May 2013 – When spending time in the Philippines, local and foreign tourist  never run out of travel ideas and leisure activities and adventures. In fact, I haven’t been in the other regions of the country particularly those that involve rigid traveling. Philippines offers a year long chill and relax atmosphere, from summer all the way to non-peak season. Philippines  ‘getaway islands have always something amazing to experience.

Ever wonders why some foreign nationals choose to spend their retirement age in the Philippines? Google it. But here’s my  observation, Philippines have fine weather (although it juggles between extreme hot and extreme rains/floods during peak seasons). Overall Philippines has the best to offer so far: serene beaches, flora and fauna, the best tourist spot, gastronomic and exotic food, reasonable lifestyle, availability of health services, quality education, English fluency, warm and friendly locals, talented people, enjoys merry-making, OC on personal hygiene, splendid shopping destination and more shopping.

But before you hop in from the likes of Disneyland, Universal Studios, Legoland, Walt Disney World, Sanrio Puroland, or London, Spain, Japan, Egypt, Turkey, and more. Let me remind you guys to explore your own land. Nothing compares Batanes, Palawan, Camiguin, Bohol, Boracay, Davao, Cebu, Ilolo, Baguio, Tagaytay, Mindoro, etc. than being stranger in your own land.

Top 5 Leisure, Amusement and Theme Parks in the Philippines.

Manila Ocean Park
Opened in 2008, we brought our child for the first time on December 2010. I was blogging for deiville(dot)info then as a personal blog. Oceanarium is the most fun part in my own opinion because of its main attraction, the 25-metre long walkway tunnel with 220-degree curved acrylic walls where school of fish and stingrays hang around above and beside you.

Zoobic Safari
Zoobic safari has lots of tiger breeds, you can even feed them from an open area (gentle reminder though) keep your  fingers intact! 🙂 Best to enjoy the park during summer, the long trail is tiresome and yet packed with F-U-N.  It’s recommend to bring your own vehicle and wear comfortable clothing and shoes.

The Fontana Water Park is designed after U.S. style parks and incorporates many of the same technologies, sophistication and safety features as you’ll find in the finest of parks in the States. This theme park is a one-of-a-kind experience for central Luzon.
