Ocean Park, Aberdeen, Hong Kong

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:

HK/Macau in Summary

Nov 19, 10 at 12:43 am

Heelloo peeps, I’m back from my 3rd trip to HK and my 2nd trip to Macau. This time, I made the move by bringing my parents around on foot (without travel agents of course!), visited quite a number of places and more importantly, ate a lot of food. I shifted a lot of things which were initially planned as part of our itinerary due to insufficient time (aka shopping overload) and also to accommodate my parents as they were quite tired from excessive walking.

Here’s the summary of the things we did. Contents and links will be added later.

Hotel (HK): Stanford Hotel (118, Soy Street, Mongkok)
Hotel (Macau): Metropark Hotel (Rua de Pequim, Macau)

Day 1: Ocean Empire, Ladies Market @ Tung Choi Street

Day 2: Australia Dairy Co @ Parkes Street, Ocean Park, Kam Wah Cafe @ Bute Street

Day 3: Law Fu Kee @ Des Voeux Road, The Peak, Tsui Wah Restaurant @ The Peak Galleria, Star Ferry from Central to Tsim Sha Tsui, Chee Kei @ Lock Road

Day 4: Ocean Empire again, Ngong Ping 360, Tian Tan Buddha, Citygates Mall, Dai Pai Tong beside Stanford Hotel

Day 5: Kam Wah Cafe again, Rua do Cunha (Gelatina Mok Yi Kei, Pastelaria Fong Kei), Venetian Macau, Grand Lisboa Casino

Sunrise, Sekinchan, Syokk!

Jan 13, 10 at 10:54 pm

Date: 12 December 2009
Time: 5AM

It was freaking 5 in the morning. We had a mission of the day – to capture sunrise at Sekinchan.

My last trip to Sekinchan was on 2008, and it was a blast. So, I prayed hard for this trip so that it will be a fruitful one, and guess what, we had another blast!

We already prepared for the worst to come – rain, crops being harvested, etc – all sorts of bad things came across our mind. I told myself not to be disappointed if things turn out unexpectedly.

Anyways, to cut story long short, we reached there at about 7am and the sky already brightened up. Wasting no time, we hurriedly find a place where the crops were not harvested yet and let our creative juice flow along.
