Competing with Hong Kong Disneyland as the top spot to take your family in Hong Kong, Ocean Park pulls out all the stops. Spectacular natural scenery right on the coastline? Check. A diverse zoo that includes pandas and dolphins? Check. An aquarium with sharks and rays? Check. Electrifying roller coasters and carnival games? Check. Next thing you know, Ocean Park is going to have a cable-car ride and an underground funicular…Oh wait, it already does!

Recent visitors can't get over how many attractions are packed into Ocean Park, with some suggesting to get there as soon as the park opens to take advantage of all that it has to offer. Others say that one day alone isn't enough to see the park in its entirety. Families say it's a sure fire hit with the little ones, and that the older crowd will appreciate the adrenaline-pumping rides available on site. Some lamented the high prices for food, but the majority admit that they couldn't recall a moment when they were bored during their time at Ocean Park.

Located on the southern coast of Hong Kong Island, the park is easily reached by taking the Ocean Park Citybus 629 from the Central Ferry Pier or Admiralty Station. Consider buying your park tickets at the Citybus Route 629 Terminal near MTR's Admiralty or any 7-Eleven Stores in Hong Kong. At the park, general admission costs HK$385 (about $50) for adults and HK$193 (about $25) for kids. Visitors are welcome between 10:30 a.m. and 6:30 p.m. Monday through Friday and 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday. For more information, check out Ocean Park's website.

#1 Star Ferry

The Star Ferry is an absolute must when you come to Hong Kong. Think of it as the what the Eiffel Tower is to Paris. Transporting guests between the Kowloon Peninsula and Hong Kong Island, this vessel provides the most scenic route through the city. Visitors will be smack dab in the center of the city's famous skyline, providing amazing photo opportunities, especially at night. 

Recent travelers described the views as priceless, with many saying bearing witness to the city's many towering skyscrapers while floating along the calm waters of the Victoria Harbour took their breath away. Some recommended catching the ferry at 8 p.m. for the Symphony at Lights Show, which is considered to be the world's largest permanent light and sound show.
