“Amazing hidden gem!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2013

Not everyone knows about this place so it's like an hidden gem 30 minutes mtr ride from central. Imagine being brought back a thousand years to some ancient chinese garden full of bozais, pagodas and wooden bridges. There is also an amazing little shop where you can buy some natural food and a cafeteria for a cold drink or coffee. Great for adults and kids alike (even if smaller kids don't have too many activities for them and tend to grow restless). Great lakes full of huge colorful fishes. Worth the mtr ride. Enjoy!!!

“Peaceful gardens amid Urban Chaos”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2013

Beautifully landscaped Japanese-style gardens in Kowloon. Easily accessible via MTR Diamond Hill Station - short, well marked walk - less than five minutes. Gardens and adjacent nunnery are a welcome respite from the urban crush that is HK. Grounds are immaculate and well laid out. Several places to eat and clean WC facilities are available. Note children are expected to behave on the grounds. Absolutely worth several hours to explore and relax.

“Beautiful..”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2013

Nan Lian is a beautiful garden that is well-kept. It is surrounded by skyskrapers, but in the garden you have a quiet Asian scenery. Great to just take a stroll and enjoy the scenery.

“Amazing find in the Center of Hong Kong”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 22, 2013

Beautiful grounds and amazing ponds and flowers. Very nice museum store with reasonable prices for local wares. My wife loved the silk scarves. Of course she never met a scarf she didn't live.
