  • An easy trip on the MTR to Diamond Hill and a short walk to the gates and you enter a quiet, peaceful beautiful garden despite being in the middle of a city with a freeway running past it. Make sure y...  read more »
  • Beautiful garden in the middle of the hong kong city. Loved the little temple thingy in the middle, and some of the small tidbits here or there. Overall, not a super intensive place, but great for an ...  read more »
  • Very nice gardens, takes about an hour or so for an efficient wander but you could easily spend more time there. Well kept place and lots of photo opportunities, obviously. Mini exhibitions inside different areas too, which are interesting. Incidentally, it doesn't seem to be a massively well known place among locals outside the immediate area going by conversations I'd had with people in the New Territories. Would take guests there again but I probably wouldn't go back there alone; once did the trick.
  • Lovely gardens to walk around in that are quite large with lots to see and explore, beautiful water and many great photo opportunities. It can get very busy during popular times so it's best to plan to go when it's quiet.
  • Really nice public garden. You can't help but feel calm when strolling around the area. Awesome place to relax amidst the bustle of the city.
  • This is a really pretty garden, I was really surprised. The vegetation in the area looks so misplaced against the typical hong kong natural scene, and the contrast with the huge apartment complexes in the background is a neat view. The pavilions in the garden house a couple of rest areas and there is a museum of ceramics and glass, the chi lin vegetarian restaurant is here, and there is a nice rock museum. If you were more familiar with Japanese design and aesthetic, you get a brief understanding of the transmission of ideas here, that the origin of the appreciation of penzai (bonsai), chan (zen), and rock gardens are actually Chinese! Definitely worth a visit and not far from the MTR station.
  • Complete Zen this garden or park is a complete zen! Its a nice place to sit down relax, have a heart to heart talk with your friend or lover. Or just sit... sit there and enjoy the tranquility of the place.
