I combined the gardens with a visit to the Buddhist Nunnery Temple next door. All buildings in the gardens are built with ancient joinery techniques and do not use any metal fasteners of any kind. There is an exhibit explaining this ancient architecture. Very interesting to learn about and experience. The tea house is remarkable and I spent a pleasant... More

This is one of the hidden gems of Hong Kong. The park is well-maintained and the place is so serene; perfect for meditating! A must-visit! Entrance is free. Going there: ride the MRT and get down at Diamond Hill (green line). From the station, exit at C2 and you'll see Hollywood Plaza Mall. The park is located just a few... More

If one has a few hours spare time, nearby an MTR station, wants to be wandering alone or with your companion without specific agenda, this place would suit the purpose perfectly. Get onto the MTR train and get off at Diamond Hill station, cross the street and you will be at the entrance of this wonderful Chinese Garden. Entrance is... More

Impressive is the golden tower in the middle of an artificial lake. Behind the complex are high rise buildings. This kind of scenes is common in China and Hong Kong, historical buildings surrounded by modern buildings. Economy prosperity has a higher priority. http://hkindependent-traveller-croatia.blogspot.hk/2015/04/chi-lin-nunnery-and-nan-lian-garden.html

Soothing area to relax after a hefty tour. Enjoy the scenery and eat at its local resto inside the garden.

It was exploring a classical garden in a modern city. There is a Chinese Timber Architecture Gallery located in the garden and free of charge. It was interesting and informative and showed structures of famous buildings in China. Selfie sticks are banned in the garden, and the locals are strict about it. There was construction going in in the garden... More

I like sitting under the trees and look at others taking photos or having their photos taken in front of the red pagoda of the Tang style. Having a pot of tea in the tea house may not be affordable for every one. Food is prohibited but a vegetarian restaurant and vegetarian snack stalls accommodate you when you want to... More

We really loved this garden. We got there early, at 9am when the nunnery opens (the garden opens before, but we wanted to see both together), so it was still quiet and empty and we could take lots of pictures and enjoy everything. By the time we left around 10am it was full of tourists, so get there early!
