“Tranquility in an urban jungle”
Reviewed 26 April 2012

Beautiful gardens and the architecture is amazing. Its hard to imagine the quiet in the middle of 7+ million people.
We lived in HK for 3 years before we discovered it and now we take all visitors there.

“See with Nan Lian Garden”
Reviewed 24 April 2012

The garden is right next door, so do plan an extra hour to visit the nunnery. Brand new, so it lacks some of the historic flavor of temples on the mainland, but worth seeing.
