“Peace and calm in the city”
Reviewed May 10, 2013

Great get away from the city. The cable car ride was fantastic even though it was cloudy that day. The views from the car are unbelievable. Go eat at the buddhist monastery if you enjoy simple vegetarian meal.

“Formal oriental gardens which are a delight.”
Reviewed May 10, 2013

These gardens are just wonderful to walk around and get a feel for the subtle architecture of an oriental garden. It has the lot - a golden pagoda, colourful bridges, oversized koi carp, lakes, waterfalls, mountainous rocks and of course the plants themselves. Piped oriental music completes the atmosphere as you wander around. A very impressive display unlike any other garden that you would encounter in Europe.

“Finding peace in Hong Kong. Here you can.”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

It was so peaceful and nice to walk through these gardens, sit under a tree and enjoying looking around and forcing yourself to stay there for a while to absorb the snenery, the overall atmosphere. On the other site is a beautiful wooden replica of a monastery, called Chi Lin Nunnery with a very nice garden.
