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).

A great weekend trip - but not in summer

The park itself is very good, if a little lacking in actual rides, but the scenery and range of activities more than make up for it. We went on some of the rides (the wooden... read more

Amazing place for all people to visit, the Tea show is a must must see. The view from the top deck is mesmerizing a nice place to take pics.

We had two-day tickets from hotel booking which was a good offer. We did not spend a lot of time in the site seeing Tea park. Just a quick walk and straight to the interchange little train ride to the playful theme park. There are lots of rides. The best experience was Deep Sea Adventure 3D movie which was the... More

This could be a fantastic weekend or few days leave. Nevertheless, October to March could be the right time because of the climate hot condition.

The place is lovely with lots of things to see and enjoy.. Specially, the setting of the Swiss town Interlaken was quite good as well as China town where they demonstrate the tea making process. There is a nice flower garden and a few botanical gardens as well. If you have time don't miss the train journey as it is... More

From the narrow gauge railway to the tea gardens to the re-creation of a town in the Swiss Alps, there is so much to see and do at OCT East that I don't understand why it isn't better known. Poor marketing? Unless a tour bus disgorges tourists, the place has been relatively empty on the three trips I've made there... More
