Definitely worth a visit - close to MTR station, and free entrance. Beautiful scenery, nice lakes, plants, rock formations, etc. Nice respite from the busy streets!

Nan Lian Garden scenic garden is meticulously landscaped over an area in which every hill, rock, body of water, plant and timber structure has been placed according to specific rules and methods. Traveler should go

Pro tips: The vegetarian restaurant in the park is closed in the afternoon (3-6) on weekdays. It's located UNDER a waterfall so definitely try to go if you can. On Wednesdays, the little museum exhibit at one site is also free. Nan Lian gardens is a beautifully maintained garden of tree and rock displays connected by a flowing series of... More

Double up your visit to these beautiful gardens with lovely surroundings with a visit to the Nunnery just across the road and a very easy walk from the local underground station.

Nan Lian Garden is next to Chi Lin Nunnery. The grade is also average. There is an expensive veggie restaurant inside the Garden. You can tour Chi Lin Nunnery, Nan Lian Garden together and then walk about 10 mins to the nearby Diamond Hill Shopping Mall for food. Remember : do not go in the hot summer afternoon, there is...

Hong Kong is a very busy city similar to New York. In all of the rushing from place to place - it was nice to step into the Nan Lian Gardens to catch ones breath. The Gardens are absolutely stunning in beauty. There are also a lot of exhibits that tell more about the history of Hong Kong and the... More

Exit C Diamond Hill MTR and simply follow the signs. We reached about 1.20pm. We were initially doubtful of what this garden could offer us as a simple glance after the entrance did not prove anything really significant about this place. The magic begins when you passed a small gate (looks like Japanese Torii gate). It was well maintained. The... More

Catch the MTR to Diamond Hill and just walk across the road to the gardens. This truly is an oasis in the midst of a large urban residential area. The gardens have been beautifully planned and are situated next to the Chi Lin Nunnery which you can also visit. Definitely worth a visit.

A little away from the main HK Island and Tsim Sha Tsui tourist hot-spots, but well worth a visit, and easy to get to by the MTR and public transport. We enjoyed walking round the garden and visiting the Nunnery attached to it.

At first glance, the gardens and grounds of the nan lian gargen are very pretty. But on closer inspection, everything starts to feel overly artificial. Too much effort has been put into making everything perfect, and nature shouldn't have to be "perfect". Worth a look if visiting the nunnery opposite, but don't go out of your way for it otherwise.
