Their is also a museum where you can admire... More

Lovely little gardens bringing a nice bit of peace and quiet amongst busy Hong Kong. No entrance fee, worthwhile visiting, will only need an hour.

The Nan Lian Garden was very tranquil and beautiful. If you enjoy looking at beautiful gardens and bonsais this is it. Shame people are not allowed into some of the buildings but you understand and respect that. There's also a souvenir shop, a teahouse and a vegetarian restaurant there.

Much of Hong Kong has greenery despite the soaring skyscrapers, but this is a very large, beautifully landscaped garden. It has waterfalls, a large pond, pagoda-like pavilions, interesting banyan-like trees, and curved bridges. We were there at night, after eating at Chi Lin restaurant.

this garden adjecant to the chi lin nunnery is nice for a chill walk in this otherwise so hectic city. They also serve some snacks and lunch if you need a refill :D

It is a place where the hustle and bustle of the city is relegated to the background. It is elegantly spread with beautiful Chinese architectural buildings, a small waterfall, a small pond with fishes(which my son loved).

Surrounded by the hustle and bustle of Kowloon, this garden is truly paradise. A must for any visitor to escape the skyscrapers and people.

Go to Diamond Hill MTR station to visit this garden. Entrance is free. There are interesting pavilions on stone, timber, and Chinese architecture. Visit also adjacent Chi Lin nunnery.
