A rather unique and quaint Buddhist Nunnery, beautiful gardens, beautiful statues and the sighting of a Nun is like the sighting of Bigfoot
Not much to add in text (except what I write after the images) this is a visual treat - just visit.
13 images do not do the Chi Lin Nunnery justice, it is a place you simply must visit... opened in 1998 it is not old but it is very tranquil and the proverbial oasis in a mad house.
Located in Diamond Hill in Kowloon, it does require a bit of effort to get to but it is worth it, more so if you actually see one of the elusive and very private nuns.
I do personal walking tours around Hong Kong, I am on the streets every day and I have a somewhat interesting perspective of this wonderful city I have called my home for 37 years. My private walking tours are perfect for visitors who want a detailed overview of Hong Kong prior to exploring on their own and for people who are only here for a day or two who want to make the most of their limited time here.
Many clients book me for their first full day in Hong Kong, they get to see the best that Hong Kong has to offer + a crash course on our wonderful public transport system and then they go exploring for the rest of their stay armed with step by step instructions and recommendations from me....
...oh, and if you book a tour then you are booking a tour with me, I do not employ other guides.
