Ocean Park’s cable car ride is one of the exciting cable car rides I’ve ever taken. The round-shaped cable car gives riders a breathtaking view of the southern part of the Hong Kong island and nearby Lamma island. For one and a half kilometers, one can transfer from the lowland to the headland, and vice versa, in just eight minutes. But because of the long queue in the car ride, the Ocean Park management provided a free bus ride from the Tai Shue Wan entrance to the main entrance. It took us about 10 to 15 minutes going through the winding roads of southern Hong Kong island. From inside the cable car, we watched the long line of colorful cable cars hanging on four cables. From below, there were maintenance crews checking every part of the cable car. At the left side towards the sea, there were a number of boats and ships that were probably on the way to the Hong Kong port. Suspended on the side of the hill near the sea, the cable car ride seems safe. For those who are afraid of heights, do not look directly below but try to look at the horizon and enjoy the beautiful topography of the island.
