Famous "Swiss mountain" theme park and resort in Shenzhen. Even if you are not into theme parks, this one is not to be missed. Visually stunning, OCT East has been called the “Universal Studios of China” and offers rides, golf, magic shows, luxury hotels, restaurants, spas, and—believe it or not—a scenic Swiss village. Nobody does theme parks like China! Plan to spend most of your day here (though you could spend a week). Noted in Time Magazine 29 November 2007 (opened 7 November 2007).

Not a great time.

A lot of rides were closed, the rides that were open didn't seem like a safest and the animals/birds are kept in the tiniest enclosures. Very sad indeed.

We took J1 bus ride from Futian area towards here early in the morning. OK, when arrive, we faced difficulty looking for Bus 909 to Tea Stream Valley. They should have placed better signage. At the counter, we purchased ¥160 ticket for Tea Stream Valley theme park. We were told it is impossible to walk to Tea Stream Valley because... More

It has a great view! Love the plants and flowers. It was very good when we visited it, it was not very crowded. Advise, wear comfy clothes, and shoes, and prepare to walk. Some of the areas are not yet open like the horse park. There was an entrance fee, which i think is quite expensive.

The overall idea of the place is nice, but it is a nightmare to reach and even harder to leave at the end of the business day. Very typical of the OCT group and SZ in general... copy copy copy everything and don't pay too much attention to details

Oct East is made up of a variety of themed areas. If you rushed about you could see everything in a couple of days, but it is more enjoyable to take three days. Stay at one of the nearby hotels and enjoy the park as well as the local area and dining. The park has shows, a water park, walks,... More
