What a lovely garden to walk around and relax in a busy city! Would be great if there were signs about what you were looking at regarding pagodas/buildings, etc.

Wonderful place to take pictures, sight see, and generally enjoy Hong Kong. Good snacks available nearby if you are interested, also lots to buy if you are in the mood to shop!

Directly south from Chi Lin Nunnery it's worthwhile taking a 30 minute walk around the two ponds is this garden if you are visiting Chi Lin. In January 2015 certain sections of the Garden were closed for remodeling so there weren't many seats available to sit and relax with a view. Some of the areas that you'd like to get... More

The garden has been built by modelling the architecture design of China's Tang Dyanasty. Time and money have been generously used in the process. Timber and stones were all carefully selected, sourced and built to reflect the actual style, skill and atmosphere of the ancient Tang Dynasty. It is therefore a unique piece of green in the heart of HK.... More

This is a small but beautiful garden located in bustling Hong Kong. It's a 5 minute walk from the underground station at Diamond Hill. There's a nice looking vegetarian restaurant which we didn't eat at, and a traditional tea house (minimum cost $160 HK per person) which was a highlight for me. I'm really glad we visited.

I must have spent a good half-day just strolling around this stunning place. There is a tea house in the middle in which one can experience a tea ceremony. There is also a really good vegetarian restaurant just behind the waterfall. The Chi Lin nunnery can be access from the gardens too.

After reading that it would be out of the way, I was pleasantly surprised at how close to the MTR it is. Just follow the signs across the street. It's a beautiful garden, which is very unique in such a crazy city.

Very nice and beautiful location. Very impressed with the design and decoration for a very modern building. The rock garden/museum makes some radical claims that we found interesting. The bonsai trees were amazing and very old. Another location in Hong Kong that needs an option to take a guided tour in English to truly appreciate the full attraction.

Having visited this place before, I was disappointed this time to find it unwelcoming. The gardens are a beautiful oasis in the middle of a noisy suburb of Hong Kong. However, the tranquility was spoilt by the feeling of being watched all the time. "Security" guards were everywhere, even lurking behind trees from which they would emerge to follow you.... More
