Click to view my itinerary in summary.

Ocean Park is Hong Kong’s premier theme park. It is rated as the world’s seventh most popular theme park (source: Wikipedia).

I’ve been to Disneyland on my first visit to HK so this round, I have planned to visit Ocean Park.

To get to Ocean Park, take MTR to Admiralty station and follow signs to Ocean Park Bus Pickup. It will lead you to ticketing counter outside Lippo Centre where you can pre-purchase entrance ticket at the cost of HK$250 per person. Next, if you have Octopus card ready, you can board bus number 629 that will take you directly to Ocean Park. The bus stop is just right behind the ticketing counter for your information and it costs about HK$10.90 per way.

To avoid wasting time figuring out what to visit, I have pre-planned a few attractions to visit. I believe photos will explain further so here goes:

Ocean Express train ride to go to the other side of Ocean Park (Tai Shue Wan Entrance)

The amazing train ride that cuts through the mountain for easy and faster access to the other side of the park. Ocean Park is built on a piece of land that is separated by a mountain. Long ago, visitors need to take cable car ride for access to the other side. The opening of this new train ride only takes 3 minutes to get to the other side of the park.

Sea Dreams at Ocean Theatre

This is a must watch show for every visitor to the park. Do check the daily show time and be there early to catch the best spot. Watch closely as the intelligent bottlenose dolphins entertain you.

Giant Panda Adventure

I have to admit that my purpose of visiting Ocean Park is because of panda. There are four giant pandas – Ying Ying, Le Le, An An and Jia Jia with each having its own enclosure. Do not forget the red panda too!

I don’t know why others feel so bored with this theme park but to me, this is an awesome park with stunning views surrounding it. I love being at Disneyland as it reminded me of my childhood. Ocean Park on the other hand, is educational and you learn a lot from it. And you will probably awestruck by the super cute red panda!

To all theme park operators in Malaysia, you have a lot to catch up!
