These gardens including the nunnery are a "must" if you visit Hong Kong. You can spend quite a few hours here, but bring your camera, the place is stunning! We spent 4 hours here. The entrance was free.

Nice Complex next to Nan Lian Garden. Easy to combine. Highly recommend, and a nice visit. One of the few temples worth seeing that is close to TST.

It was the highlight of my Hong Kong visit because the rain prevented me from doing much else. It’s very easy to access from the metro and it’s free.

I think it’s Diamond Hill. An easy walk from there. It’s pretty well signed.

just go to Diamond Hill and actually there a small sign to Nan Lian Garden (via Plaza Hollywood). you can enter the Nan Lian Garden first. from there theres actually a bridge that connect directly to the Chi Lin Nunnery.
