Ocean Park

A main attraction here in Hong Kong - Ocean Park - is such a draw that mainlanders arrive by the plane-full just to spend a few days.

Lucky us - we LIVE here! And about a month ago, we bought annual passes. :) yipeee! This Park is not only fun for the rides - just look at that VIEW.

The entire thing is built into the edge of a mountain... on several different tiers. You can escalator up and down to the different sections. There are two ways to get to the mountain-top-part..... There's a fast-train. And then there are - the cable cars:

Doesn't that cloud look like a DRAGON!???
 The park is home to one of the most stunning aquariums I've ever been in. I love Baltimore Aquarium in Maryland - and it's difficult to top - but this place was turn after turn amazing.

Diver in the CEILING - we walked under him through a tunnel

After a long hot morning - we needed to cool off. (Note to self - better to wait till October.. September was still wAY too hot for Ocean Park.) We found a restaurant with air-conditioning and decided that a blast of cool air was worth the wait (very long wait!!). I'm SO glad we waited. Inside - well - just look what we found:

Bunny's absolute favorite animal.

.... till next time...
strollers are fine if you don't mind them on the escalators


  1. That looks like so much fun! :) How do you find these places? :) That view is unbelievable.

  2. That is the most gorgeous aquarium I have ever seen!

  3. Escalator, fast trains, cable cars...and it looked like steps to me! Now that would be an experience. Fabulous looking aquarium...would have pooped me out too!
