One of the best things about the holiday season is it gives people the chance to bond with the people most important to them. This typically ranges from holiday staycations to attending parties and reunions. However, the extra downtime the holiday provides can also be a great way for families and barkadas living in and around Metro Manila to try something new. If you’re looking for ways to make this holiday season a little more memorable, why not try these fun new activities over the course of your Christmas break:
Ditch the usual Christmas spectacles and head over to the Manila Ocean Park for a unique holiday experience. Their Trails to Antarctica—the only penguin exhibit in the country—is a must-visit, offering you an up-close encounter with these adorable creatures. Watch as they waddle and slide on ice, making for a delightful show that kids and adults alike will enjoy. During the holidays, Manila Ocean Park also hosts a mesmerizing Mermaid Show. Be captivated as professional mermaid performers glide gracefully underwater, showing off their swimming prowess and impressive breath-holding skills. It’s a magical sight that will surely leave you in awe.
Experience the magic of the holidays and experience a Christmas by the Lake at Lakeshore Taguig. A project of the local government, Christmas by the Lake is a six-hectare outdoor attraction that features a Dancing Light Tunnel, light shows, concerts, and a village train. It’s one of the latest Christmas villages in Metro Manila and well-worth the visit. This year, the main attractions include the Walkway of Lights, a pathway filled with radiant displays and picturesque views, and the Graffiti Tunnel, a black light art experience that features murals from local artists.
The holiday season is the perfect time to indulge your sweet tooth. Make it even more special by baking your own holiday cake at I Did It Myself Bakery. Here, you get to don an apron and bake your own cake from scratch. From selecting ingredients to decorating your masterpiece, the bakery provides everything you need for this sweet adventure. In light of the holiday season, they’re also offering special holiday-themed cakes for guests to replicate. I Did It Myself Bakery has branches in both SM Megamall and Ayala Malls Manila Bay.
Say goodbye to the old year and welcome the new one in style by attending a New Year’s Eve Countdown Party at one of Metro Manila’s integrated resorts.
