Yoga moves in front of Ocean Park's Grand Aquarium.
Hong Kong’s Ocean Park is taking advantage of its reopening at this cooler time of year with a host of ‘green getaways’.
In a bid to entice visitors back, the park has put together a menu of new experiences.
“Our Green Staycation kicks off a series of brand new experiences and programmes specially curated for all types of visitors,” said Lau Ming-wai, Ocean Park’s chairman. "We're excited to introduce... experiences that resonate with the wellness needs of Hongkongers, while showcasing all that the Southern District has to offer with its amazing coasts and mountain views."
Experiences include the innovative ‘Yoga Vogue’ programme, which offers 30 dynamic and static workshops including stand-up paddle board yoga at the park’s Aqua City Lagoon and an Immersive Meditation Gong Bath at the Grand Aquarium.
The park’s nature specialists will be leading ‘Brick Hill Secret Unveil’ hikes up to Nam Long Shan beneath the park’s cable cars, revealing little-known history and fun facts and pointing out local wildlife along the trail.
Exploring the hiking trails inside the theme park.
There will also be a chance to go behind the scenes at the park's recently opened Hong Kong Marine Life Stranding and Education Centre to take a look at the conservation efforts to protect endangered marine animals.
And the 'Starry Summit Glamping' expedition will see guests sleeping under the stars in an air conditioned tent on the park’s Summit, an experience that can be paired with a BBQ dinner at nearby Terrace Cafe.
Sign-up online now for the 'Yoga Vogue' and 'Brick Hill Secret Unveil' experiences; details of the Starry Summit Glamping trips will be available in late October.
All proceeds from 'Yoga Vogue' and 'Brick Hill Secret Unveil' will be donated to Ocean Park Conservation Foundation Hong Kong to support nature conservation.
