Reviewed March 26, 2013

I felt like i was in Japan, or Korea the first time i came to this place. The most thing that made me amazed was there was no entry ticket! U can visit this place for free! Loved it!

“Worth while visit with camera issues!”
Reviewed March 26, 2013

It's a great place to spend a couple of hours, with wonderful gardens and some interesting architectural styles.

Their policy of limiting photography however seems at odds with most other similar attractions throughout Asia where photography and donations are actively encouraged.

“Lovely place, not for young kids”
Reviewed March 24, 2013

Really beautiful and relaxing. LOVE the gardens. But if you have young kids and they like to run, don't go. There are employees everywhere that will reprimand you if your kids are running or loud - which makes it not so fun for some of us. There is a vegetarian restaurant under the waterfall to eat at.

“beautiful spot - not to be missed”
Reviewed March 24, 2013

Whenever we're in HK we like to take a visit to the nunnery. An oasis of calm and tranquility in the midle of the city. A very spiritual spot.

It was so beautiful and relaxing walking around. This is a must see for everyone. There were amazing bonsi trees. I felt so chilled out after my visit. After the noise of the city, this is a place a tranquility.
