written on July 6th, 2017 by Kristiana Rule
Taking your child to vacations has been scientifically proven to improve their over-all development. According to this article by The Telegraph, children who go on holidays with their parents tend to have higher self-esteem and increased brain development. And that’s beside the loads of fun and memories they get when they’re having fun away from home.
Here are some of the best child-friendly destinations you can take your tots to:
The Mind Museum
Science truly comes alive in this one-of-a-kind museum in Bonifacio Global City. The Mind Museum has 250 interactive exhibits that both kids and parents can enjoy. There’s fun and informative shows about space, the beginnings of the world and live interactions with their resident scientists all day long.
Enchanted Kingdom has been on every Filipino kid’s bucketlist since, well, ever. With almost 20 rides all over the 25-hectare area, it’s arguably the most popular theme park in the country. EK has rides for every age group— from curious toddlers to thrill-seeking teenagers. It’s one of the perfect places to have a unique family bonding.
SM Seaside City’s Sky Garden
What’s unique about SM Seaside’s Sky Garden is that it has a beautiful playground designed by none other than Kenneth Cobonpue. It’s vibrant and well-maintained—and free! It also has a mini-water park that is perfect for kids, especially in the summer.
Davao Crocodile Park
Kids will love the happy and well-maintained animals at the Davao Crocodile Park. There’s many things to enjoy like interacting with the animals, and enjoying their unique crocodile ice cream. While the park does have an impressive population of crocs for conservation, they also have lots of animals like Bengal tigers, ostrich and birds of prey. The highlight of the trip is a show featuring clever tricks and a call for conservation.
Campuestohan Highland Resort
This theme resort up in the highlands of Bacolod is a quirky place full of superheroes and dinosaurs, fun rides and even a giant Kingkong. The out-of-this-world resort features swimming pools, playgrounds, rides, sprawling grounds with a beautiful view, and funny statues all around.
Plantation Bay Resort and Spa
