Situated in the diamond hill with a spectacular view of the city of Kowloon the Nan Lian Garden paints a view not to be missed while you are in Hong Kong. Bordering the Hammer Hill road on one end and the Hollywood plaza, a well-known shipping precinct, on the other end, the garden is easily accessible from the MTR station situated just opposite the venue.
A designated public garden spanning across an area of 35,000 square feet, the construction of the garden was entrusted by the government to the Chi Lin nunnery. This green patch among the tall sky scrapers of Hong Kong has entertained many tourists and locals alike from its inception in 2006. The design has been kept close to the classical style of the Tang dynasty and is very much similar in design to the legendary Jiangshouju Garden of the Tang era.
The site consists of beautifully designed water areas, rocks and timber structures and contains gorgeous flora and fauna native to the country. Though kept similar in design to traditional architecture, the garden that was created in the recent past employs modern technology in maintaining this vast space of land. It was built with the primary idea of promoting knowledge and interest of city dwellers towards traditional Chinese culture. The perfect place to find some serenity in the midst of vibrant Hong Kong, Nan Lian Garden is sure to awaken your senses and is open to the public almost every day.
If you are looking for a place to put your feet up, and maybe catch up on some good reading, or want to experience the beauty of an age old Chinese culture, then look no further than this enchanting area where rest and relaxation are never hard to find.
The garden is located in the heart of the Hong Kong city centre, can be easily visited when staying at a centrally located 4 star hotel Hong Kong. Those in search of accommodation options that also offer lavish comforts and the exceptional service standards can stay at Cosmo Hotel, a Hong Kong boutique hotel that is ideal for business and leisure travelers alike.
