Visited in March 2014. The gardens are beautiful and well maintained, (had been advised by a self proclaimed guru not to go as they weren't a good representation of a Chinese g arden), very glad to have ignored that! Told others on our trip to go, so they, too, visited and were impressed. There were a lot of very good... More

The Gardens present numerous photo opportunities - popular subjects are the pagoda, red bridge and banyan grove. I was there at about 2 or 3pm on a weekday afternoon. There were a few people taking selfies but it was nowhere near as crowded or touristy as say Ngong Ping. Definitely a recommended visit for anyone who likes taking garden pictures... More

Worth the detour but actually quite quick to get to as it's 5 min away from the MTR station. Remember you are not able to take pictures of the Buddhas. The garden and the pagodas in the adjacent gardens to the temple are beautiful. Really worth taking some pictures and walking inside.

This is a very easily accessible site within the city, and it's free! There is a lot of nature all around with different flowers and trees. The yellow temple in the middle is great to photograph against the backdrop of large modern buildings. You can walk through the various trails to get away from the city feeling. This is a... More

Even many Hong Kongers do not know about this lavish temple/garden/museum complex, located conveniently outside of a MTR stop. One could drop in for a quick lunch or spend the whole day. The golden pagoda's of some of the buildings take on different hues as the sun sets. There are lovely museums which feature Chinese art forms, some of the... More

According to our tour guide the garden and the nunnery beside it is still new. It was very peaceful there it made us forget how crowded and rushing hong kong was during our tour.

As per reviews from tripadvisor, I especially allotted a day to this place and Chi Lin Nunnery and was happy to really do so... A totally different scenery in the middle of the city... Loved every part of it. Ate at Chi Lin Vegetarian restaurant which serves superb good food... Worth the time! A definite must in Hong Kong!

It's one of the nicest gardens I have seen. It's a great respite from the hustle and bustle of Hong Kong City life. Unfortunately, I could not say that this park is a juxtaposition of the old and the new since this park is also new. So I guess, the cultural significance of this garden can be put in to... More

Visit the place only if you're not hard pressed on time and can spare half an hour drive from city to enjoy the quiet serene of landscaped garden. Its a nice park with waterfalls, flowers and surrounding Chinese architecture (of no historical value of course). Vegetarians can have tea and food in vegetarian restaurant behind the waterfall.
