Watch the Great Avian Migration in Mai Po Marshes

Why We Recommend it

Join the Royal Geographical Society for a day trip to the wetland nature reserve in the North-west New Territories to see the thousands of migratory birds hat visit and stay there every winter.


Mai Po is an internationally significant wetland which supports globally important numbers of wetland birds that chiefly arrive in winter and during spring and autumn migrations. Every year in winter, migratory birds visit and stay at Mai Po and the Deep Bay area, before flying North for breeding.

Led by an experienced guide, the tour will show participants the fascinating seasonal scene of the migration. Participants will get to appreciate the mangrove as well as other wildlife on the Deep Bay, as well as hundreds of thousands of migratory birds. The group also walks on the longest boardwalk in Mai Po and does birdwatching on floating bird hides.

The meeting point is at City Hall, Central. Please note that attendees need to be at least 12 years old. Please bring water bottle, snacks, walking shoes and appropriate clothing. Binoculars will be provided. Reservation by email to is required.
