Stanley is one of the places that travelers must go in Hong Kong. Stanley is located on the southeastern part of Hong Kong Island. The name of Stanley was given by Lord Stanley who is the British Secretary of State for War and the Colonies during the 19th-century. Stanley was the temporary administrative centre for British before they are moving to Victoria City (Central). Stanley was also a last stand place for Allied before they surrendering to Japanese troops during the World War II. Now, Stanley is a peaceful town and tourist attraction in Hong Kong.
Marine Land is located inside Ocean Park. The most popular attraction in Marine Land is Atoll Reef. Atoll Reef is a three level giant aquarium and the design based on Indo-Pacific Coral Island theme. Atoll Reef is a home for around 1,500 underwater habitants from 250 types of species. Beside Atoll Reef, Ocean Theatre is one of the most favorite places to visit among the tourist. Ocean Theatre is a place where you can watch aquatic live performances starred by sea lions, dolphins and trainers. Don’t miss the opportunity to visit Marine Land if you come to Ocean Park!
Ocean Park Hong Kong is the most famous theme park in Hong Kong. This place was opened since January 1977. The number of visitors is higher than Hong Kong Disneyland. It’s located in the Southern District of Hong Kong Island. Public can reach there by taxi or CityBus. The main mascot is sea lion named Whiskers (or known as Wai Wai in Chinese). There are so many side activities you can do in here, such as dining and shopping.
The Park opens at 10am and close at 6pm. The admission rates is HK$208 for adult and HK$103 for child.
I think it is enough with my short brief about Ocean Park. My conclusion, this is one of the places you must visit when you had a trip to Hong Kong. Have fun!
Hong Kong is one of the ultimate shopping heavens in Asia. This place is really fantastic to spend half of your saving money to update your fashion, especially on branded stuff. So, be make sure you prepare tons of cash just for shopping before you go to Hong Kong. If not, you will regret later!

After 2 hours I reached Hong Kong, I spent my time hang around and relaxing at the Avenue of Stars which is not far from Harbour City and Star Ferry at Tsim Sha Tsui. While I hang around at Bruce Lee statue, suddenly I heard few peoples shouting very loud in Cantonese just few meters from me. After a while, they start punching on each others. At first, I thought it just a street show to create a gimmick to attract the tourists since it was happen just few meters from Bruce Lee statue. Amazingly, in less than 2 minutes, both of the bad guys get pinned down by the undercover cops. One of the cops is a pretty young girl who is wearing normal civilian clothes. Few minutes later, few security officers and cops came for backup and both of them finally get arrested. That time only I realize it is a real fight.
Too bad, I haven’t record the whole scene because I was too shocked. I only record after the fighting scene. I hope you enjoy the video.
