  • Small but interesting enough to spend half a day. Very quiet too considering it crosses roads and is sat against highways. Go for a piece of tranquility in Hong Kong. When we went it was not too crowded either, your mileage may vary however. Worth a visit.
  • Tucked away in the midst of tall city buildings, the garden provides a place to spend the afternoon in peace and tranquility. They have a small souvenir shop too. The garden's just a short walk from a mall and the Chi Lin Nunnery.
  • While the garden itself is very well maintained and would be a great place to stay, it's surrounded by highways, bus routes and streets and therefore very loud. The buildings and gardens are beautiful, but sadly many paths were blocked by signs and guards, so we were not be able to see the inner buildings and paths, which looked like the most beautiful. The guards were very friendly though and it's a nice place to visit, especially since it's free. Inside is aso a place of stones (with Haikus), a garden with Bonsais and a gift shop (with really nice silk fans).
  • Beautiful and scenic. Free entrance. Great transport from Diamond Hill MTR, includes good signage to the garden from the station. Great photo opportunities and walk around and you have a great experience of nature and Chinese architecture. It is connected to the Chi Lin Nunnery by a bridge. A must do for everyone!
  • Superb gardens! A must visit on your trip to Hong Kong! Food options are a bit lacking in the deli though. Don't miss the rockery and Chinese timber displays. Free entry. No food allowed to be brought from outside.
