Still part of my throwback Hong Kong trip– I always enjoy going to amusement parks. In the Philippines, we have Enchanted Kingdom in Laguna and Star City in Pasay, Manila wherein rides are truly enjoyable.
Hong Kong has their own version of amusement parks, too. One of those is the renowned Ocean Park Hong Kong. The place is also a mammal park, oceanarium and an animal theme park. I used to hear stories about Ocean Park through my mother when I was young. She used to tell me how amused she was to see a giant aquarium filled with huge array of fish. I told myself I’m going to be there someday. And then I did and I was filled with delight!
I love riding strenuous rides but it always scares me. “The Flash”, however is a different story. The flash is a ride that rotates at full 360 degrees. 360 DEGREES!!!! My initial reaction was NO. I can do Space Shuttle or a roller coaster but this was something I don’t want to try. But then my friends were too adventurous lol talk about peer pressure. To make the story short, I still tried the said ride. I don’t know if I can still try it the next time I’ll be there.

I only opened my eyes once all throughout the ride. When I did, I saw the entire Hong Kong island. I closed my eyes again..
When you’re in Hong Kong– never ever forget to try their famous attraction– cable cars!! That was the first thing on my mind since the day we stepped in to the country. It wasn’t scary at all and the view was too perfect! It’s obvious that I can’t forget this trip. It’s been four years since I’ve been there but look at me now– still blogging about it. Can’t wait for my next trip this month. But for now, I hope you guys enjoy my throwback travel series 🙂
