Hong Kong’s Ocean Park, one of the largest ocean-themed parks in the world, is located in Wong Chuk Hang and Nam Long Shan in the Southern District of Hong Kong. Embraced by the ocean in three directions, Hong Kong Ocean Park covers just over 200 acres (870, 000 square meters) and ranks as the largest ocean park in Asia. Hong Kong Ocean Park has earned the reputation of “The World’s Seventh Most Popular Amusement Park” and even “One of the 50 Most-visited Attractions in the World” by Forbes magazine.
Hong Kong Ocean Park is composed of Nam Lang Shan Mountain and the Wong Chuk Hang Valley lowlands, where more than 40 amusement facilities are located. Visitors can shuttle between them by cable cars easily. In the cable car, visitors can get a panoramic view of the deep bay and low bay area, including Marine World, Lowland Gardens, Middle Kingdom, Birds Paradise, Headlands Rides, Adventure Land, Water World, Kids’ World, and others scenic spots.

Hong Kong Ocean Park is home to kaleidoscopic outdoor amusement park, dolphin performance, bizarre marine fishes, Hong Kong Ocean Park Tower, exciting Dragon, crazy Ferris Wheel and adventurous Abyss, which is indeed a great combination of technology, sightseeing, and amusement. The Pacific Pier mimics the rocky habitat of the 20 resident seals and sea lions on the Northern Californian coast, and visitors could walk under the pier and interact with these marine mammals in the water.
