A beautiful oasis within the jungle city. Easy to find and get to with the MRT, follow the signs. There is a information counter near the main entrance gate. Suggest that you get a pamphlet so you have an idea of the layout and points of interest. Best if you reach there by 9am, that gives time to take a slow walk into the nunnery grounds, view the prayer halls which opens at 9am. There are descriptions and explanations of the Buddhas and dieties within the prayer area. There is also a vegetarian restaurant that has a nice water feature beside it. Its v quiet even though the nunnery is in the city. Real treasure and treat to visit.

The Chi Lin Nunnery is a wonderful escape from the city. It's beautiful and tranquil. Great picture spot.

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).
