Nan Lian Garden, Hong Kong

What Central Park is to New York, Nan Lian Garden is to Hong Kong.  Set amidst high rise residential and commercial buildings is this beautiful green retreat which comprises of an active nunnery (the Chi Lin Nunnery, which was first established in 1934) that houses a number of holy Buddhist relics, ponds, and beautifully manicured gardens, a large koi fish pond, an artificial waterfall, a couple of restaurants, and  a golden pavilion.

The garden spans over 3.5 hectares (roughly 35,000 square meters), and offers much needed respite in this buzzing metropolis.  Venture here to recompose yourself, take in some beautiful scenery and fresh air without venturing out of the city boundaries.
