A Quick Tip by Sharrie

  • Oct 29, 2011
Ocean Park has changed quite a bit since my last visit a few years ago. Now, it's filled with lots of rides and more interestingly animals and creatures from all over the world. Red-eyed frogs, blue frogs, pandas, red pandas, gold fish of all kinds (doubly cute!) and other sea creatures. It's the best theme park in Hong Kong rivaling Disneyland! For the price of a mere HK$280 (US$360), one can spend a whole day here! The park closes around midnight!



P.S. Do not miss the jellies. They are awesome!

Covering an area of 870,000 square metres of land, the park is separated by a large mountain into two areas, The Summit (Headland) and The Waterfront (Lowland) respectively. The areas can be reached by a 1.5 km long cable car system, a shuttle bus, or the Ocean Express funicular railway. As the Headland comprises several hills, visitors can also opt to take the world's second longest outdoor escalator.[3]

The theme park currently has 19 rides, including two rollercoasters, but also houses 11 animal exhibits, such as a Giant panda habitat, a jelly fish and Chinese sturgeonaquarium, as well as a ...
