From Nan Lian Garden, it's time to navigate thru the subways again. To get to Ocean Park you have to ride the bus outside ADMIRALTY station.

I'm not a fan of caged animals so I really did not enjoy watching those animals held in a place against their will. What makes me so giddy about Ocean Park is their extremes rides! A piece of advise though, if your group isn't a fan of extreme amusement park rides it would be a wise idea to just skip this itinerary. It will save you time and money.

How to get to ADMIRALTY station from DIAMOND HILL?
- Board the train in Diamond Hill station going to MONGKOK station. (you are boarding the Tseung Kwan O line)
Alight in MONGKOK station (yes just the same just going back) for the subway interchange going to ADMIRALTY station.
Board the train going to Admiralty, now you are back boarding the Tsuen Wan Line.
- Alight in ADMIRALTY station and go to EXIT B.

So to start with our Ocean Park adventure, let's begin with a beautiful view...

Ocean Park Cable Cars (must try!)



Ferris Wheel

ON BOARD THE FERRIS WHEEL

Now for the lovers of extreme rides...!

Hair Raiser (must try!) - Probably my best roller coaster ride ever! If you love extreme rides, this is a super must try! I give this 5 out of 5. Remember when I say it is best to visit Ocean Park with a group who also loves extreme rides? Went for a SOLO RIDE with this one because my friends were scared but still I enjoyed the experience even if I didn't have some companion shouting my lungs off. Lol! There was still a lot of adrenaline left after my first ride so I hopped in for another one! Yes, TWICE and SOLO again! After the ride, I had this huge smile on my face. So lovinnnn' the feeling. Sooo exhilirating.

YEAH!!
PICTURE NOT MINE. HAIR RAISER TRACK WHEN IT WAS STILL IN CONSTRUCTION.



The Flash (must try!) - Still one of the best rides in Ocean Park but my fave is still the Hair Raiser. The Flash swings from left to right and gradually rotates the riders up to 360 degrees with a 5 second stop at 180 degrees. I give this 4.90 out of 5. You must not miss this and have that bragging rights! I was with my mom for the first ride and hopped in for another one ALONE. I just love love that adrenaline from extreme rides. Now I wish I could visit Six Flags amusement park in the US!

THE FLASH AT ITS "CALM STATE". =D

AT 180 DEGREES



The Dragon - after the first two rides I have nothing much to say about this one. It was an okay ride just your usual roller coaster. It was quite boring.

THE DRAGON. LOTS OF TWISTS AND ROLLS BUT THIS IS JUST A MILD ROLLER COASTER. IF YOU WANT EXTREME, I SUGGEST TO TRY THE HAIR RAISER!


Arctic Blast - located in the arctic land in Ocean Park this ride still an okay ride. I like this one better than The Dragon since there was a time my stomach had that 5 second jump that I always love whenever I try amusement park rides.

I just realized I missed a lot of rides in Ocean Park. Moving forward...

Near The Flash was the North and South Pole encounter. You can watch real penguins and sea lions inside.





Around 4:00 PM, We headed back down boarding the Ocean Express (train inside Ocean Park). We were supposed to ride the Cable Cars but decided not to due to the long queues.

OCEAN EXPRESS STATION

It's time to see Po the panda!


FINALLY M ET POOOOOOOOOOO! HI POOOO! NOT PRACTISING KUNG FU EH?! (KUNG FU PANDA)

The last attraction we visited in Ocean Park was Old Hong Kong. It features basically...old Hong Kong. It was like travelling down memory lane with old Hong Kong coming into life. We had our snack here since I was hungry shouting my lungs off with all the rides.








Around 5:00 PM, we went back to TST to catch the Symphony of Lights at the TST promenade.

How to get to Tsim Sha Tsui from Ocean Park?
- From Ocean Park, ride bus route 629 going to Admiralty station.
- In ADMIRALTY station, board the train going to Tsim Sha Tsui.
- Alight in Tsim Sha Tsui station and exit in EXIT E going to the TST promenade.
* Bus Fare: HKD 10.6
* Train Fare ADMIRALTY - TST : HKD 9.7

We chilled and joined the other tourists and locals in TST promenade with the famous view of the Hong Kong skyline at the Victoria Harbour. It is a great place to just sit and enjoy the view and have a good chat with your friends. This is one of my favorite places in Hong Kong.

THE CLOCK TOWER

BEAUTIFUL. THIS PHOTO DOESN'T GIVE THE PLACE JUSTICE. 

After chillin' at the TST promenade, we went to have dinner in guess where again??!!!!...McDo! LOL! We proceeded to Temple Street in Jordan to have a quick shopping activity.

How to get to Jordan from Tsim Sha Tsui?
- Board the train at Tsim Sha Tsui station and alight in Jordan Station. Jordan station is just next to TST station.
- Once in Jordan station, go to EXIT A going to Temple Street.
- Just walk 3-4 blocks from the train station and you will spot the arched signage for Temple Street.

TIP WHEN YOU GO SHOPPING IN NIGHT MARKETS IN HONG KONG (for first timers):
HAGGLE FIRST AT 50%. For example, the price is HKD 180 haggle it from HKD 90 then haggle up the price. If your ceiling for bargained price for example is HKD 120 (from HKD 180) then the seller still doesn't give in, just say "Ahhh it's okay. I'll just come back." most of them will give in when you say you'd just come back then you'll have your super low haggled price. *wink!*

After a long day, it's time to go back to the hotel and rest. To go back to TST, just board the train from Jordan station and alight in TST station.



Our last destination the next day will be in Disneyland! Save the best for last as they say. Stay tuned.

Lovelots,
