Fun Learning at Noah’s Ark
Noah’s Ark is a relatively new tourist attraction and park aimed at families with younger children. This theme park is an educational feature and a huge landmark in Hong Kong. Located on Ma Wan Island on the edge of the waterfront, Noah’s Ark is built on the themes of nature, art, education and love. As the world’s first full-size simulation of Noah’s Ark, the park is great for kids and adults to learn something new.
The ark contains life-size sculptures of 67 exotic animals, birds and creatures. There are small reptiles for children to observe, as well as outdoor activities including an obstacle course and climbing. The park also has a resort built on the top floor of the ark should visitors want to stay over, with a view of the famous Tsing Ma Bridge – the world’s longest suspension bridge.
Apart from its focus on the Biblical Ark, the park also explores the history and culture of Ma Wan. The park is a combination of education and entertainment and aims at promoting family values, positivity and Christian awareness.
