Nan Lian Garden in Hong Kong | Gardens and country parks of Hong Kong

It’s been three years since I moved to #HongKong and in these three years lots of friends & acquaintances have visited us for a holiday. Some of them invariably remark that HK is a concrete jungle. While, I am not disputing that view, but there is definitely more to HK than just tall skyscrapers. This thought prompted me to do a series of short posts on the charming and alluring gardens of HK. So here is my first Garden for you all - Nan Lian Garden located in Diamond Hill, east Kowloon in Hong Kong.

Po Lin Monastery on Lantau Island | Hong Kong

Po Lin Monastery, located on Ngong Ping pleateau of Lantau Island in Hong Kong is a pretty Buddhist monastery complex, located amidst beautiful surroundings.  The star attraction of Po Lin monastery is ofcourse The Big Buddha’ or Tian Tan Buddha and it is listed as one of the top 10 attractions of Hong Kong by Hong Kong Tourism Board itself. However, I found the monastery to be a serene & relaxing place on a leisurely stroll through the monastery after visiting The Big Buddha along with my friend (on my solo trip to Hong Kong). Sharing my experience of a visit to Po Lin Monastery in Lantau Island, Hong Kong.
