    My son enjoyed our time here. The place was quiet, cool and really green. One of the caretakers gamely answered my kid's questions and he was very knowledgeable. Enclosures were clean and well maintained. Must visit. A bit pricey yes but fee goes to the care of the animals so well worth it.

    Centrio CDO 4star
    They had a light & sound exhibit at the other half of the central garden at around 7 in the evening or thereabout wd Christmas lights that changes color covering the inner walls of the building surrounding the garden and sensurround speakers for audio for the holidays. An unexpected treat to mall goers. I dont know up to when it will be.

    Each Ayala Mall has its own design wc makes it non-monotonous, but always wd a circular orientation or theme in its design and wd a garden or some open area. Centrio's parking area is like a maze .

    The island is literally naked and bare so it’s the perfect spot to get away from it all. We brought wine glasses and bottles of rosé which we sipped while watching the beautiful sunset by the shore.

    This place was a lot of fun. Do buy some food for the Koi Fish and Ostriches. Feeding them is a blast as is the show at 3:30. That show is not to be missed. Very informative and they have all the stars well trained, even the gaggle of geese that opens the show. The Orangutan was as close to a human in interacting with guests as you will ever get, if he could just resist trying to have intercourse with his door hinges. My only complaint was this so-called butterfly sanctuary. It turned out, after the long walk, to be an unstaffed screened room with 6 blandly coloured butterflies. Do not waste your money on the extra ticket and energy on the walk down the road. Everbody was saying "Is this it ?". I docked a star for that scam and the state of hygeine in the park. like so many other places in the Philippines, apparently nobody got the memo that water flows down hill, so you have green algai everywhere and a bad smell. The park though is well worth a visit, especially if you have kids.

    Magic Mount APO is the highest peak overlooking the Southern ocean route to Australia. On a clear day you can see Indonesia. The best thing is you can climb directly from the Makar Wharf 2GO passenger shipping port with just a rucksack. Local people are friendly and helpful and will feed you on the way. It's easy to find a nice spot for camping and the locals will watch over you and keep you safe. A mosquito proof tent is a good idea. Everyone loves explorers in Mindanao and if you're lucky they will call you Sir Francis Drake. Life is Good and you will be so happy to reach the very top of The Philippines!

    Have lunch here on your island tour of siargao. A lot of nice huts to stay cool from the sun. You can bring your own food to eat here too.

    We had an overnight stay and had a great time. The beach is beautiful and idyllic, and there is not much commercialization, yet. The facilities are very basic and one needs to bring cooking equipment, drinking water (and everything else) via boat (!) but we all enjoyed. It really is paradise. Just get here before it is turned to another Boracay. Unique: bring all your trash out to get your garbage fee deposit. Also, one needs to waterproof everything and bring a dry change of clothing for the trip home.

    To begin with, the museum has moved to Juna Subdivision, near PWC. They will be here for next two years - according to the staff.

    This was my third attempt to visit the museum. First attempt in June failed, because they were not yet open at the new place. Second attempt in September failed because I went on Sunday, and it is closed on Sundays.

    There is no entry fee. The museum is very small - only 50 objects displayed. However it opens a window to Davao city and helps to understand the city better. It gave me leads on what I need to explore more.

    When I had some questions regarding the musical instruments, the young guide was available to answer it. There is an audio-visual (set of six or seven video clips) which is informative.

    Overall good experience. I hope they will expand.

    Eating of Saang. Love the experience of grill Saang in the charcoal. And broke it with hammer. Hopefully, they will use the rubber mallet.

    Wonderful Island to Visit. Highly Recommend to Visit Bintana Sa Paraiso for a boho and jungle vibe.

    Due to a change of plans, my family and I unexpectedly went here on the opening night, last March 24. The line was long but was well worth the wait. I love the BBQ and their flavored buchi! I haven't encountered strawberry, matcha, chocolate or ube flavored buchi in Manila. So yummy! (We even went back by Tues to buy buchi as pasalubong, lol)

    At the end of the food stalls, there are also masseuses offering services and then after were the ukays. I liked the selection of clothes available there, good material at a very affordable price.

    Very memorable experience, will definitely go back here on my next trip.
