 Overseas China Town (OCT)

Overseas China Town (OCT)

Written by Candice SongUpdated Sep. 4, 2023

This theme park stretches about 9 square kilometers from the coast to high up a mountain in Shenzhen. It comprises Ecoventure Valley and Tea Stream Valley as the main park areas. Ecoventure Valley offers tourists with a natural landscape experience and features water parks with innovative science education facilities, like Fiord Land Forest and Seafield Town.

OCT was built at the cost of 3.5 billion yuan and features outdoor sporting activities, science education facilities, Eco-tourism and leisure facilities in an integrated urban mountain theme resort. This beautiful, town-based theme park is the city's tourism model district, and features advanced management practices, implemented in an attempt to see the city 'returning to nature'.

Areas in the theme park include Ecoventure Valley, Ancient Tea Town, Interlaken Mineral Spa, Interlaken Aqua Boutique Hotel, Interlaken Parkview Hotel, Interlaken Youth Inn, Wind Valley Sports Park, Huaxing Temple, Leisure Park, and Tianlu Mansion.


Tourists enjoy all kinds of rides in the Ecoventure Valley. One of the latest additions at the Ecoventure valley is a wooden coaster ride inspired by Great Coasters International. This coaster brings you all the way to the vista point, and, if you choose, all the way to Tea Valley. Another interesting ride is the waterfall flume.

Interaction of local and international cultures

The park also offers an interaction of Chinese and Western cultures at the Yintelagen Sanzhou area, wetlands garden, tea garden, and the old town, among other areas.

Seafield area is a model American town in the 19th century. The area offers wine culture, a lakeside gallery, and an inn. The town has a series of bronze sculptures of people picking grapes and brewing wine. The area is presented culturally as a wine town, although tourists also eat local dishes and taste local tea. They get to enjoy the Zen tea culture, tea distillery, pottery workshop and watching tea seremonies.

The park also has a model Swiss town with London phone booths and lakeside restaurants.

Interesting landscapes

OCT theme park features mountain areas in architecture styles that integrate American and European cultures. Tea Valley Resort is a "world" of flowers and green landscapes. The calm, beautiful garden in the mountainous scenery offers tourists an experience of Chinese and Western cultures. The town of Interlaken has an Alpine theme.


Tourists can play golf on two 18-hole golf courses: Wind Valley Golf Course and Public Golf Course.

How to get there

Board Bus J1, Tour Bus 6 or Airport Bus Route 6 to reach the Ecoventure Valley (Daxiagu) stop.
