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).

Eye opening experience at the Chinese folk culture village with lots to see and do. It's made me want to see more of China. The entrance fee was ¥180. We hired a littler car (for a further approx 40£ and a ¥500 refundable deposit) for my elderly mother which made the experience even more pleasant and meant we didn't get... More

We went there to watch DJI's drone show. Before the show we had a look around the place. Cafe's were great especially Nordic Cafe where the coffees had cute characters on the foam :) Also the mini oceanarium was great as well. Even if you're not there for the food or shopping, you can still enjoy the garden and mini... More

So this is an area for Hua Qiao, or abroad Chinese! Many different types of people can be found there though not only limited to Chinese but also Malaysians, Indonesians, and or Singaporeans. Then the little river below the bridge is beautiful, so are the trees and grass around the places.

This is organized in an Alpine theme with chalet and all sort of copies, some more successful then others. You can take a cable car to the top of the mountain but when we went it was dense fog and even the edges of the bridge were hard to see! Fog lifted later with nice views. Hundreds of school children... More

There is a great Korean BBQ restaurant. Also try the Eagles Nest Bar great live music and tons of foreign beers on tap and bottles. Enjoy the live music and the ambience. There is an awesome bakery too with western bread, so you know, most bread in china is sweet. This place has decent French bread for taking home.

I visited here on a few occasions for dinner and for shopping. There is a great Apple Store and an indoor ice skating rink during certain seasons. I enjoyed a nice meal here, but there are so many options. Happy wandering.

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.
