This is a beautiful park and a bit of an oasis in the middle of HK's concrete jungle. I would highly recommend a morning or late afternoon spent here.

A beautiful, large nunnery in the middle of bustling Hong Kong. A favorite place for me to visit when I come to Hong Kong and have the time to go there.

Also please enjoy the gardens. The nunnery is easy to get to and very nice. Also a nice souvenier shop (consider a bamboo towel...mine mopped my sweaty brow for weeks and never developed an odor, fitting nicely in my purse).

We've just come back from a visit to Hong Kong having lived there a good few years ago and it was trip advisor that persuaded us to visit the Chi Lin Nunnery.
What a delight....Most surprisingly there is no admission charge and it would be fair to say that everything about it was exquisite. The buildings, the gardens, the general layout and the peacefulness really takes one by surprise. Whilst the inside of the buildings were a photographic no-go area, there was more than enough outside to take pictures of and to treasure from the visit.
Go early during the week and avoid any potential crowds,,,,,,,,,,,,,,a real gem of a place for which you will not be let down. A short walk from Diamond Hill MTR.

A very nice retreat from the concrete jungle and busy city, worth the trip, the neighbouring gardens are a treat.
