Ocean Park Hong Kong 101: Useful Tips For First Time Visitors

Ocean Park Halloween Fest 2014 Hong Kong When in Manila Mae Ilagan-4

Last week, I finally fulfilled my dream to visit and spend a whole day at Ocean Park in Hong Kong! It was truly a dream come true for me to visit one of the World’s Best Theme Parks! That day, I got to experience their thrilling and chilling Halloween attractions for their Halloween Fest 2014 so I wasn’t able to experience their regular famous attractions, but I promise to go back and experience them next time so I can tell you all about them!

My visit at Ocean Park Hong Kong was not fun……. it was SUPER FUN with never ending EXCITEMENT! Highly recommended!! Instead of the usual Hong Kong Shopping trip, never leave Hong Kong without spending a day at Ocean Park!

 

With this, allow me to share with you some useful tips when visiting Ocean Park Hong Kong!

 

Before visiting, remember these:

1. Wear comfortable shorts and shirt (plus extra t-shirt) especially when visiting during their summer time (which is our monsoon season) since Hong Kong’s weather is generally very hot during these times. If you’re visiting around December to March (where it’s their cold season), best to wear a jacket of course.

2. Put on your most comfortable shoes/slippers because you’ll surely walk almost the whole day as Ocean Park is really big and expect huge crowds by the afternoon. I was told that more than 20,000 people visit Ocean Park daily so best to come early!

3. Bring water/drinks because the prices inside the park are quite expensive (around 45HK$ which is around P258 for a bottle) and you ought o save your money to buy souvenir items instead.

4. Wear a hat or bring an umbrella to protect yourself from the sun. Wear sun block.

5. Bring a Camera and take lots of photos!

As I mentioned earlier, Ocean Park Hong Kong is a huge place so prepare yourself for lots of walking. But of course, there are rides which can help you go around the park and reach the summit easily…
