Hong Kong Day 4 - Ocean Park & Langham Place

Highlight of our trip was Ocean Park! <3

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

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.

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.

Langham Place

 Address: 8 Argyle Street, Mongkok
MTR: Mongkok station - Exit C3

Opening Hours: 11:00am - 11:00pm

Love the mall for its wide variety of beauty & skincare stores/counters! 
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 :)

Bought more skincare there as a result -_-

Had hot soupy ramen to defroze ourselves lol.
Tasted real good! :D
