Throwback Thursday: Manila Ocean Park

Time really flies fast, it is Christmas season again. I haven’t even started buying gifts for my family. Oh no!

I can still remember last year around this time, we went to Manila Ocean Park. It is located at 666, Behind Quirino Grandstand, Luneta, Manila, Metro Manila, Philippines.

How to get here:

The fastest and easiest way to get there is by taking a cab. Haha.

I’m pretty sure you can also take a jeepney but definitely you would need to walk.

And so because I can’t help it, I’ve searched on how to get here. Hope that helps. ๐Ÿ™‚


You can select a package from 3 to as many as 12 attractions. For as low as 400PHP up to 1100PHP.

We bought the package with three attractions: Oceanarium, Trails to Antarctica, and the Symphony of Lights which is an evening show. Plus we also bought a ticket to see the Jellies Exhibit for an additional fee. We initially wanted to see the All Star Bird Show attraction however, that time it is not operating.

At present, they have added more attractions to their list so I guess I have enough reason to visit the place again. ๐Ÿ™‚

So this is the best shot I got of the Symphony of Lights. Haha. Sorry!

I did enjoy especially watching the Symphony of Lights. I think this is better than the Songs of the Sea in Sentosa.

Kids and kid-at-heart will surely enjoy.
