Peace and serenity in the bustling HK! Do pay a visit if you are in the area. Very accessible. Go later in the day to catch the evening sun. It's also much cooler in the summer.

A calm oasis in this busy town. Beautiful! Quite amazing how far one seems to be from the traffic and the crowds of people that are everywhere in Hong Kong. Absolutely worth a visit. I am very glad that we went here on my third trip to Hong Kong.

It was a very easy place to get to on the MTR and a short walk form the station. We spent 2 hours there, which was long enough for us, but you could be more relaxed and spend longer enjoying the gardens etc. While it was not very old, it gave the feeling of a sanctuary from the hustle and... More

Very easy to find right in the heart of Kowloon. The Garden Is absolutely beautiful and well maintained which leads to the Nunery. Both are beautiful and interesting to see. They are both well worth the visit!

This is a very easily accessible site within the city, and it's free! Although the city is filled with modern buildings and noise, this is a very peaceful and quiet site. Make sure to be respectful since it is a Nunnery. This is a site which is close to the Nan Lian Garden so you can combine those two sites... More

The nunnery is accessible via MRT and busses - easy to get to from pretty much anywhere in HK. I would schedule about 45mins at the nunnery and another 30mins at the adjacent park.

This may be one of my favorite place in HK. Easy to reach via MTR (subway), Station Diamond Hill, Exit C2, then follow the signage, it's very well indicated. From the MTR station, you need in about 5min to get to the park. Then you enter into one of the most peaceful place in HK. it's a big garden where... More
