Hong Kong marshland (HK Wetland Park)

Hong Kong marshland (HK Wetland Park)
Most people think of Hong Kong as an extremely crowded, urban and bustling city, which is true. But Hong Kong also has huge areas of countryside and nature reserve. This is the Hong Kong Wetland Park. Here is the info from the official web site:

(Partial and with edits)
Located at the northern part of Tin Shui Wai, New Territories, Hong Kong, the site of Hong Kong Wetland Park was originally intended to be an ecological mitigation area (EMA), it was later turned into a world-class wetland ecotourism attraction. A government study concluded that it was feasible to develop a Wetland Park at the EMA without compromising its intended ecological mitigation functions.
