Construction of a new ocean park has started in Hengqin Island, a booming tourism and leisure resort area in Zhuhai of Guangdong province.

The park is a project owned by Chimelong Group that will include an 800m long undersea tunnel, allowing visitors to walk along various marine animals.

According to Chen Jie, general manager of Chimelong Group (Zhuhai), the center will also include 10 exhibition areas with different marine features.

Chimelong, based in Guangdong, has already developed an ocean kingdom and a circus center and other hotel facilities in Hengqin, which was approved as part of the Guangdong Pilot Free Trade Zone in 2015.

The company signed an investment agreement worth of 50 billion yuan ($7.6 billion) with the Zhuhai government to facilitate its development in the Hengqin area, which borders Macao.
