Yes, you read that right! Nowadays, every place is kid friendly, but horribly boring for adults. What about adult-friendly places that you can bring your kids to? Where both parents and children can lose themselves, and do some family bonding at the same time?
We at Locale City Guide had such a question in mind too! And we did our best research, and came up with the Top 6!
1. Museo Pambata
The first interactive museum made for kids, Mueso Pambata is a good alternative for the classroom atmosphere. The whole place encourages both the kids and adults to see, touch and listen to all the interesting displays inside. Museo Pambata is also a great way of introducing Filipino culture to the kids as it is like a library, playhouse and park all rolled into one. With 8 themed rooms, you’re sure to get your money’s worth.

2. KidZania Manila
KidZania Manila is an interactive, educational city established in 2015. Located at the posh BGC in Taguig, Kidzania was designed as a mini-city for kids and teens ages 4-17 years old where they can pretend and have role playing activities about the grown-up world. What used to be 70 role-playing activities, has now increased into more than 100 activities, giving the kids a much better look at the real world with countless recognizable brands that inspire reconnaissance and excitement. It certainly is a great place for learning, exploring and discovering a kid’s dream job — doctor, firefighter, dentist, newscaster, flight attendant and more.

Within the city of Manila and very accessible, it hosts a slew of marine life including dolphins, whales and seals, cared for properly in suited temperatures despite the hot tropical climate. The kids’ faces light when they see all the colorful aquarium animals quietly and playfully gliding through the water. Adults are equally amazed, because Manila Ocean Park offers close encounter and dynamic interaction with the creatures. With more than a dozen attractions, Manila Ocean Park is one of Manila’s best places for family bonding. Aside from giving a spectacular show of marine animals, the marine park also raises awareness to help protect and preserve our oceans.
