Hong Kong 23-28Nov2011 – Day 03 Ocean Park

25Nov2011(Fri) – Ocean Park

We wanted to end our HKG trip with Ocean Park but we were pre-warned that Ocean Park would be very crowded during weekend. We decided to bring forward Ocean Park from Sunday to Friday. We did make the right choice because it was still crowded on Friday (I guess more crowd on weekend).

It was a very early morning day because Ocean Park was located far away. We had a very simple breakfast in the hotel room. We missed our first shuttle from the hotel to MTR Tung Chung. We took MTR Tung Chung out to MTR Admiralty where we took a bus direct to Ocean Park. At the bus stop, we purchased our Ocean Park tickets.

The first thing we did in Ocean Park was to queue up for the cable car. The view from the cable car was beautiful. It was hilly walk up the hill. We walked up and down. We went for a show in Ocean Theater. We took some rides and decided to take the Ocean Express down to take our lunch. . There were many games which was not suitable for kids on the upper part.

We sat at a nice spot at Skyfair waiting for a performance while the two fathers went to buy lunch. We sat and had our lunch slowly until the performance started. It was a good idea so that we didn’t have to rush our lunch to get a nice spot to view the performance.

After that we walked around where the kids saw the pandas and took some ride. The last ride was the Sea Life Carousel. Then we went to the Giant Aquarium. We rested very long while waiting for the show at Aqua City Lagoon since it was a long whole day for the night fountain show. While waiting, PaPa and JL went to hunt for t-shirts for 4 of us.

The show ended marking the closing of Ocean Park. The Q was extremely long for the bus but efficient. There were so many buses to bring everyone out of the Ocean Park. From the bus station we took MTR and then bus back to hotel.
