Sights and Sounds of Hong Kong 4

Day 4 found us heading towards Admiralty Station to take Bus 629 to Ocean Park. We took a 20 minute ride during off peak to Ocean Park and reached there about the time the Park opened.

We sat in a double decker air-conditioned bus .... a familiar bus to us :-)

Here's letting the pics do the talking ....

At this place we did a lot of walking and the only thing lacking are water coolers. The unique thing this year at this place were the live panda mascots on display. They had a huge display enclosure built for them for the Beijing 2008 Olympic Games. So the pandas are named ....
Bei Bei, Jing Jing, Huan Huan, Ying Ying, Nin Nin .... from the sentence Beijing Huan Ying Nin.

Below here is a 1 min. video clip of part of the Dolphin Show at the Ocean Theatre. To reach this place you need to take the cable car to the hill part of the park. There's also a bus shuttle from the lower main entrance too. Due to the popularity of the show, the theatre was already 90%
filled to capacity at 3 pm when the show was to start at 3.30 pm.
