Excitement at Ocean Park

18th September 2010

We woke up as early as we can in order for us to look for breakfast before starting our day which need lots of energy. There is no coffee house nearby the place we stay, so we plan to stopby Yuen Long. It's kinda hard to look for place to have breakfast as most of the shops are still close. Maybe too early gua.. Luckily Sam saw this small little tiny shop which I think can fit less than 12-16 people. They served normal breakfast meal such as toast bread with egg or even noddle soup with egg.

Most of us order this; Noodle soup with luncheon meat, ham and egg. Extra HK$1 for milk tea
Not bad as I not choosy when comes to food.

As what I had planned for this trip, our plan for today is going to one of the four major Hong Kong attractions which was Ocean Park. Ocean Park is Hong Kong's homegrown theme park. The interesting part of Ocean Park is that it is not just serve as theme park, it's also a place where we able to enjoy a real marine wildlife performance by the dolphins and sea lions. This is my second visit to Ocean Park.


Lovely admission ticket
Admission fee: HK$250 (adults); HK$125

However, we managed to buy at the price of HK$222 per adult. This ticket is available at the Admiralty MTR Station, before taking bus. Not from the counter nearby the bus but is the counter which is inside station. We was quite confuse when the counter which nearby bus was selling at the price at HK$250 but ours is HK$222. At first, we thought the one we bought are not valid or in other words; fake ticket. Luckily, it was not.

There are 2 entrance for Ocean Park; main entrance (lowland) and the other is Tai Shue Wan entrance (headland).

This is the place to watch the sea lion and seals and their underwater acrobatics from the underwater viewing gallery

Food kiosk in case when you are hungry

Here comes my favourite part in Ocean Park, Ocean Theatre




I had watched these shows 5 years ago and I'm guess that I lucky enough as I'm not just able to witness the amazing intelligence and grace dolphins and the playful sea lions performance, I also witness the performance the black big whale. But too bad, it died few years later. Don't miss the chance to watch this marine wildlife show everytime you visit Ocean Park and do check out the show time. It's not to be miss show!

Since it's summer in Hong Kong and all of us were sweating like hell. It's damn hot, so we decided to take cable car to the lowland. Ocean Park consists of Lowland and Headland, which are connected by cable car.


If you scare of height, you can take the alternative ride on Ocean Express Summit Station.


When my first visit, me and my family don't have the chance to witness panda. This is the bad thing of joining travel agent as limitation of time. So, I am overwhelming when I got the chance this time around.


There are 4 pandas and they are absolutely damn cute...


Is this goldfish? Hahaha...
