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

Nice little park, but was difficult to find, as signage from MTR not easy to spot. As of Aug 19, 2014 much of the park, including bridges and mini pagoda were closed off.

Beautiful well kept gardens and the Chi Lin Nunnery was so calm and beautifully maintained. There were many small temples with statues of the various 'gods' with explanations in English.

This garden is kept perfectly and a pleasure to stroll through. We especially loved the numerous bonsai trees all over the garden.

Take the MTR and get off at Diamond Hill, follow the signs. It was weird for this gorgeous garden to be in the middle of the sky scrapers. Well maintained and very beautiful.

We went here late afternoon just to look around and have a stroll in a green environment. Like everything in HK it is close to the MTR (and a shopping center) and it is not huge but good for a walk and kids can run free.

I take all my friends and family here when they visit Hong Kong. This is a beautiful and stunning garden with the nunnery attached - eat at the vegetarian restaurant on site, lovely little tourist shop to add. Join this with the Wong Tai Sing Temple and Kowloon Park for a full day out and if you are brave finish... More

After reading all the reviews here I decided to check out this garden. I was a little disappointed and I did not think this was such a great garden. Its really a small place with some parts of it roped off. There is some vegetation and a path but not too much other than that. This is not a place... More

Very pretty and worth the visit if you have the extra time. Small waterfalls, the grounds are well manicured and everything is picturesque. You don't need more than 20 minutes here. The Chi Lin Nunnery is easily accessible from here.

I visited the Nan Lian gardens 7 years ago and returned last week to find that it is still a serene and beautiful haven amidst the intensity of Hong Kong. The gardens are so peaceful and well tended, but the highlight is the vegetarian restaurant at the far end. We had the set menu for lunch which was delicious. Most... More
