As someone who likes to think they have green fingers, I Have in my life visited a number of botanical and specially created gardens, but a visit to the Nan Lian gardens has superseded all of these as the most beautiful gardens I have had the fortune to visit. It is defiantly not the biggest and it has the unique... More

The place is a surprise treat and one that you would not expect to be placed right in the middle of a busy city. You could reach the place by getting down at the Diamond Hill MTR station. The place is close to the Chi Lin nunnery and you could combine both these places on your visit. This botanical garden... More

The last thing you would expect in the middle of a huge city like Hong Kong, yet a peaceful garden lies quite in the middle of this bustling metropolis. This along, with the Chi Lin Nunnery right beside it, was the most unexpectedly wonderful experience during my trip to Hong Kong.

We came across this lovely garden while visiting the nearby shopping mall at Diamond Hill. The 'garden' is a small botanical gardens in the Chinese style with everything trimmed to perfection. There are a number of pagoda type buildings that together with careful choice and positioning of plants and rocks create some beautiful views.

We had an enjoyable afternoon stroll through the gardens. Unfortunately the pagoda is under construction. The trees are quite beautiful.

Absolutely stunning temple complex, highly recommend. Definitely worth the journey out to Diamond Hill. Can relax in the park and grab some shopping from the Commercial Centre on the way back to the Metro

One of the must see places in Hong Kong. Across the road from the Chi Lin Nunnery (also very good). Winding paths around a ~2 acre lake filled with multicolored Koi carp. The paths are lined with different types of trees and shrubs (labeled) and the most incredible collection of large rocks and boulders set among them. A nice tea... More

As an extension of the Chi Lin Nunnery this beautiful garden unfolded. Waterfalls, ponds, seating areas all designed to compliment the surrounding. A must see in HK.

Having located at quite far district from the Hong Kong city center, it is actually easier to get to this place by taking the MTR. Just get down from the Diamond Hill MTR, and you'll know where to go, coz there will be several singage to direct you to go to this place. The place is so beautiful. I love... More

The scenery was breathtaking, especially the bonsai trees. We see some men working painstakingly with small cutters trimming and shaping the trees, each tree was cut to precision. Definitely worth a visit
