Hong Kong DisneylandLantau Island
Disneyland is the world’s premier theme park brand and as you would expect the style and attention to detail is unsurpassed. At Hong Kong Disneyland, all of your favourite characters stroll down Main Street, USA, and certainly the Disney Parade followed by the incredible fireworks display is something you will remember for a long time.
Most of the rides at Disneyland theme park are catering to a young crowd, from toddlers up to early teens. In Tomorrowland you will find a few high octane rollercoasters such as Space Mountain and Orbitron, but honestly, Disneyland Hong Kong is more about the fantastical experience rather than any particular ride.

Ocean ParkAberdeen, South Hong Kong Island
Ocean Park is the largest theme park in Asia with more white-knuckle rides than anywhere else in Hong Kong. Considering it first opened its gates in 1977, Ocean Park has aged incredibly well – no doubt thanks to several upgrades. The most recent renovation was in early 2014, when a further 30 rides were added to the already impressive and diverse range of attractions on offer. The best of them all is the Hair Raiser, which whips and rolls the rider with 4G force.
Along with the dramatic looping roller coasters, animal-lovers will enjoy the animal interaction zones, aquatic zone and some fantastic live shows. The vibe is fairly reminiscent of a county fair, with fairground games, a Ferris wheel and plenty of fast paced rides to make you regret munching all that cotton candy. Read More...

Grand Resort Deck at Galaxy MacauMacau
As the only water park in the Hong Kong area, the fantastic Grand Resort Deck in Macau makes up for a lack in choice by providing a park with rapids, slides, a dedicated kid’s zone and the world’s largest rooftop wave pool. Surrounded by Ritz-Carlton Macau and JW Marriott Macau Hotel, this is a fairly new addition to theme park type fun around Hong Kong and it’s certainly one of the best. Following a further makeover in late 2015, Grand Resort Deck is now even more impressive, and whether you want to splash around in the wave pool or take it easy in the lazy river, there is a water ride to suit.
