Yoga, hiking and glamping: Ocean Park puts the eyes on outdoor enthusiasts

Glamping tickets for a new round of Green Staycation at Ocean Park are already 90% sold out, according to the park.

With HSBC Life Well+ being this year’s main sponsor, the Green Staycation will be held from November 7 to December 18, during which visitors can attend yoga classes, go hiking and enjoy a camping trip from two days and one night at the top.

Noting that last year’s Green Staycation received “great feedback”, park chairman Lau Ming-wai said, “We expect it to be just as popular and tickets to sell out quickly. in a close future.”

He also said the park has attracted many visitors during previous Halloween events.

“October 30 and 31 saw the highest number of visitors to the park this year,” he said.

Ocean Park brought back the “Starry Summit Yoga Glamping” this year, in which glampers can meet and greet animal ambassadors, as well as practice yoga in the three designated classes: vinyasa yoga, Tibetan singing bowls, and morning stretches.

The package, which costs HK$6,888, includes two-day park admission for four people, Ocean FastTrack passes on the first day, and dinner and breakfast sets.

Yogis can choose from the 13 types of yoga classes offered by the park’s Yoga Vogue program, including the new addition of inversion yoga. They can also relax and seek their inner peace in the park’s aquarium, enjoying the underwater world while meditating to music played by instructors as seals and with thousands of fish surrounding them.

Each yoga session will last 45 minutes to an hour. Yoga packages are priced from HK$320 to HK$420, which includes an entrance ticket and a HK$30 cash voucher. The price is the same for adults and children.

Meanwhile, those who love hiking can opt for the Brick Hill Secret Unveil, in which hikers can walk along the Nam Long Shan trail and enjoy the breathtaking view of the South China Sea.

Led by park staff members, walkers can take a two-hour walk, during which they can enjoy the seascape and learn fun facts about the park.

Visitors will also have the opportunity to visit the Hong Kong Marine Life Stranding and Education Center to learn about the state-of-the-art equipment used to rescue, study and dissect marine animals, as well as the marine conservation programs.

The hikes, which will take place on Saturdays and Sundays, cost HK$400 for an adult and HK$280 for a child. Those who hold SmartFun Annual Passes or InFUNity Passes will only pay HK$200 for an adult and HK$140 for a child for the program.
