Hong Kong’s City Oasis of Nan Lian Gardens & Chi Lin Nunnery

Hong Kong’s City Oasis of Nan Lian Gardens & Chi Lin Nunnery

Nestled in between the high-rise apartment block of the Diamond Hill neighbourhood,Chi Lin Nunnery and Nan Lian Gardens provide a welcome respite from the frantic pace of Hong Kong.  This 1930s compound replicates the iconic Tang Dynasty style of broad wooden architecture and red and gold pavilions to bring a sense of tradition to such a modern surrounding.

The grounds also host one of the best Vegetarian restaurants in the city (Chi Lin Vegetarian) and a quanit yet exclusive tea rooms behind a flowing waterfall.Now I am slightly less budget focused I can’t wait to revisit this center of tranquility and get my Tofu on!
