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

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

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.

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.
