Manila Ocean Park

It was May of 2008 when I had my wonderful experience in Manila Ocean Park, though during this time, it is not yet finish, only the oceanarium had open this time on the left wing..The entrance is 400 per person.

The Manila Ocean Park’s Oceanarium promises a "deeper experience" as it features an assortment of colorful fishes and invertebrates indigenous to the Philippines and Southeast Asia contained in 12,000 cubic meters of seawater.
The Oceanarium journey is divided into six sections and each section will carry a Filipino name: "Agos"; "Bahura"; "Buhay na Karagatan"; "Pating"; "Ang Kailaliman"; and "Laot". 
replicates the water flow from a fresh water source that eventually leads to the open ocean, creating a model of interconnectedness between land and sea. 
It then takes one through the different depths of the sea showcasing each area’s beautiful and natural inhabitants.
Its main attraction is a 25-meter long, 220 degree curved acrylic walkway tunnel. Visitors will be exploring the secrets of the ocean and surrounded by such underwater wonders without actually getting wet.

After paying the Entrance Fee.P400.00
We were so amazed at the oceanarium experience. I was thinking how’d they put all those sea creatures inside?

The journey started at Agos(Flow) water cascading from an artificial waterfall that flows into 8 different water tanks displaying various flora and fauna. They created a model of the interconnectedness between land and sea. The rocky shoreline is showcased in a Touch Pool where one can physically encounter animals on display.
