waterworld

The Philippines has definitely a rich and diverse amount of marine life as our country is an archipelago.  The surrounding oceans and seas give us bountiful resource of fish and aquatic animals for food supply and of course for ecological balance.

It is but fitting that somehow an entity has put up Manila Ocean Park, just behind the Luneta Grandstand to showcase what can be witnessed under the deep seas and the shallow waters surrounding our country and even the whole of South East Asia.

The Oceanarium is divided into sections depending on the kind of water environment where the marine life is. Examples of which are Laot (Fishing Ground), Buhay na Karagatan (The Living Ocean) and Ang Kalaliman (The Deep).  There are large aquarium enclosures where the malevolently looking stingrays and sharks swim freely. The kids will enjoy watching Nemo like creatures in their coral reef area.  But its piece de resistance is the 25 meter long underwater tunnel. Be mesmerized and soak in the event of the sea creatures enveloping your whole being. Truly a deep experience.

    I just came from Hong Kong and visited their Ocean Park. Guess what! Our Ocean Park in Manila is better compared theirs. Mas malinis and I hope that Filipinos will maintain the kagandahand of the park para sa ating mga tourists.
