The ship used to be on the real sea back in 1990s then the gov. did all those landfills and transformed this place numerous times just to make it more upscale and artificial Will never forget the days when you can swim iand walk on the cement bridge on the waters, and when there is actual museum stuff in the...

Had a great time in sea world , visited many decent restaurants , good local bars and night clubs , always plenty to do and see during the night time. Prices were spot on for a place with a good mix of westerners and locals. Found a good bar just up the street fom Sea World , about three minutes... More

This place was build as a tourist attraction but it has lots of locals too. Lots of western food and even a light show at night (on the hour). Not cheap but right on the metro and nice for a few hours of wondering around.

I have had a celebration dinner at this restaurant / boat which is parked in something that looks like a pond. At night there is a fantastic water show, music, water fountains and firecrackers combined, is fantastic. Meals where ok, drinks even better. Try the Chinese Mouthai, you will never forget the taste (and the hangover)

Please research before you get caught up on the hype of the name "Seaworld". This attraction is not your original idea of what you expect Seaworld to look like if you have ever been to the real Seaworld. This location has multiple restaurants, bars, cafe's, nightclubs for amusement. No sea animals or park rides, just a water show thats very... More

I always go to SeaWorld at least once on my trips to south China and get my fix for all the European food I've been missing. Shekou, being an expat center, can support all sorts of foreign restaurants, so whatever your preference, they have it. There is a light show several times during the evening and last 15 minutes so... More

Recommended for afternoon trips on weekdays (probably busy here on weekend days). Take a stroll along the harbour promenade and eat dinner at one of the many restaurants. Be sure to watch the fountain/light show in the evening. Very nice!

I visited Seaworld several times. Why? Because it' s beautiful. Many restaurants to visit. A great ship is in the center. On this ship you can eat at several restaurants. During the week there is a lightshow in the water thats around. From the center you can walk to and climb Nanshan mountain. Even the sea is near by.
