It's hard to believe that such a peaceful place can exists in a bustling, loud metropolis like Hong Kong, but it does! The scenery is beautiful, the architecture fascinating and we got a Buddhist blessing thrown in because it was CNY!

Not what I expected when told we were going there but very glad we did. Very interesting architecture, with one building dedicated to explaining how the buildings were constructed with a video. Manicured gardens, koi pond and some good views.

Old Hongkong settng in the middle of the city, just walking distance from the train station. It gives you a solemn, peaceful and quiet time in a busy, buzzling city.

Chi Lin Nunnery is a lovely spot. My Mrs. and I went there during the Chinese New Year and it was great. Lots of people came there to pray. We were given red envelopes there too. A really nice environment.

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.
