Anyway, I have been wanting to write about places to visit here in Manila to learn history and at the same time kid friendly too. I don't know why I couldnt get myself to write but like a message from the universe I saw this in Museo Pambata:
1. Museo Pambata
FREE for Manila residents with ID
Php150 for adults
Php120 for children
2. Manila Zoo
Manila Zoo is situated in Quirino Avenue Adriatico Street Malate Manila, home to a variety of animals seen here in the country. One of the controversial animals here is Maali, a 40 year old elephant. Some animal activits fight to free Maali into its natural habitat. Manila Zoo although stands firm to keep Maali in their care.
Php20 for Manila residents
Php100 for adults
Php50 for children
Php75 for students
Luneta is home to Jose Rizal's statue and a must see place for every Filipino and tourists as well. Luneta Park offers a lot of activities fit for all members of the family. It has alot of other places to see within it like the butterfly garden, Chinese garden etc. There are free events and activities that happen there that everyone can enjoy.
5. Quiapo Church
Quiapo church is known for the Miraculous Black Nazarene. Devotees pray religiously in the Black Nazarene as it is believe to favor their prayers and desires. The Feast of the Black Nazarene is also one of the grandest as devotees come together to pay tribute to him. My father is a devotee and I remember him joining the crowd and walking barefoot.
6. National Museum Planetarium
Museum Planetarium FB Page
National Museum Planetarium is a projet of former First Lady Imelda Marcos in 1975. Its main function is to disseminate astronomical information through shows, lectures, and galleries. At the moment, Planetarium shows are closed to public but their galleries are free for all visitors.
7. Malacanang Palace
Malacanang Palace is one of the tourist spots in Manila where the president resides. You can walk from San Miguel ave and see the walls of the palace.
Out of all the seven places, my family and I have been to only two of it. What I love about lists is that I always have a new place to go and I don't have to think too much!;) Will post about our Museo Pambata and Manila Zoo trips next time.
Do you have other places to suggest for us to visit? Comment away!;)
