Frantic, frazzled, chaotic, hectic, and – most of all – noisy. That’s the reality of today’s world, and many of us are so caught up in it that we rarely stop to simply listen to the sounds of nature.
An invitation is on its way to reconnect with the natural world on a unique journey at Kadoorie Farm and Botanic Garden (KFBG). Here you can immerse yourself in a richly textured weave of forest sounds and soulful acoustic musical instruments.
KFBG is a hidden ecological gem set in rolling hills, with intensive local species and amazing soundscapes. Birds and insects sing along with the soft breeze. Peace and tranquillity come both from the environment and from within oneself. The journey enables you to learn to listen when the earth speaks, and opens up the possibilities for intimate sensory energy and experience.
