Another great way to entertain your kids is by taking them to the aquarium! We’ve been here pre- pandemic but we realised that they were too young and could barely remember anything. So we brought them back during our latest trip, and we were shocked with what we witnessed.
The kids were super happy and excited! I think their ages (7 and 5) are the best to bring them in the aquarium. They were overjoyed to see all sorts of sea creatures, and were very specific in their descriptions and thoughts. They kept running around to find new species and were telling us all about the types of fish they see.
It also helps that Aiden can read the descriptions on each tank making him more interested with a specific fish.
Is Manila Ocean Park open and ready for post- pandemic activities?
YES! They were very organised and safe when it came to social distancing. All kids were required to wear a mask, our temperature were checked, and they required the adults to present their vaccination cards.
Here are some things to take note when going to Manila Ocean Park:
🌼 Choose a good day- according to their staff, Thursday is the best day to come because they are not as crowded compared to weekends.
🌼 Bring extra masks- Kids will be active and running around, masks can fall or get wet. Be prepared with an extra mask for them at all times.
🌼 For little kids, bring a stroller- The place is huge! And you will be doing a lot of walking. So better to bring a stroller for your little ones to chill in front of the tanks.
🌼 Arrive at the Sea Lion show arena early- The best seats are in the middle aisle, so don’t wait for 4:30 and grab some seats before it’s all taken. Just a quick note on this, we sat on the far right corner to avoid people.
🌼 Buy your tickets online- when you arrive, you will need to line up to buy tickets. To save energy and time, buy them online! You can either get them from their website or through Klook!
Will be uploading a vlog about our Manila Ocean Park trip soon!
