Needing some tranquility, peace and quiet after the hectic bustle of the city we headed for this garden. It is an oasis of peace and quiet. My favourite place in Hong Kong. The gardens are beautifully laid out and even though there are signs telling you which way to go round it is a hopeful expectation-it probably helps to cope... More

This is an amazingly gorgeous garden with Chinese bridges, plants & pavilions. So peaceful in the middle of a busy area. Cross into it from the crossing outside the metro - plenty of signs. Pick up a free map as you go in, well worth it. There was some lovely Chinese music playing as we looked around, & this added... More

Just across the road from the MTR, Diamond Hill, free entry, but you can donate in the souvenir shop. The gardens are so green and well kept, it was just so quiet and peaceful walking leisurely through. Beautiful trees and bushes, and the sound of the waterfall in the background. There is a restaurant behind the waterfall. There was also... More

You step off the MTR and a two minute walk from the bustling shopping centre you enter the Nan Lian Garden. It is a piece of tranquillity from the rest of Hong Kong's bustle and hustle with some lovely garden sculptures, waterfall and timber displays. Get there early to you don't have as many tourists to deal with (a lot... More

Of all the places we visited in Hong Kong, this was the one that most exceeded my expectations. The Nan Lian Garden and the adjacent Chi Lin Nunnery are fabulous. The ambience is so peaceful and beautiful, and there is seemingly a perfect photograph in every direction you look.

Steps away from Diamond Hill MTR exit, I was amazed that as soon as we stepped through the gates, the noise and traffic of the outside world seemed to melt away! The gardens are immaculately maintained and there is a lovely calming air about the place. You can see traditional chinese architecture and pergolas, koi, bonsai trees and much more.... More

We found the garden after our cruise finished at Kai Tak. It is very beatifull and has a marvelous collection of plants and bonsais. We stopped for morning tea and souvenirs at the tea rooms which was very nice. But around the next bend in the footpath is a very interesting vegetarian restaurant at the waterfall. Next time! Well worth... More

We found this Garden beautiful and peaceful; located right next to Chi Lin Nunnery it should be part of your itinerary if you wish to move away from the hustle and bustle of Hong Kong! Well worth a visit!!!

This place is beautiful. Free to just walk in, I'd advise getting there on the earlier side, i believe we arrived around 11 or so, before the bulk of people showed up. It only takes about 30 or 40 minutes to slowly stroll around and check out the views, and then head over to the Nunnery, which is also a... More

Really enjoyed our walk through this beautiful location. Short cab ride from our hotel & glad we went. Many photo spots in a meticulously maintained garden. No entry fee - but donation box's located around. A little peace & quite in the middle of HK. A easy 1 hour stroll with the pram & kids. Tea room with snacks on... More
