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).

To me, nothing much here when compare to field of Lavender we have visited in other country. They have flower and man made colorful architecture.

This is the modern and the exclusive part of Shenzhen. There is a huge shopping mall in that area. This is indeed and very nice urban area to live in. Plenty of trees and the general surrounding is pleasant. Traffic is still heavy but roads are in good condition.

We spent 2 days in OCT East. First day in Knight Valley followed by Tea Stream Valley. The Knight Valley is a theme park and it's big. Be prepared for alot of walking. To me it's bad design where the rides location are quite space out unnecessarily. For some reason, the roller coaster was not open. The jellyfish attraction is... More

This area is ok for a day out with a young one, but as you walk around I feel the resort needs maintenance and I wouldn't take my children on some of the rides due to safety issues.

We had a Sunday in between work so this turned out to be the perfect place to while away our time. A large theme park, spread over 10s of acres, it would be a sensible thing to take the battery buggy for 4 ideal stops covering The cable car zone giving you that view that u get in Malaysia, the...

It's a nice area, you have there a 'Happy Valley' and a Waterpark, but up to the mountain there is the Main attraction "Interlaken" , a rebuild, of the Swiss town or a very bad copy :-) The prices are a way to high , as usual in China for 'Parks' like this. Because they lost a little bit the... More

I had opportunity to visit this park and tour the hotels. There are many themes in these parks and each hotel follows it masterly . I personally enjoyed them all, but prefer the Tea Park the most. You have everything here from thrill seeking rides, to quiet and peaceful theme parks including one religious theme park for Budha . It... More

OCT East has more than one theme parks. I would recommend visiting just one theme park in a day. The theme parks are Tea Stream Valley, Knight Valley, Huaxing Temple and Wind Valley. Since this place is far away from Shenzhen city, non-chinese visitors are encouraged to take a taxi to reach this place. Once we reach the destination, expect... More

We enjoyed ourselves in Knight Valley. It's no Disney World or Six Flags, but we had two day tickets and a deal for a nice room in the Aqua Hotel. And once we had those tickets we did just about everything for free. It was a lot of walking and some rides were total disappointments. Don't waste your time with... More

Unless you are going for the spa. It is too hard to get there, but a bus does run up from Da Mei Sha, and when you arrive, you have no clue as to what is where. We finally had to settle for one of the most expensive cups of coffee (we bought three) that I have ever bought the... More
