Ocean Park, Hong Kong, Part 4 - Pandas Le Le and Ying Ying

Continued from Part 3

Before we could see the pandas, we had to get ourselves back down to the entrance area.  The Panda Exhibit was located just beside the Cable Car station, at the Entrance area and not the Summit.

Since the cable car queues were not too long, we decided to take the cable car back down.  While the Ocean Express (People Mover) would be faster, the views from the cable car were unbeatable.  The following video shows you why.

We headed for the Panda Exhibit as this was the highlight. The two pandas were called Le Le and Ying Ying.  Thankfully, we managed to catch a glimpse of one panda as you can see in this video. The rest of the time, the pandas were hiding.  The exhibit was pretty cool.

After the Panda exhibit, we were pretty tired already as it had been a long day.  But we still found energy to take a walk around the Emerald Trail (supposed to see birds, but didn't see much), a kiddy area as well as a very large aquarium.  The large aquarium was pretty neat, with a lot to see (huge fish tanks), but by now we had seen so many aquariums that it wasn't that special anymore.

Some snippets from the large aquarium, which was the last attraction we visited before we left the park.

So, after a long day, it was time to head back to Hong Kong and get some food.  We got to Ocean Park slightly after 10am.  We left at around 5pm.  We took the CityBus and found our way to Central, to have a well deserved meal of Tim Ho Wan!

Thanks for reading.
