For the love of exploration, we walk into the busy grounds of Roxas Boulevard, Luneta Park and Intramuros. This happens for 5-days of which attending a seminar in the morning and 5-days of exploring Manila in the afternoon (5 PM-onward). This is a part of the 5-Days Manila Challenge.
After the seminar, we tried again walking along Roxas Boulevard and decided to continue walking to reach Intramuros. It was a long walk but with my girls being so energetic and so bubbly, it was certainly one great adventure.
From Roxas Boulevard, we cross the Ped Xing going to Ocean Park. A friend wants to see what’s inside it, so I did tour them around.
I had been to Manila Ocean Park, twice and it keeps on getting better and better every year.

Aside for the Manila Ocean Park, beside it is the Hotel H2O. It was known to be a member of the Europe-based World Hotels, that features a aquarium-themed rooms and suites. I once researched on it’s rates and I backed-out on it. I am an explorer and I travel on a budget, my budget determines my itinerary and not the other way around.
I also took my friends to the playground, I visited the first time I went to Ocean Park. It has always been open to the public but it was nothing like what I had remember, the little playground had been totally different and abused. It was messy, not well-maintained, some were broken, yet still lots of kids are playing. I wish that the park management will reconstruct it…
Manila Ocean Park is one of the best places in the metro. I highly recommend this place for every kids, kid-at-heart and the whole family. My personal favorites are the oceanarium, jellies, antartica and the musical fountain show. See it so you’ll know why.
