It’s quite easy to draw comparisons between New York’s Central Park and Hong Kong’s Hong Kong Park. Both are treasured oases nestled between lines of tall, shiny buildings in the heart of the city. Both have places to sit, water features and enjoy relative tranquillity.

This photo shows Hong Kong Park on a bright, winter morning. Follow the path and you’ll find the Edward Youde Aviary, Hong Kong’s largest aviary which is completely free to visit. There’s also a greenhouse (the Forsgate Conservatory) and a tea-ware museum which gives a nod to Hong Kong’s former colonial power.
