I looked online for kid-friendly places in Hong Kong but I wanted something other than Disneyland Hong Kong or Ocean Park. I came across several options like Ryze Ultimate Trampoline Park, the Hello Kitty Go Green Organic Farm, Noah’s Ark, and several places where kids can pick strawberries like Tai Tong Organic Farm, Mapopo Community Farm, Kadoorie Farm and Botanic Garden, Rainbow Strawberry Farm, and Kam Tin Country Club. I wish we had more time to stay in Hong Kong but given that we’re there for one weekend only, I needed to choose just one. And I chose Kam Tin Country Club because based on my research, it looks like it is the easiest to reach by MTR.
Okay. I’ll be honest and say that we did reach Kam Sheung Road station just fine but once there, we had a little difficulty finding out how to reach the strawberry farm. The problem mostly was caused by language barrier. Locals could not understand where we’re going even if I showed them the website of Kam Tin Country Club. We encountered a group of Filipinos also going to Kam Tin Country Club and they told us to just get a taxi and tell the driver that we are going to the strawberry farm. We hailed several taxis but we were not accommodated.
It was by some stroke of luck that we saw a bus painted with a picture of the strawberry farm. I rushed to tell the driver that we are going to the strawberry farm and the driver loudly said “Yes, yes!” as he motioned for us to hop on board quickly. Hallelujah!
So THIS is how you can reach Kam Tin Country Club: Take the MTR and get off at Kam Sheung Road West Rail Station, Exit D. Outside the station is what appears to be a huge parking lot with bus stops from a distance. Find the bus stop of Bus No. 601 and wait there. It’s a green roof minibus with the strawberry farm painted on its body. The bus arrives at the Kam Sheung Road station every 10 minutes from 11:00 am: 8:00 pm daily. The bus will have several stops along the way but you’ll know that you are at Kam Tin Country Club because you’ll see a huge tarpaulin sign outside the park. This is the same bus that you’ll ride to go back to Kam Sheung Road station.
