According to Google, Hong Kong is 9044 times smaller than Canada. Despite its small size, Hong Kong is home to some of the most unique recreational activities in the world. While there are an abundance of activities to do in Hong Kong, here are three of mine that shaped my overall Global Edge experience.
Ocean Park Hong Kong: Asia’s largest theme park
I had the opportunity to go to Ocean Park through my host company, Palapple, during my internship. Ocean Park was looking to build upon their current mobile app and my company submitted a proposal to develop the project for them. Ocean Park combines the excitement of a theme park with the learning experience of a zoo. It spans over 226 arces, which is divided into two sections, the Waterfront and the Summit and can be traversed by a cable car or railway system known as the Ocean Express. While I was there I was able to try all the attractions, which ranged from roller coasters to rapid river rides to seeing new animal exhibits, such as the koalas from Australia and an educational dolphin show. Ocean Park was an amazing experience, which lives up to the line that your parents would tell you when you were younger, “Learning can be fun!”
