This year’s “Summer Escapes” series starts off with an easy one.
My team had decided to visit this newly opened attraction in Olongapo, Zambales, which boasts of being the biggest floating playground in Asia today.
How to get there (from Manila): land travel – private or public transport
Things to do: swimming, playtime!
Budget: PhP799 for 2-hr pass, PhP1,099 for half-day, and PhP1499 for whole day pass. On-line booking discounts are available, so check out their website.
Suggested side trip/s: Subic Bay Freeport
Feedback: For an all-adult group, the 2-hour pass may be enough, if you know what I mean. All that jumping around the various inflatable stops can be tiring. Not sure, though, for the kids.
Food is sold on-site, but may be pricey, so if you have a big group, the corkage of PhP500 for when you bring in food for 1-7 persons may be more than worth it.
We were told there was an inflatable zoo, but we did not see it.
All in all, we all enjoyed the trip very much.
