Famous "Swiss mountain" theme park and resort in Shenzhen. Even...

Famous "Swiss mountain" theme park and resort in Shenzhen. Even if you are not into theme parks, this one is not to be missed. Visually stunning, OCT East has been called the “Universal Studios of China” and offers rides, golf, magic shows, luxury hotels, restaurants, spas, and—believe it or not—a scenic Swiss village. Nobody does theme parks like China! Plan to spend most of your day here (though you could spend a week).

Noted in Time Magazine 29 November 2007 (opened 7 November 2007).

great place to relax and get away from the hustle (afternoon is best)

A great place to come and relax in the afternoon. There are many nice cafes and restaurants. This entertainment area is easy to get to - a short walk from OCT metro station.

There are so many restaurants here that I am sure you'll be able to find something suits you. I see that they are mix of chains or individual restaurants. They all have different themes. Great walk around in the area after your meal. We didn't explore too much as we arrived late after a massage and heading for a movie... More

The OCT East Shenzhen is a combination park, if you want to see the entire park, be sure to prepare at least 2 days in advance. The theme park "Knight Valley" is your typical theme park, not on the level of Disneyland or Six Flags. Most attractions are kids-friendly. The shows are pretty interesting but if they are closed on... More

I have been here three times actually. It is a pretty good theme park in China. They have various rides and shows. The ticket prices are reasonable enough, but not super cheap. They also have lots of places to eat and drink. It is great to get on the tram or wooden boat where you can see trees and attractions... More

Must have been school trips because it was crazy busy. Nothing opened till the afternoon. Cable cars not until 2.30. Most shows until after 2. Was disappointed. Huge place and very scenic. This review is Knight Valley only

This theme park is huge! I spent a day there and loved it. Didn't complete all the rides since i was in a hurry that day but locals say that most people take 2 days to finish exploring the entire theme park. The rides were pretty exciting so if you are an adrenaline junkie, i definitely reccommend stopping by this... More

Me and my wife decided we wanted to get away from the crazyness of the city but didn't want to venture too far afield so chose OCT East, its a really cool place with lots to do (it's HUGE!) nice walks through wooded area, hidden little bamboo forests, wetlands, flower fields and even a theme park with a small zoo....

It's bigger than I thought it would be and had some great views. Best to go on a nice day because most of it is outside. Lots of walking around and kids love it.
