We travelled to Lantau Island by MTR, and spent half a day there including a bus ride to see the Big Buddah, as everyone seems to call it. The day was dull, so we didn't see it at its best, but it was pretty, and well worth seeing as a contrast to the high-rise of Hong Kong itself. If you... More

We strolled through the garden on a sunny Sunday afternoon and thought it was very beautiful, surely it must be even more so on a cloudy day! The walk through the nunnery was a great experience and the idols were excellent.

These gardens are so pretty. The trees are incredible! A must for any Bonsai fans. So green and lush! The Pavilion of Absolute Perfection is stunning! The man at the information counter gave us a map and was very helpful. Also enjoyed the Bonsai display next to the Rockery! The Chi Lin Nunnery is attached to you can visit at... More

Well worth a visit, very well maintained gardens that occasionally feature art exhibitions in their exhibition hall. Coffee shop and souvenir shop located here along with a vegetarian restaurant situated behind a waterfall.

The gardens were absolutely stunning. I spent about three hours here, just wondering around. Feels very peaceful, despite the skyscrapers in the background. Make sure you go to the lotus ponds - there are loads of quotes from famous emperors, philosophers and buddhists placed around which I enjoyed reading.

This is a wonderful park, but it seems they are going over the top with the rules. There are quite a few paths that are blocked off and no visitors are allowed to go closer. You should follow the path in one direction, but I broke that rule and it was Ok. If you have 2-3 hours to kill, it's... More

What an amazing place in this city where everybody is shopping, running, etc. Suddenly it's quiet and green. Absolutely worth a visit.

Strolled into this beautiful garden on a weekday morning to find it essentially deserted. How is a place this beautiful not crawling with people? It was peaceful, quiet, and just beautifully arranged. The golden pagoda and bridge are juxtaposed with lush scenery and modern HK apartment buildings in the background. They have the largest Koi pond I've seen in my... More

We came here twice during our visit to Hong Kong. The first time is was very very wet, so most of the time here was spent at the very pleasant restaurant behind the waterfall. We needed to go a second time so that we could enjoy the gardens properly and so made the easy trip using the MRT (MTR Diamond... More
