Rizal Park (Luneta) in Manila
0.51 km away

Built in 1902, Rizal Park was designed by American architect and urban planner Daniel Burnham. It was chosen to be the seat of American Government during the American Occupation. Its surrounding open spaces and gardens used to be a venue for the members of the elite class to socialize and host formal events. In 1913, Luneta was renamed Rizal Park, after the Philippines' National Hero and intellectual giant Dr. Jose Rizal. Rizal Park is now being revitalized as the largest urban park in Asia, with its historical monuments, gated ornamental gardens, family activities, and recurring free shows and events. The park has thirty (30) attractions and recreation areas, some of which have a minimal admission fee.

Manila Ocean Park

Manila Ocean Park is a nosedive into the Philippine waters: fascinating marine wildlife, but as complexly presented as in the sea. The main attraction is the Oceanarium (P400), which features sharks, stingrays, crocodiles, and other bizarre creatures endemic to the Philippines and Southeast Asia. The Oceanarium’s charm lies in its 25 meter (82 feet) underwater tunnel, where travelers can walk through, gaze up, and gawk at the underbellies of marine giants. Other attractions include the Jellies Exhibit (P150), Sea Lions Show and Habitat (P300), Trails to Antarctica (P300), Aquanaut Voyage (P995), Shark Encounter (P995), Fish Spa (P150), Glass Bottom Boat Ride (P150), Swimming and Fun (P200), Funtasea Games and Rides (P5/token), Birds of Prey (P150), Musical Fountain Show (P300), and the Back of the House (for field trips only).
