We welcome public visit to Mai Po

A haven for thousands of migratory birds during autumn and winter, and bustling with vibrant insect life and plump gei wai shrimp in the spring and summer, the wetlands around the Mai Po marshes and Inner Deep Bay offer visitors a chance to experience Hong Kong’s biodiversity first-hand.
As reserve manager of this designated Ramsar site and protected site of scientific interest, WWF can help make visiting Mai Po easier by assisting with organized tours.

Public Guided Tour

WWF organizes numerous tours of the Mai Po Nature Reserve, suitable for individual visitors, students and teachers, and specialists.

WWF’s public guided tours of Mai Po are the best and simplest way to experience the beauty of this truly unique and ecologically diverse wetland location. Guided by a nature interpreter, the tour follows a designated trail that explores the gei wai (traditional shrimp ponds), boardwalk and natural habitats of wild lifes, as well as the birdwatching hides.
