It is a very pretty garden, was quite busy the day I went. I wouldn't put it on the 'must see' but if you have a spare hour or two make the trip.

The garden is peaceful and relaxing. Here you can see a golden temple and a hidden restaurant behind a waterfall! Absolutely a must go place.

Located next to Plaza Hollywood mall and adjacent to the Chi Lin Nunnery, the Nan Lian Garden is a great way to introduce both local and foreign tourists to traditional Chinese garden styles. It is a well-maintained mini-park that features indigenous Chinese flora and rock gardens, as well as a couple of tranquil ponds in the center. To the east... More

Signs leading to the garden makes it very easy to get there. However, because the garden is smack in the city, I did wonder if I was heading in the right direction. The garden is immaculate in its design and showcases traditional Chinese architecture with its various pavilions. What I enjoyed was walking around soaking up the landscape and sunshine.... More

This is a place to see the vast differences between new and old Hong Kong, bustling/chaotic/concrete through to purposeful/meditative/stunning gardens..... Every inch is so well planned, loved and respected. Easy to access and something entire families will love. I felt more connected to this cultural experience than any other - every part of this Nunnery has been built without a... More

Free to get in, and as you walk through the entrance, it's as if a veil has been drawn. The noise of the city drops away, and there is the peaceful sound of chinese meditative music. It is well ordered and the walk through the gardens takes you on immaculately clean paths. The trees and shrubs are also immaculately groomed.... More

This is a beautiful place, well thought out, in the middle of Kowloon next to the Chi Lin Nunnery. Once you enter the garden, you immediately hear a reduction in street noise. Very relaxing.

To see a traditional garden like this was beautiful. I would recommend families with young children visit the gardens because they are well worth it.
