Manila Ocean Park

April 19, '09

As a treat, we took the kids to the park. The park is located just behind Quirino Grandstand, Luneta, Manila. Our hotel was just close to the area (Swagman Hotel) just along the corner of Flores St. and Roxas Blvd. The admission fee is 400 Php for adults and 350 Php for kids. The fun will start at the oceanarium.

The Oceanarium is considered to be a large educational facility aimed at inculcating love for the environment both for the young and old. It contains vital information on climate change and global warming as well as its effects on marine biodiversity.

The oceanarium journey:

The facility is divided into 7 parts;
1. Agos (The Flow)
2. Bahura (Reef)
3. Laot (Fishing ground)
4. Buhay na Karagatan (The Living ocean)
5. Ang Kalaliman (The Deep)
6. Pagi (Stingray)
7. Pating (Shark)

In addition to, a multi-media facility is included mostly for kids where they can do colorings, paintings or interactive learning.

At the 2nd floor is called the Fish Spa where you can catch the view of the ocean or the shark viewing area.
