Hong Kong - Ocean park

Tokyo was amazing but I always love being back in Hong Kong. There is a nice buzz about the place and everything is so convenient ! People are nice, service always good .... and most people speak English (unlike in Tokyo)!

Little ones stayed with their grandparents when we went to Tokyo, but now when we are back with them we decided to have some fun.

One of the most obvious things to do with kids in Hong Kong is going to Ocean Park, which is a lovely amusement park only about 10 mins away from Central. One could of course also go to Disneyland but Ocean Park is probably more suitable for toddlers and it is much easier to get to.

Apart from the amusement park itself, Ocean Park also has a panda area, an aquarium and an ocean theatre where sea-lions, dolphins and killer whales perform their tricks. On top of that, there are a bunch of rides for little people , as well as a fun toddler playground.

Ocean Park sits on top of a hill, surrounded by water. This does mean that the views are absolutely stunning but unfortunately it also means a whole lot of stairs and escalators .....

Ps. Didn't manage to get any pics of the toddler rides and playground unfortunately, as I was busy running after two little ones but check out this website to find out more.
