The golden temple, brilliant red bridge and colorful flowers of Nan Lian Garden have been welcoming travelers in search of ancient Chinese beauty since its doors opened in 2006. Visitors to this classic garden will find relaxing ponds and trickling streams, expertly pruned trees and Zen rock gardens typical of the old-school Chinese tradition.
After exploring the beauty of Nan Lian Gardens, travelers can venture into exhibit halls, where informative displays outline ancient architectural practices used to build all wooden structures on site. A typical Chinese tea house offers visitors an opportunity to relax in the beauty of the garden while sipping cups of green tea and a trip to the nearby Buddhist nunnery makes a perfect addition to an already peaceful afternoon.
The gardens are located in Diamond Hill, Kowloon in Hong Kong. It is open from 7 a.m. until 9 p.m. daily. It is easily accessible via public transportation using the Diamond Hill station. Entry is free.
