Hongkong Day 2: Chi Lin Nunnery and Nan Lian Garden

Instead of visiting the most visited tourist spots in Hongkong, I chose to visit Chi Lin Nunnery and Nan Lian Garden. I really included this in my itinerary to discover and explore some parts of Hongkong. Hongkong is not merely for shopping and theme parks but there is a place like Chi Lin Nunnery and Nan Lian Garden where you can rest and relax. It is a garden in the midst of busy city.




It is a public park so there’s no entrance fee. It is so easy to go here, just take MTR from Tsim Sha Tsui all the way to Diamond Hill Station. Then exit in front of Hollywood Plaza and you will see some signs going to Chi Lin Nunnery and Nan Lian Garden.



I was really amazed seeing this 3.5 hectares scenic garden and would you believe that every hill, body of water, rock, timber structure and plant has been placed according to specific methods and rules.




Every corner is picture perfect but tripod is not allowed so it is difficult to take family picture. I was thankful because one guard volunteered to take our family pictures.



From Nan Lian Garden we went straight to Ngong Ping Village
