Nan Lian Garden // Hong Kong

I’ve been looking for places to take photos in Hong Kong besides the notable tourist areas like Victoria Harbor and the Peak. This place came up as I was googling things to do in Hong Kong and it was quite near my house. After a busy start of the week, I decided to pack my camera in my backpack and go take some photos!

Getting the the garden was easy, just take the MTR for a few stops:


I didn’t really get the directions to the garden beforehand since it was so close to the MTR station. There were signs leading to the garden and it was super easy to find and get to. I would say it was like a 5 minute walk.

The Nan Lian Garden is a classical Chinese garden “built in the classical style of Tang Dynasty.  Hillocks, rocks, waters, plants and timber structures are built and placed according to rules and methods of Tang style.   The design of the Garden is based on the classical one-way circular route.”

I visited the Chinese Timber Architecture Gallery first but unfortunately there’s no photography allowed. Inside the gallery was scaled models of historical timber structures.

As I walk along the route, I can see the golden Pavilion of Absolute of Perfection peaking through the scenery.

I soon found myself at Lunar Reflection Terrace where I got a great view of The Pine Teahouse:

The Pavilion Bridge reminded me of sceneries I would see in ancient Japan:
