Children's Water Fun Zone (Temporary Attraction) with Free Admission Near Sea World

on 07/29/2017 - 11:25 am

If you're looking for a place to take the kids to help them escape the heat, head on down to the Gateway One Shopping Center across the street from Sea World, where they've installed a mini water park and fun zone.

Since the new season of Game of Thrones started a couple of weeks ago, many in Shekou have been wondering who will take the Iron Throne.
