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). « less

OCT East is a new park in Shenzhen and good for a nice break for a Family. The park has a lot and is huge. I like the different Areas, it has a fun park area (with roller coasters etc) and it has also an area about the history and tea plantation. So really a lot to discover. Unfortunately of... More

This is one attraction in the Shenzhen area that I'm looking forward to seeing again - though at first, I didn't expect to feel this way. Initially, it seemed like there would be just a lot of walking around and looking at flowers, but at it turned out the scenery is quite captivating, and the tethered hot air balloon ride... More

It is huge place and need at least 2-3 days to completely explore. There are 2 major theme parks: Tea Valley and Knight Valley. I like Tea Valley the most with many beautiful types of scenery including a scenic Swiss village while Knight Valley is more like an Amusement park with rides unfortunately many of these rides are closed. We... More

The tea garden is a must, the orchid nursery very interesting as many other things. For Chinese who have not yet had an opportunity to go overseas it gives a pleasant impression of how the real thing could look like.

Hi. I went here twice, on two separate holiday vacations to see my family in China. My family is very close by and my aunt/uncle drove us up a different entrance point so no traffic whatsoever, we reached the valley and down to the motorway in about 10minutes. I advise not going during the school half-terms, we went during Chinese... More

Nice place and all, but the commute to the knight valley from the hotel was long, and it took us 2 hrs. I think the park should make it easier on just 1 ride, and not 4. But the knight valley coasters and rides were fun and exciting.

Great quarter to run around in and enjoy a quiet afternoon. Lots of small bars, restaurants and galleries are rowed up there and you an just stroll around wherever you like. Beware, the prices in the bars etc. might not be the cheapest, plus to get there from the city center is just a little far, so take your time... More
