Most people would be familiar with Noah's Ark . Noah's Ark is the vessel in the bible build by Noah to save his family and a pair of the world's animals from the great flood.
Given its biblical roots, it is surprising that Noah's Ark can be found in Hong Kong. Actually this is not the real Noah's Ark , but a theme park build around the concept of Noah's Ark with a full size replica as part of the facade.
|Getting to Noah's Ark|
Getting to Noah's Ark Hong Kong was a mini adventure by itself. We decided the best way would be by Ferry traveling across the Victoria Harbour to AMA Wan Island. The ferry can be taken from Central Ferry Pier No 2. The journey takes about 30 minutes.

The majestic Noah's Ark can be spotted from the ferry terminal. Opened in May 2009, this theme park is lesser known than Disneyland or Ocean Park. If you are expecting thrill rides or shows, you may be a tad disappointed here. However if you are going to the park with young children, this would be the perfect place to spend an educational day in Hong Kong.

A tour around the Ark Expo would probably take about 20 minutes.

In all honesty , this is the best educational displays we had come across in our escapades both locally and overseas. We think the Treasure House is excellent for children age 10 and below. Maybe since Singapore Science centre is renovating, they may like to take a leaf out of the Trasure House book.
In addition, Noah's Ark is located near Lantau Island. We do recommend a day trip combine with a visit to Lantau Island via the Ngon Ping 360. Transportation is relatively a breeze with a bus ride NR 330 ( near the ferry terminal) to Tsing Yi Station and thereafter a MTR ride to Tung Chung (15 min). Shopping is optional too at The outlet shopping mall Citigate located next to Tung Chung MTR.
And that is precisely what we did... Coming soon, our trip to Lantau Island!
