This tranquil complex of buildings and courtyards is set apart from the madness surrounding it. Its low-lying structures cover 30,000 square meters of precious ground space while the neighbors are tightly packed into high-rise apartment buildings and traffic-snarled spaghetti junctions twist off in all directions. The timber nunnery was lovingly built in the style of the Tang Dynasty, without a single nail used in its construction. It’s the very antithesis of modern living; should you need to escape the frenetic pace of Hong Kong, step into the serenity of the nuns’ wooden pagodas for an hour’s respite. Free admission is an added bonus.

Take a taxi or the Diamond Hill MTR exit 2.
