Manila Ocean Park

Manila Ocean Park, back of Quirino Grandstand
Entrance fee: Php400 (adult)

Still adding attractions , Ocean Park now offers more for guests to enjoy.

One of the new additions is the Aquatica. It's a fountain pyro musical show where visitors get to seat in an open stadium-like setting. It's designed so that only paying patrons get to see the full view of the show, and nearby onlookers cannot take a peak.

Another activity is the lap pool and the giant plastic ball. All entrance fees are separate.

A newly opened hotel called H2O, quite expensive, offers some rooms with aquarium wall and impeccable facilities. There are various entrances to the hotel all around Ocean Park, in different floors.

Bungee Fun activity area at the atrium of Ocean Park. There are restaurants surrounding the place, as well as the reception counter for entrance tickets. Airconditioned hallway filled with small stalls line up on the way to Ozeano Restaurant.

Zoocology booth and more knick knack stores are offered for visitors.

Rows of tiangge booths occupy one wing going to the second floor escalator, and people are required to pass thru all of them, just in case someone fancies anything from the shops. New resto White Moon caters to visitors who prefer al fresco dining.

Indoors, the Asian Food Village has extensive gastronomic choices for hungry visitors.

A very native-like setting makes every bite exciting. Food ranges from Singaporean, Thai, and other Asian cuisines. Comfy seats make for long relaxation after your Ocean Park tour.


The prices are fair, offering Asian staples like dimsum, roti, noodles.

There are like hundred seats available. The place is airconditioned, with clean wash areas.


The public toilet is clean and modern.

The Makansutra Village is like the fast food in the place, but way classier and exciting.

Upon entry to the park, visitors are at awe to see an outdoor area inside. There are crocodiles on display, and some other animals. Jungle vines hang over the wooden corridors and stairs. Guests slowly descend to the lower floor where open aquariums filled with fishes are on site.
