This is SUCH a gem in a concrete jungle. The garden is beaultiful and the golden pavillion is gorgeous. It was such a nice break from the hussle and bussle of the city.

As others have said, you can visit this garden and Chi Lin Nunnery together in one go. This is a beautiful garden hidden away within the bustling city, be sure to take some great photos of the garden with the juxtaposing skyscrapers behind. We came in the morning so it was very nice and quiet and I would recommend the... More

If you visit the must see nunnery you're already just about there....a beautiful and beautifully maintained garden that's truly an oasis in a place as packed with humanity as is HK. No reason not to go and spend some quiet time and reflect on how pleasant life can be.

A Little off the beaten track in Hong Kong, get down at the Diamond Hill MTR and you can walk from there. Loved the Serene and quite nature of the place.

Beautiful gardens in the city. Easy to get to by bus and worth the trip. Well maintained and laid out for a pleasant walk. Nice little cafe in the grounds for a cool drink.

These gardens are just gorgeous. Walking around the lush green surroundings, the only sign you are still in the city is a bit of traffic noise and some surrounding skyscrapers. It is just so peaceful and serene. The grounds are immaculate. It is well worth the visit. The Chi Lin Buddhist nunnery next door is so stunning. Easy to get... More

We visited this place with our tour guide Jessie from the nextstophongkong. Without her, we would never know that Hong Kong has such a special and unique place so different to this cosmopolitan city. It's so quiet that when you stepped in,all the noise and chaos from the city were gone. We just enjoyed our time there so much and... More

A very peaceful place in a busy city. Very easy to get to on the metro and free to enter. Also visit the Chi Lin Nunnery which is across the road and a stunning monastery.

Usually I do not like souvenir shops because they just sell crap. Wonderful stuff. And you have to try the chocolate, it's way better than all the Belgium chocolate you get everywhere. But really worth to visit the Garden and next door the nunnery.
