Why Manila Ocean Park is special ?

Manila Ocean Park is the Philippines’ first and only world-class marine theme park and prime educational facility. This integrated urban resort features marine life attractions and an aqua-themed hotel where you and your family can stay in a room wherein one wall is made into a massive aquarium. It’s open every day and it features 13 different attractions. Among the most popular ones is the Oceanarium which is home to 14,000 different sea creatures, all indigenous to the Philippines and Southeast Asia. The main attraction is a 25-meter long, 220 degree curved walkway tunnel where you can have an amazing view of sea creatures swimming overhead as you walk through the tunnel. Another attraction called Trails to Antarctica brings you closer to the most mysterious continent in the world. Learn how penguins live in the Humboldt exhibit, and visit the Snow Village while you’re there (by the way, feel free to sing all the songs from the movie Frozen with your kids while you’re there—it’s the perfect setting for you to belt out “Let it Go”.). The sea lion show, All Star bird show and glass bottom boat ride are also very enjoyable for the little tykes.
