Ocean Park of Hong Kong, which is a marine theme park with ocean as main theme, is opened to public on the 10th of January in 1977. After the expansion project in 2014, it now has more than 80 scenic spots and recreational facilities, and was awarded the world's best park award in 2012. Since the opening of MTR South Island Line, tourists can reach the Ocean Park more quickly. I believe the boom of the ocean park will continue unabated.
