You can find this peaceful place in the centre of HK, known as economic centre always running. Unfortunately some maintenances were undergoing and we cannot visit some part of the garden. The rockery was surprising. The topiary of the trees delighfull!

As with the Chi Lin Nunnery, I was completely surprised at how relaxing stepping inside the nunnery and garden would be. I wanted to visit the picturesque tourist site for some great photos, but I ended up experiencing something on a completely different level. How lucky HK is to have this oasis in the middle of a busy city!

Nan Lian Garden is beautiful, serene, and elegant and is actually maintained by the adjacent Chi Lin Nunnery. This has to be one of the most beautiful places in Hong Kong - it's on Diamond Hill in Kowloon. Every rock, piece of land, body of water is placed according to specific rules. The landscaping is meticulous. You'll see lotus ponds,... More

An oasis in the middle of a bustling city! It was marvelous to see how manmade creations have created this garden to sample different views and natural sights of the Eastern world. A definite must see.

An oasis in the middle of HK. You can't hear any of the happenings of the city inside of the walls of this garden. Unfortunately the pagoda and a few other things were closed when we were there, but we still loved everything. Meticulous landscaping, elegant music, and beautiful trees are just some of the things that await you in... More

Nan Lian Garden is a unique park: It is placed in the middle of the city, and surrounded by modern buildings while the park itself contains of many traditional buildings. Plus: 1. There are many good spots to get photograph. 2. There are trees everywhere, so it should not be too hot in the park. 3. There are also quite... More

Need a break from all the shopping and boozing? Nan Lian is a hidden gem, guaranteed to relax and impress. Looks like it's been there since time immemorial (though it's actually quite recent).

This small jewel set in the midst of bustling downtown was a major success in our overall visit. We were lucky enough to visit in a soft rain, which gave an extraordinary romantic atmosphere. I can only compare it favorably with the fabulous gardens of Kyoto. A golden pavilion, waterfall, stone arrangements, flowering vines and bushes and tiny water drops... More

I enjoyed spending my time in this park. Not only a park but they also have some collection of different kinds of rocks and models of some impressive places of China. You can also walk across the bridge to Chi Lin Nunnery, another nice and calm place.
