  • Get off at Diamond Hill MTR and its a short walk out of the station. Gardens are pristine, each and every shrub is immaculate. Brilliant golden temple in the middle surrounded by water. 
  • Absolutly stunning gardens, wish we had had time to eat in the waterfall restaurant one night. Huge coi carp in the pond. 
  • Conveniently close to Diamond Hill MTR station but also right next to the shopping mall, the Nan Lian Garden manages to remain calm and relaxing. The gardens are picture perfect, a great place for str...  more »

  • If you enjoy quiet walks or enjoy getting away from the noise in Hong Kong, this is the perfect spot. Free entry with beautiful scenery and lots of learn from the information around the park. A lot of effort has gone into the maintenance of the trees and plants. 10/10 would recommend.
  • I love this place! It's so beautiful. It's literally among big buildings, but the temples, the infrastructure, the plants, the items - everything is so awesome about this place. I promise you'll love it. And it's completely free. They also have a gift shop, which in my opinion is a bit overpriced. But overall, excellent place to get a taste of some Chinese culture.
  • A lovely relaxing oasis inside this busy cement jungle. It has a traditional Chinese architecture and gardening, and offers the experience of 6 senses -- vision, hearing, smell, taste, touch, and mind. Great to visit to experience the Chinese heritage, and also to relax.
  • A lovely oasis in the hurley burly of frenetic Hong Kong, or to be more accurate ,only a few hundred metres from Diamond Hill MTR station on the Kowloon side. The overall experience is very soothing with music to match. The whole place is immaculate with not a weed in sight and the topiary work on the mature trees was fantastic. A real pleasure to stroll around, best to allow more time than I did if you want to get the most of the 3.5 ha surroundings. Ranks up there with the top gardens in Europe in my estimation.
  • Nice serene garden attached to a monastery. Worth a visit if your spending more than a couple of days in Hong Kong. All in all, a better experience than some of the more ornate and we'll known monasteries.
