I thought Manila Ocean Park would be great as it was one of the best places to visit in Manila and that the kids would truly enjoy. Unfortunately, it was quite the opposite. It's not very convenient esp. for families. They have very few restaurants and no water stations; very few toilets and unclean. Since the park is wide, it's... More

If you in Manila it's with visiting the place. It's the manila version of sea world in San Diego but a much lower price. Recommend for families with kids.

Planning to come back here to bring my little niece [she was too small to appreciate, the time I went there] lots of shows, tours and activities for kids. I like the water and light show. Though we viewed it from the room with tequilla on hand! Lol. Bring nanny. Entrance is very affordable.

I went to the Manila ocean park just recently and I really enjoyed the Oceanarium, as well as the sea lion show and the jellyfish.

Manila Ocean Park is a good place to go if you have nothing to do, have extra cash and have half a day free to tour the park. I wasn't particularly fond of the overcrowded stalls and stores in the 'mall' area, it just seemed a little too distracting to me. One or two souvenir shops would have sufficed --... More
