Visit Ocean Park in Hong Kong

Ocean Park, located in the southern part of the Hong Kong Island, is recommended to those who like to stay away from the bustle of the city.  It is the world?s acclaimed educational theme part and it is good for a family trip in Hong Kong.

The Park consists of two parts, the Headland (Summit) and the Lowland (Waterfront)? The main entrance. The Headland is built on the mountain looking down upon the beautiful sea. Going between the Headland and the Lowland, you can either take the cable car or Ocean Express each of which is a very different experience.

The main entrance is filled with the colorful attractions for children and families; the carousel, balloon flight, merry-go-round, visit of the precious panda and alligator, etc.

The Summit is the central part of attractions for all ages, from a visit to the Marine Land (an aquarium built in four stories with various types of fishes and tropical fishes, the Jellyfish World, a world peak performance of seals and dolphins) to the Headland Rides (Dragon Rides, Falling Elevator, Giant Wheel) which promise you unforgettable memories of fun and joy.  It is also worth to try the Ocean Park Tower - one of the tallest observation towers in Southeast Asia ? which rises above sea level with a rotating observation deck at the top offering 360? views of the South China Sea.

From the main entrance, you can take the cable car ride for about 10 minutes to the Headland and it gives you the breathtaking views of the surrounding mountains, Aberdeen bay and the Park.  Alternatively, you may try the new Ocean Express, seemingly going into a tunnel in the depth of sea, Harry Potter style.

Finally,  only for those who still have time and energy, they can take the escalator leading to the Tai Shu Wan exit and along the way go down to the Adventure Land to try the exciting Raging River and Mine Train Rides.  Towards the exit, there are also wet attractions (depending on season) for children.

Visiting the Park requires a comprehensive full day.  It is particularly hot during the summer months and you need sunscreen, hats (and who wants to have the Chinese feel ? bring an umbrella to protect you from the sun) and to keep drinking water.? Luckily, from point to point, some areas are shaded.

The Park has food and drink, Pizza, McDonalds, but sometimes at inflated prices (mainly drinking) and at the entrance of the Park, you will note that you are strictly prohibited to bring food or drink inside? as long as they see it.
