Directions to the park and expenses are at the end of this post.
Friendly park staff are more than willing to take your pictures at the main entrance, just as long as you pose for their official camera too! The moment you enter the park, in mere 5 minutes, your photos are already in tacky, expensive souvenirs you'll have to buy, but of course you can decline.
The park is divided into two. You can explore the other side by cable cars or train. I'm not sure if there are buses as well. We rode the cable car to the "thrilling rides area" and took the train back to the "educational area".
My husband is a dare devil and I am the exact opposite. He tried almost all the rides, while I sat on a bench doing what I love to do in theme parks, eating park food!
Make sure to check the park schedule for shows and be at the area 15 minutes before the scheduled time if you want to get good seats.
Stars of the show: seals and dolphins.

*Food expenses depend on where you eat. The park has fine dining restaurants where food is expensive and the queue is long during lunch time. We ate in a food stall which offers submarine sandwiches. Sorry, I can't remember the exact price, I think it was around HK$ 30-50 per person.
