We have been to Nan Lian Gardens twice now and enjoy the peace and quiet of these beautifully maintained gardens, buildings, waterfalls and ponds........... plenty of 'security' ? people on hand to ensure the peace and quiet is not disturbed. Clean toilets, Gift Shop & basic café round out the enjoyable experience. Note - Some areas are No Photography Zones.

These gardens are very peaceful and quite beautiful and offer a nice respite from the busy city. This garden is very easy to get to - a short subway ride to Diamond Hill. The Chi Lin Buddhist nunnery is connected and also well worth a visit to see the beautiful Buddhist temples. There is a restaurant in the gardens but we did not eat here. The garden and nunnery are free to visit and are very well maintained - highly recommended.
Also, there were not too many visitors when we were there in early October while the rest of Hong Kong was very busy. We spent about 2 or 3 hours at the garden and nunnery.

Its a really beautiful place see, its really peaceful and quiet. Its connected to a nunnery which is also wonderful. There are little temples, a lot of bonsais, a small rock museum, etc.
I highly recommend it to get out of the busy city and be in a relaxed place.

Its also really easy to get there, you only take the MTR until diamond hill station and then you can walk to the place. There is also a mall crossing the street so we had lunch there before getting into the park.

Nestled between the motorway and several high rise buildings, this typical Chinese garden is a great escape for some peace and quiet. The cultivation of the gardens and trees are quite impressive and will keep you grabbing for your camera every step of the way. The journey is a bit "far" out from the city center, but if you're a fan of great landscape, be sure to add Nan Lian to your list. Also, check out the impressive Chi Lin Nunnery opposite the gardens.

thanks to tripadvisor we spent the last day of our 8 day trip to Hong Kong in this beautiful garden it is easy to find ,we took a picnic which we were not permitted to eat as the park is pristine and they want to keep it that way ,there is a casual restaurant and a more expensive one. We took lots of photos and relaxed in this tranquil setting ,we were practically the only ones there which made a nice change.While you are there just cross the street and have a look at the Chi Nunnery wonderfully maintained and just as peaceful with lotus ponds
