Walking through the Bird Garden is an unforgettable experience. Young and old are here, people of every shape and description, all with an overwhelming interest in birds. Even if you don't like the little beasties, people watching is enough to bring you here -- as well as the amazing variety of beautifully constructed cages, which can be as basic as something made out of bamboo to veritable birdie palaces that cost a small fortune.
Finding it is no problem. Take an MTR train to the Prince Edward stop, follow the signs for Prince Edward Road West, exit to the left, and go straight ahead until just before the train overpass, at which point you turn left. Walk up the steps and you're there!
This is one Hong Kong experience that really isn't to be missed!
