One of the best nunneries that I have visited in China. A great and relaxing experience in the middle of Kowloon (very close from the center of Hong Kong). It is fascinating to see the skyscrapers and to feel the "busy" Hong Kong and at...More

It was the highlight of my Hong Kong visit because the rain prevented me from doing much else. It’s very easy to access from the metro and it’s free.

Lovely gardens and buildings with a calm atmosphere. It feels worlds away from the busy Hong Kong streets yet you can see the high rise buildings from the gardens. Great place to stroll around for an hour or so and relax a little.

This is a must, it is very small but you can spend up to an hour here, go early as they close and then you are unable to go inside.

Situated at the heart of City, but is a quiet & serene place to worship or have a leisure stroll. Splendid architecture & is worth taking photos.

No, it only opens for lunch and dinner everyday. For the 1st and 15th day of Chinese lunar calendar, it will be very crowded and unlikely to get a table. Pre booking will be helpful.
