I'm sorry to see DukeBirds review--about difficulty of getting in--but due to its location (straddling the border between HK and China) it is necessary to apply to enter in advance and on the application it clearly requests either your passport number or your HK ID number...There are a number of restrictions put on the organization by the govt, and one of these requires 2 permits for each visitor!
Anyway! This is a place worth visiting! I kept thinking, is this really Hong Kong?
We had 4 hours and that was not enough! We had an excellent tour guide. His passion was contagious!
We saw a nice group of endangered Spoonbills(used to only be 200 and now only 2000...and they nest on the DMZ between North and South Korea!)....We saw king fishers and lovely lillies...and learned how difficult it was for the reserve to cut through the red tape to get buffaloes onto the property (there are 4 now)...We also learned about the fish farming that is going on next door--the farmers particularly dislike the birds and play bird distress calls....
There is a great mangrove forest and some good blinds to sit in to watch the birds...
Do take the time to apply online to visit--it does take time!
The cab ride from the MTR cost $60hk...You should bring water, tissue (ladies toilets often did not have paper), and bug spray.
