With summer being around the corner, have you decided where to take your kids yet?
Parenting is hard, and so is traveling! While the Philippines is known for picturesque sceneries and unwavering hospitality, sadly, not all places are conducive for children. I know every parent would agree that aside from the budget, it is vitally important to know if the place has a great and friendly ambiance for everyone.
Thus, to ease my frustration, I made it a habit to get fellow parents’ recommendations, as well as, collating these kid-friendly places myself, should we travel again.
For people like us, who are just cooped up at home working and homeschooling, planning a holiday trip or overnighter is a must!
So, without further ado, here are my 15 kid-friendly summer destinations you can visit, soon.
15. Nuvali Parks & Nature
Known for its famous eco-friendly parks and kid-friendly activities, Nuvali is no longer an option for stopovers. It is now becoming one of the must visit places in the Philippines. Families can enjoy activities such as a water taxi ride (Php 30/head/roundtrip), Koi feeding (Php15/bag), and bikes for rent (Php 60/hour).
Nuvali is our personal favorite destination. Even if it’s not a holiday, we go there for picnics and just simple family bonding.
14. Zoobic Safari, Subic Bay
Zoobic Safari has a lot of exciting and educational activities for kids and kids-at-heart. With Zoobic’s 11 amazing attractions namely, Zoobic Park, Rodent World, Serpentarium, Forbidden/Zoobic Cave, Tiger Safari Ride, Close Encounter, Savannah, Animal MuzOOeum, Aetas’ Trail, Hip-Hop –Bay-a-Wak, Croco Loco, is surely worth your time and budget!
