  • Beautiful place. Nice pagoda. Great to walk around. Can finish in less than an hour. Free as well. Unfortunately way too hot this summer season.
  • Extremely quiet and clean garden. You can actually relax in this place. You can also enjoy the vegan restaurant which is behind the waterfall and enjoy natural drinks in the tea house. This place is also amazing to take pictures
  • 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.
  • Beautiful garden--a must see in Hong Kong! We always recommend people visiting HK come here. It is peaceful, beautiful, and there is a vegetarian restaurant right here!
  • Very clean and quiet garden. Good place to escape from the crowd. Some places were closed without a notice

Where to stay in Hong Kong

Head to Tsim Sha Tsui for the main tourist section of Hong Kong, where it's easy to find reasonably priced accommodations to suit your particular requirements, with more expensive hotels closer to the water and side streets offering budget hostels. You can also consider Hong Kong Island, which offers easy links to the mainland via its ferry and train lines. Chain hotels sit in the northern section of the island, where luxury and budget options remain available.
