Animal Discovery Fest at Ocean Park Hong Kong
Fri Apr 19 - Wed May 1
Families can take advantage of the upcoming public holidays in Singapore – Good Friday (19 April) and Labour Day (1 May) – to be among the first to experience the new Hong Kong Ocean Park Marriott Hotel at Ocean Park Hong Kong, and embark on a fun‐filled adventure during the Park’s Animal Discovery Fest.
Embark on a fun‐filled adventure at Animal Discovery Fest from 19 April to 1 May
Headlining this year’s festival is Meet the Walrus, the all‐new, limited‐time Get Closer to the Animal programme in which guests can observe the gigantic moustachioed creature up‐close, feel their skin, feed it and get a snapshot to capture the remarkable encounter.
13 other different interactive animal workshops and backstage explorer tours will also be available, including fun‐packed moments with the adorable kinkajou and the extraordinary steppe eagle, as well as exclusive tours to back‐of‐house facilities at The Grand Aquarium and Shark Mystique.
Ocean Park Hong Kong’s veterinary team will also host a first‐ever guided tour during the inaugural open house of the Park’s veterinary centre to share knowledge about animals spanning the sky, land and sea, as well as their work in animal care and conservation.
Taste the Best of Hong Kong’s Street Food
Meanwhile, foodies can purchase the Admission Ticket Combo with “Old Hong Kong Street Food Tasting Pass” at HK$480 (usual HK$593) and savour the all-time favourite local street snacks at one go.
Try egg puffs and pan‐fried dumplings from Michelin‐recommended eateries Mammy Pancake and Wing Lai Yuen, Hong Kong’s first sustainable fish balls – a well‐loved local delicacy made from sustainable hake, as well as Hong Kong‐style milk tea from KamCha.
