Overseas Chinese Town East – a place to remember

  • i
Overseas Chinese Town East, also known as OCT East Resort is a vast area spanning 9 square kilometers in the city of Dameisha in Shenzhen. The resort is home to two of China’s popular entertainment parks; namely the Tea Stream Resort Valley theme park and the Ecoventure Valley theme park.

The Ecoventure Valley has five key theme arenas. When visitors enter this theme park, they encounter the splendid Giant Waterfall which is followed by the Seafield Village. This village contains a myriad of places such as the Sky Strip, Seafield Theater and Lakeside Food Court. Tourists can expect an international experience at this village. In addition, the Aqua Show showcases the vital connection between humans and nature, which is often neglected in modern life. Travellers can reach the Peak Highland, which as its name suggests provides visitors with a majestic view over the park, being the highest point on the mountain. This is accessible via the ropeway. Other attractions include the Breakers Lagoon, the Rapids Forest and Adventure Canyon.

The Tea Stream Resort Valley also contains a variety of recreational facilities. The theme arenas include the Interlaken, the Wetland Garden, Ancient Tea Town and the Sanzhou Tea Garden. The Tea Stream Resort Valley is accessible via a sightseeing train. The tour commences with a stop at Interlaken Town which is modelled based on a famed tourist resort in Switzerland. Tourists will see the influence of European architecture in the buildings, monuments and streets in the town. In addition, the valley is home to sports facilities such as an indoor tennis stadium and a water golf driving range. The highlight of the valley is the Sanzhou Tea Garden which is modelled on a Lingnan tea garden. Its construction is designed to display traditional southern china life. Imagine vibrantly dressed damsels picking tea leaves as you sip a cup of tea in a serene environment surrounded by green hills.

Travelers looking to experience the famed Overseas Chinese Town East can find accommodation at the luxurious Somerset Garden City Shenzhen, which is a Shenzhen serviced apartment. This Shenzhen serviced residence caters to both leisure and business travelers as it is located close to business and shopping districts and is equipped with modern amenities.
