“Nice”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2014

Visited last May. If you have seen everything and have a spare hour this is a nice place. Pleasant walk and nice views from the Buddha.

“Surprising nice.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2014

A surprisingly nice place . It was hot and humid the day I visited, it will be a more enjoyable experience if the weather is more cooling. Climb the stairs up to the giant Buddha statue to have a great view of the surrounding.

“Very relaxing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2014

Beautiful gardens, very relaxing and peaceful, great place to escape the hustle and bustle of Hong Kong. Opened 7 days a week, no entrance fee, small vegetarian cafe and tea house in the gardens. Tea house experience was great, took about 3 hours to sample all the teas we purchased, truly special experience.
