With how large Lai Chi Kok Park is, it only seems fitting that there would be a Chinese garden in the midst of the park grounds. As its name suggests, the garden is modelled following the Lingnan style – one of the major garden styles following Sichuanese and Jingnan that divides a garden into a combination of multiple courtyard, and uses elements like towers, bridges, and corridors. Lingnan Garden has plenty of winding paths that divide the courtyard and features ten scenic spots that naturally flow into each other. Rejuvenate by taking a walk on the pebble stone footpath, and immerse yourself in the park’s serene environment.
Hong Kong's fast-paced lifestyle hardly gives people the time to unwind and take a breather. While we might not have the time to take a whole day off and relax, going for a walk with a scenic atmosphere is a quick fix to take your mind off all that’s leaving you stressed. In particular, going for a walk in a Chinese-style garden will transport you to an entirely different environment and provide the tranquillity that you deserve.
Typically consisting of traditional architectural structures like pavilions and moon gates; halls and pathways connected by winding trails and ponds; and lush greenery enclosed within walls, Chinese-style gardens are built to impress and serve as an escape from the outside world. We’ve combed through the city to find the best Chinese gardens that will leave you feeling relaxed after a casual stroll.
