Manila Ocean Park
Another recommended feature at the Ocean Park is its newest attraction: the marine life habitat and sea lion show. Open daily, the show features five new South American Sea Lions - with names like Isabel and Sandra - which are a dazzling addition to the park as they talk and clap their way into visitors' hearts.
For a more interactive experience, you can make an appointment at the fish spa where you submerge your hands and feet into a pool filled with dozens of little fish that gently nibble away at dead skin. Common in most Southeast Asian countries, this age-old form of skin therapy may tickle, but feels nice after a little while.
Consisting of a sprawling 86,000 square feet (8,000 square meters) of park space, the Ocean Park is located just near Rizal Park. Considered to be a little pricey at the end of the day, each of the exhibits requires paying a fee. For the fish spa, the fee is a mere $3.64 per person, while the oceanarium costs $9.70 per adult and $8.50 per child. These attractions are open daily and sometimes on the holidays, making for a convenient day out.
