiting for its setting alone - a landscaped valley plunging down the north slope of Hong Kong's highest mountain, Tai Mo Shan. Add enclosures with animals, gardens and greenhouses with exuberant floral displays, and it's a cracking introduction to wild Hong Kong.
