Highlight of our trip was Ocean Park! <3
Address: 8 Argyle Street, Mongkok
Opening Hours: 11:00am - 11:00pm
Love the mall for its wide variety of beauty & skincare stores/counters!
Bought more skincare there as a result -_-
Shop 05, 4/F, Langham Place, 8 Argyle Street, Mong Kok, Hong Kong, China (Mong Kok)
Take the MTR to Admiralty station and transfer to the Citybus 629 at the bus terminal.
Bus 629 starts running from 9am to 4pm, coming at intervals of 10 mins.
The bus fares are $10.6 for adults and $5.3 for children (aged 4-11).
You may purchase the Ocean Park tickets at the ticket counter beside the bus booth.
However, right before we came out from the MTR station, we saw this store that sells the Ocean Park tickets at only HKD250 (usual price HKD280)! :D
Warm healthy tea to start our day!
3 kungku pandas :'O
Now the real ones. Hahah.
The other one was super funny!
See how it sleeps, unglam!
Went to look at fishes.
Panda goldfish? :X
Cute tiny monkey!
Then we took the ocean park tram to the theme park sector.
M wanted to take the cable car, but erm, i'm too scaredy cat. hehe.
First ride we took that made our necks sore the following day! :(
The following 2 rides are the only "thrilling" rides I took..
They're built so near the edge of the mountain that it feels higher than the height of the ride when you're at the top! Cos you get to look down the mountain to the sea and etc. DAMN SCARY lahhh.
Terrified til i sat down on the base of the ferris wheel cabin instead of the seat :/
M took all the scary roller-coasters available that day.
Rides that look down to this :/
It was freaking misty and freezing that day.
But we still braved the cold and went looking at the cold climate animals!
Love the spotted otters!
Swimming underneath my feet!
Ended our day of fun at the old Hong Kong street.
That pretty much sums up our Ocean Park trip.
Not many photos cos I was too cold to take out my camera! :X
But still, it was so much fun :D I would love to go back one day when the weather is much better.
We took the same bus back to Admiralty and then the MTR to Mongkok station to Langham place.
MTR: Mongkok station - Exit C3
Prices are comparable to Sasa stores, and the of cos the stores carry a wider range of products!
Also, Langham place offers free wi-fi, which is convenient for people like us who didn't get the data sim cards.
They have a special discount card for tourist called the LP card.
Simply present your travel document to the Customer Service Ambassador and you will receive a welcome gift plus the “LP Card for Tourists” to enjoy instant discounts and exclusive offers at more than 70 retail outlets of the mall.
We didn't bring our passports along that day, but the stores gave us freebies and samples nevertheless. Very good and genuine service :)
Had hot soupy ramen to defroze ourselves lol.
Tasted real good! :D
