Gotta see the Panda: A Swift Walk to the Ocean Park.

It was my third day stay in HK that I decided to go to the Hong Kong Ocean Park. The reason: To see a cuddly panda with my own eyes. I just cannot miss seeing a panda in person. I checked out on the hotel I stayed in in Tsing Yi and I took a taxi to get me to the nearest station. It took me more or less an hour and 3 subway lines to reach the park.

There was a storm that time and some of the rides are closed for the time being. I don’t mind since I’m more into “wildlife” than “wild rides”. And I only have an hour or so to not miss my flight.

Just a quick stroll then goes back to sleep.

 

Time to go. I will certainly come back to see them again. ‘Til next time 🙂
