Famous "Swiss mountain" theme park and resort in Shenzhen. Even...

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).

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.

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

Read the reviews and was expecting something like art displays and exhibitions...kind of an open air art fair...instead I found plenty of restaurants (they looked very good, didnt try because had lunch already) the exhibitions hall were closed, the most artistic presentation was the starbucks store. Of course, beauty is in the eye of the beholder, probably you are lucky... More
