We were able to walk here from where our ship docked, which was nice. We got the most basic admission, which included the aquarium and the penguin exhibit. There are other options available, including an experience with hawks and one with sharks. The aquarium is very nicely done and they have some excellent exhibits, that include a wide variety of fish and other sea creatures. Once we were done with the fish, we went up to see the penguins. The inner tube slide was a lot of fun, but the penguin exhibit was very sparse (for those of us who have seen plenty of penguins), but probably good, given that Manila is rather tropical. They also had a cold room with various winter-type things that made good photo ops for people who really aren't familiar with snow. The only real negative here was that it was not possible (as far as we were able to find out) to leave the aquarium directly. And once we did exit the aquarium complex, we ended up in a mall that was very confusing to find our way out of. That said, this was definitely a nice aquarium and worth visiting. They have a huge gift shop with very reasonable prices. You should know that at the snack bar they accept only local cash, and at the gift shop you need a minimum purchase to use a credit card.
