Theme Park Obsessive: The Theme Park Guy

In Destination Guide, Our Travel Stories on 2011/04/19 at 4:04 pm

For those of us who love theme parks, the thought of quitting our jobs and going on trips to visit every theme park on earth is recurring and daily. Such an amazing dream to have, yet few have ever realized it. You might become jealous if you find a young German man is living this dream.  Since 2007, he’s been visiting theme parks around the world publishing online reviews, posting pictures and videos. His idea is simple:

“My ongoing journey to theme parks around the globe is also a study of diverse cultures and the different responses these playgrounds evoke in them. Japanese are crazy about souvenirs, Americans love roller coasters and Eastern Europeans like to flirt in water parks – there is so much to discover!…My aim is to give you an overview of all theme parks in the world through pictures, text and video, from the ground and from the air, whether they are under construction, up-and-running or half-demolished. “

This man named Stefan Zwanzger wears a tailor-made roller-coaster-themed hat in bright red so he is hard to miss. You might find him in June when he comes to visit Hong Kong. Check out his website.

Cheung Chau is a beautiful, fascinating South China Sea island. It is easily reached from Hong Kong’s main business district by high-speed ferry in thirty minutes, or preferably, if it’s a sunny day, by slow ferry that takes one hour. It’s a scenic boat ride, commencing with the spectacular high-rise commercial buildings of the Central business district and then the towering residential blocks which line the harbor foreshores all the way to harbor entrance. The contrast on arrival in the fishing harbor of Cheung Chau is extreme. There are no cars on Cheung Chau and the harbor front and bustling back streets are full of interest.

Hong Kong Island was ceded to Britain under the Treaty of Nanking, but the area was too small to be viable and the original territory stopped at Boundary Street, hence its name. Britain wanted more land on which to farm and build, so in 1898 leased the New Territories from China. This increased the size of the colony by more than 10 times. The Lease was for 99 years and the region became  known as the “New Territories”. The region consisted of Lantau Island (the biggest of the group), Lamma Island, Cheung Chau Island, Tsing Yi and numerous smaller islands. A large piece of flat land which finished at the Shenzhen River, formed most of the new boundary between Hong Kong and China. This is a tour of Hong Kong’s countryside, the rural and the traditional. Visit the Yuen Yuen Institute, Tai Mo Shan , Hong Kong’s tallest mountain and stop at Luen Wo Market to enjoy the atmosphere of this traditional community.  Continue along the border with mainland China to Luk King, passing through the Plover Cove Country Park to Sam Mun Tsai fishing village to see how local fisherfolk breed fish in submerged cages.

  •  Heritage Tour (Morning Tour):

When most visitors think of Hong Kong, Heritage is not a word that springs to mind. Although most are aware of the long history of the ex British Colony, they see it as being all sky-scrapers and banks. Perhaps surprisingly, there is still quite a bit of heritage left in Hong Kong; from temples and fishing villages, to ancestral halls and old defensive walled villages. An English speaking guide (other languages are available on request) will meet you in the lobby of your hotel.

  • A week with the YHA (Youth Hostels Association) including Hiking (7 days):
    A surprisingly inexpensive option. The superbly situated hostel is high on Mount Davis, overlooking the entrance to Hong Kong’s spectacular harbor. The nightly fireworks display at Hong Kong’s Disneyland can be seen in the distance, far across the island studded South China Sea. This tour package also includes a Hong Kong Island day tour, a climb up the Dragon’s back, visits to Shek O, Big Wave Bay and Sai Kung Country Park. An entire day spent on Lantau Island plus a day excursion to Macau.
  •  Macau Excursion (duration 10 hours)- daily operate:

Inclusive: Seat-in coach, lunch and round trip ferry tickets to Macau.
