Ocean theme park celebrates 2


Zhuhai Chimelong International Ocean Tourist Resort, a premium ocean theme park owned by the Chimelong Group, has received more than 25 million visits since it opened two years ago, according to official company figures.

The resort, which is located in the free trade zone of Hengqin in Zhuhai, includes the world’s largest ocean-themed park, three luxury hotels and an international circus center.

The rapid increase of tourists has helped boost passenger flow in the Zhuhai airport, as well as promote the city’s oceanic tourist resources, according to the company.

In 2015, passenger flow in the Zhuhai airport increased by 41.5 percent year-on-year, according to the local government sources

After wide expansion in the local tourism sector, Chimelong Group signed an agreement worth up to 50 billion yuan ($7.68 billion) with the local government at the end of 2015, and plans to increase its presence in the local market in the years ahead.

Chimelong Group, based in Guangzhou, the capital of Guangdong province, also owns a large safari park in Guangzhou’s Panyu district, which is known for its role in helping nurture the world’s only live giant panda triplets in 2014.
