Chi Lin Nunnery Hong Kong

It’s the weekend again? If you are looking for a family adventure sans airplane drama, Chi Lin Nunnery will do the trick!

Take your kids to Hong Kong’s very own Buddhist complex made completely from wood (that’s right…no nails here)! This massive complex of serenity mixed with Tang architecture dates back to the 1930s and was rebuilt in 1998. Snap photos in front of the temple, let the kids count Koi in the lotus ponds, wander through the bonsai tea plants, stroll through Nan Lian Garden, and take a break to hear the nuns chanting.

A few familicious perks: it’s easy to get to via taxi, completely stroller friendly, and offers a bit of relaxation for everyone visiting so we can keep calm and carry on.

Why Little Steps Loves It:​

A stunning cultural excursion in the city!

Who It's Perfect For:

Anyone looking for an easy adventure packed with Chinese culture in a relaxing atmosphere. It's fantastic for families with multiple kids as there is something for everyone to enjoy.

What Else:​

Snack attack? Enjoy the vegan-friendly lunch or dim sum at Long Man Lou. Located under the Silverstrand Waterfall, this all natural restaurant nourishes even the youngest of visitors while entertaining them with a watershow via the huge glass windows. Highchairs are available and there is a changing station in the washroom.
