So we decided to visit Manila Ocean Park and it was MUCH MUCH fun :D, here is a little about the park.
The Manila Ocean Park is an oceanarium in Manila, Philippines. It is owned by China Oceanis Philippines Inc., a subsidiary of China Oceanis Inc., a Singaporean-registered firm that has operated four oceanariums in China. It is located behind the Quirino Grandstand at Rizal Park. It opened on March 1, 2008. In terms of floor space, the 8,000 square metres (86,000 sq ft) oceanarium is larger than the Sentosa Underwater World oceanarium in Singapore, and features a 25-metre (82 ft) underwater acrylic tunnel.
Although the park is open, there was a construction and development.
- First Phase – Oceanarium had its soft opening date on March 1, 2008.
- Second Phase – includes the marine-themed mall and the hotel, theme park, outdoor pools, restaurants which opened in mid to late 2008. The four-star Hotel H20 Manila opened its doors in 2009.
- Third Phase – the open marine habitats which were opened in the second quarter of 2009.
- Fourth Phase – The part of the Marine-themed mall was closed and is replaced by Trails to Antarctica. Trails to Antarctica opened in mid-2012.
Ok enough of the boring stuff here is the video 😀
