One fun day at Manila Ocean Park, Metro Manila, Philippines


Since I am already staying in the Province, normally we scheduled additional plans whenever we are going to Manila so that we can maximize our stay there especially when we will be running some errands that will just consume a little time, we find time to either meet our friends or schedule an activity.

Last week, we went to Manila Ocean Park and luckily we get to explore it with one of our good friend, Jayson.

The three of us are beach lovers and of course marine living things, however due to some busy schedule we couldn't schedule an out of town trip so we decided to visit Manila Ocean Park.

How to go to Manila Ocean Park?

Manila Ocean Park is located behind Quirino Grandstand along Manila Bay.

If you are familiar with the place, you would know that going to Quirino Grandstand requires a walk along Rizal Park. You can also take the LRT (Light Rail Transit). Get down at the (UN) United Nations Station and take a walk through Rizal Park and Quirino Grandstand. However, if you don't want to walk, you can ride the taxi to get inside the theme park.

My friend took the LRT while since me and my husband stayed in the nearby area, we just walk and meet my friend at the theme park entrance.
